24,000 miles, marked as actual on title. Rust free, it lived in the
Scottsdale AZ area until 2010. Factory red, 4-speed XL. Exceptional

Buckingham. His work has generated 20 gold and 12 platinum records

EXTERIOR: This is a gorgeous car, the fit and finish is amazing.
The Arizona rust free body is straight as an arrow and all the body
panels are square and flush. I don't see any bubbles, cracking or
shrinking. Born Rangoon red, the paint is polished like glass. The
door jambs are even as slick as the outside. Every piece of
exterior trim looks like it's either new or restored. Upfront the
grill, bumper, emblems, headlight bezels, fender spears look new.
The new emblem in the middle of the grill is actually the handle
that releases the hood. The moldings down the sides look new. The
stainless trim around the windshield is polished like chrome. The
chrome vent window frames are brilliant chrome. New emblems, it
says 406 on the fenders. In back the tail panel is mint including
the black painted squares. Taillights, bumper, emblems are like
new. It has Ford script mirrors. The windshield looks new. The
weather strips, window seals and sill plates have been replaced.
Crisp white convertible top is new. It's power and fits real nice.
Correct wire wheel hubcaps have spinners and are on new looking
INTERIOR: It is just as beautiful inside. It is an XL so it has
bucket seats and a console. The seats have new cushions so they
feel firm and the upholstery fits without wrinkles. New correct
upholstery. The door panels are mint, the lights work. The dash
area is excellent- the lenses, knobs, trim is real nice. Excellent
carpet, new floor mats with 406 embroidery. It has seat belts front
and back. The interior chrome is mint. The center console and seat
trim sparkle. It has correct shifter with reverse lockout. Steering
wheel, visors, mirror are excellent. It is upgraded with newer heat
and air conditioning. It also has a retro stereo with amp and cd
changer in the trunk.
ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Less then 3,000 miles on rebuilt engine. We
were told it was rebuilt as a 406. It has a dual feed Holley carb
with oval air cleaner. New heat and air conditioning system. New
power brake system. It is detailed real sharp. All the metal

UNDERSIDE: Absolutely bone dry, rust free original metal. It hasn't
been covered up with any spray paint, it is untouched original. The
lower inner quarters and rockers are spotless too. Bottom of the
motor is clean, has correct canister fuel pump. Original T-10
4-speed trans was out and serviced. It's cleaned up like new.
Original 3.50 rear end. The front end has misc new parts - front
control arm bushings, tie rod, swaybar end links, etc. In back it
has new gas shocks. The brakes were serviced- new bleeders and
hoses. New dual exhaust system.
Bottom line this is a very desirable car. I think the condition is
exceptional and it is beautiful to look at. A 4-speed with air
conditioning in a convertible is certainly in high demand. The new
owner is going to get a car they will enjoy immensely!
