Vehicle Description

1978 Ford Thunderbird A genuine 'time-capsule' beauty! Less than 50,000 miles on this classic T-Bird. The interior appears as in the showroom, the exterior the same but with a slight patina. It has sat in inside storage for 20+ years, and required some (a lot of) mechanical work to get it to its present state. The (302) engine was rebuilt with: - .030-over pistons - rings - valves - pushrods - bearings The fuel system was completely replaced with: - rebuilt carburetor - new fuel pump - new fuel tank - new fuel sending unit Additionally: - new Kumho tires (including spare) - new battery - new ignition module Would not hesitate to set sail for California in this beauty. It glides (floats?) down the road in quiet comfort. Cons? Will leave it up to the proud new owner to: - test the A/C? All the original components are there, but you may want a more modern compressor - repair/replace the 2-piece vinyl top? It is intact and there has no moisture hiding underneath. However, there are a number of splits that should be sealed/replaced. - paint flaw on the driver side rear quarter.Not known whether fuel was spilled or there is some separation from a minor repair? The 99% of the paint is too nice to repaint the entire car. - 8G87F314385 8 = 1978 G = Chicago Plant 87 = 2dr Hardtop F = 302 engine Please Note The Following **Vehicle Location is at our clients home and Not In Cadillac, Michigan. **We do have a showroom with about 25 cars that is by appointment only **Please Call First and talk to one of our reps at 231-468-2809 EXT 1 **
