This car was purchased about “7” years ago from Brandon Classics in Griffin, Georgia. The car was in very good condition and drivable when purchased. Engine is strong and shows no sign of problems. Interior is in good condition. Minor changes/fixes were made but the car has given no major problems. Some include new paint. Some window/door seals replaced, the rest of the seal kit will go with the car. Alternator, tires and battery are relatively new. Lower steering column bushings replaced. Intake and value cover gaskets replaced. Recently tuned up (plugs, wires, points, condenser, air filter, fuel filter and PVC). All “4” new shocks come with the car, they have “not” been installed yet. New radiator, heater core, all hoses and belts replaced. It had a Rochester 4 bbl. carb when purchased, the owner replaced it with a new Holley. All power windows & locks work, I don’t know of anything on the car that is not functioning. There is a small battery maintainer installed and works very well keeping battery up, cord can be seen in the dash view pic. All parts and documents related to the car will be with it. It has a clear title, is currently tagged with Virginia state inspection and driven occasionally. If you are looking for a “driver”, this is a great car. I am helping a friend sell it, I will get back to you as promptly as I can with answers to your questions. Feel free to request specific pictures. Note: The pictures shown in the ad of the VIN #’s are from a previous title, the cowls above the firewall and radiator. A phone call to the owner can be arranged if a buyer is serious. Thank you for looking, have a great day!

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
