#43 1959 FORD THUNDERBIRD
1959 Ford Thunderbird - 34,700 Original Miles
Great example of a survivor. This car was found in 2012 after 21 years of heated storage. The low mileage is because it was kept at a cabin in Wisconsin and only used during visits to the lake. The car has 95% plus original paint, color Tamarac Green a Thunderbird only color in 1959. I did replace the seats, carpets, dash, and added an Alpine stereo. Absolutely no rust, bottom of the car is as clean as the top. After storage the entire drive train was gone through to make sure she was road ready again. I have put on 2500 trouble free miles, including trips to Saint Paul for “Back to the 50’s” weekend. “DA BIRD” runs and drives beautifully! I did install a new 500 cfm Edelbrock carburetor and Pertronix Electronic Ignition for drivability. The original Holley was rebuilt and works great as well and is included.
Many manuals and receipts for work done include as well as the original wheels, wheel covers, and new narrow white wall steel belted radials. Also lots of other miscellaneous parts. If interested I have all the original seat covers and carpets which were still in fair condition.
