This T-Bird is overall a pretty solid vehicle. The body panels are pretty straight and solid although there is some body filler on the front left quarter-panel behind the tire. The rear corners of the hood look to have some repairs performed and the gap against the cowl could use some adjustment. The hood does open and close completely. Trim on the vehicle is complete and aside from a couple of minor dents on the driver side front quarter they are straight. There is some overspray on trim pieces and rubber. The paint has a decent shine to it. The front bumper is in pretty good condition but the front passenger side has scome scuff marks. The rear bumper is straight but also have some scuffing. Both bumpers show wear but do not have any peeling chrome. Grill is straight and is not missing any pieces. Glass throughout the vehicle is in good shape and has no cracks.
Interior is complete and in good shape. The door and rear panels show some slight fading. Panels looks to have been resprayed. The dash panel is new and in good condition. The vinyl covered seats are in great shape, comfortable and clean. Carpet is clean and does not show much wear as the floor mats have kept everything nice. The carpeting over the hump in the back on the floor does show some fading. The gauge cluster is complete and seems to be operating as should. Radio does work. Blower for the heater and defroster does not come on. Steering wheel is complete and without cracks. Wheel is covered with an aftermarket wrap.
This T-Bird runs and drives well. The engine starts easily and has a nice idle. Car drives straight down the road and the transmission shifts as it should. The brakes seem to be adequate and work as they should. Electric windows all work. The electrics for the top were rewired and do work but occasionally one of the solenoids on the deck flap needs to be jumped. An Edelbrock 1406 carb is installed but the original comes with the car.
This Thunderbird is mechanically sound and a great driver.
