1959 Ford Thunderbird
Mileage: 97,892 Selling $11,000-$4,800 under average book.
This 1959 Thunderbird is a rust free car that the original buyer in California owned for 40 years. Owner 2 was his daughter, in California, who owned it for 7 years. At that time the car had 92,000 miles. From there the car went to Washington State, West Virginia, and Kentucky. I have approximately $15,500 invested in this car. Selling due to health at a reduced price of $11,000.
Rebuilt 352/300h.p. V8. Transmission professionally rebuilt in Aug. 2011 with 97,401 miles. New tires, gas tank and sending unit replaced in 2010. Car also had some new interior, but I am not sure what was replaced, maybe the carpet. Car was repainted a new color called Brandy wine and Colonial White. This color was only available on the Thunderbird. Also all new door moldings were replaced at that time. Also new leaf springs installed. New upper and lower ball joints, tie rod, rebuilt master cyl. New frt. And rear wheel cyl. Recent new brake shoes. Life time frt. End alignment by firestone. All fluids replaced. The list goes on. I replaced the quarter window seals that were brittle from age, and also the dome light lens. I can not think of any thing it needs mechanically. Engine is tight, runs smooth, no smoke at all. I have all paper work back to 1959, including all license plates, owners manual, original build sheet, window sticker, original bill of sale, and repair documents which probably exceed the price of the car. Car is original, rust free and still has original undercoating. bumpers are very presentable, side spears are excellent. Has Original glass. Car has P.S./ P.B. and power seat. Original AM radio and clock still work.
