This Thunderbird has its original motor and transmission. Because it has sat for so long, the engine is probably stuck. Car is mostly complete. Would make a great project! No title. It was lost several years ago. We can apply for and receive a title for an additional $300 if the car is paid for at full asking price.
Please do not call asking for parts off whole vehicles. My phone floods with calls from guys looking for parts. It’s frustrating. We are not a salvage yard. Parting cars leaves the guy who buys the whole car scrambling to find these parts that I sold. I will not do it!
All vehicles are being sold in as-is condition. We do not warranty them. We do our best to give the most accurate descriptions and will disclose any information we know about the vehicle. Keep in mind, these vehicles are over 60 years old. We did not buy them new. They have been passed around several times, sat in fields or barns for most their life span and been pulled around by who knows what. They are by far perfect! Please ask us for more photos if you are unsure about the condition. Getting photos of the underside of a vehicle is difficult as we do not have a car lift.
Buyers can make payment at any time. For eBay customers, full payment is required within 48 hours of purchasing. After the 48 hours, a case will be opened against you. We accept check, money orders, Paypal and all major credit cards. There is a 3% charge for all Paypal and credit card charges. For non-eBay customers, a non-refundable deposit can also be made. A deposit will hold a vehicle for 7 days. After the 7 days, buyer will lose deposit and vehicle will be held for resale. Buyer has 30 days from the time of making full payment to collect vehicle, unless prior arrangements with us are made. After 30 days, buyer will lose vehicle and any money paid. We do not refund money. We are not a storage facility and need the space for new inventory. Like any other car dealer, once a car is paid for, it’s yours!
Transporting vehicle is your responsibility. We can assist in finding transport and loading vehicle. We have a skidsteer on site, but cannot drive the skidsteer onto their trailer or lift vehicle up. Please find a transporter that has a flatbed trailer and winch. Don’t send a driver who doesn’t have a winch or means of pulling the vehicle up on the trailer.
Some of our vehicles do not have titles. (please ask first) The titles were lost several years ago and the vehicles were abandoned. We can apply for and receive a title, at an additional cost of $300, for a vehicle if it’s bought at full asking price. The process to receive a title back from the Minnesota DMV takes between 4 and 6 weeks. Vehicles must be collected in the 30 day period, weather or not we do apply for those titles. We then will mail the title to you.

A few years ago, as part of the filming of a National Geographic special Driving America, I spent time in Traverse City, Michigan, where Hagerty opened its garage and car collection to the television crew. As part of the project, I drove a 1915 Ford Model T, a 1963 Chevrolet “split-window” Corvette, a 1960 Porsche […]
I was half asleep when he knocked on the door. “Rich, you up?” He entered the room and sat at the end of the bed. “Yeh, what’s up?” My voice reflected the late night before. He glanced around the room, noting the strange art and artifacts that made my habitat. Then he directed his eyes […]
“Hi! My name is Thelma…” is how the advertisement for the Pick of the Day begins. The car is a 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible and the advertisement, placed with ClassicCars.com by the private seller in Palmyra, Indiana, is creative, allowing “Thelma” to tell her own story. Obviously, this red T’bird is named Thelma because of […]

With Ford unveiling its modern Bronco, an original exudes loads of street cred, especially if it’s been fitted with a V8 like the one on the latest episode of “Jay Leno’s Garage.” This 1968 Ford Bronco is part of Leno’s own collection. The funny man was gifted the SUV on the eve of his last taping […]
