1965 Ford Thunderbird, clean title in hand. Odometer shows under 95k miles. 390 V8, automatic transmission. Runs and drives, however you can’t go very far as it needs a new (or rebuilt) radiator and possibly water pump. I have a new thermostat but not yet installed.
New parts include stainless steel brake lines (except for 2 small lines I had to bend myself with copper lines), new calipers up front, brake pads and resurfaced front rotors, resurfaced drums in the rear along with new shoes/springs/drum cylinders, replaced master cylinder, stainless gas lines, new gas tank, sending unit. Powder coated major suspension components up front and replaced almost all front bushings, ball joints, new coil springs and shocks etc. New heavy duty front sway bar hasn’t been installed yet. Media blasted front wheel wells and rubber coated. Media blasted trunk and treated with Eastwood products.
Needs weather stripping in trunk to seal properly. Trunk channel needs replacing along the top- I have new metal channels, not yet installed. All window motors need attention. Sequential rear turn signals in working order, really cool. Headliner needs to be pinned back up- but has a small hole on passenger side. I have the fender skirts and 3 hubcaps, missing one. Has been repainted original color at some point. Could be color sanded and buffed to make a cool survivor/patina look. Needs complete exhaust system replaced from manifold to tail pipe.
Rust? Very little. Floor pans are all solid, no holes. The original undercoating is peeling off, but that coating protected the floor pans through all of these years. Small spots on lower doors at the corners. Smaller spot below rear window on passenger side. Trunk channel as mentioned earlier and battery tray needs to be replaced (I have that part too). Spare tire and jack parts included.
Generally a nice survivor. With a bit of work, will make a nice warm weather cruiser.
