1960 Ford Thunderbird with the Golde sunroof. About 2,500 were ever
made, which T-bird experts believe there are only a few hundred
left out there. How true that really is, I'll never know, but they
still are a rare sight. He's owned it since 1984, and it's been
garage kept since then. Everything is in fairly good shape for it's
age. In the past twenty years it hasn't been driven much. Once or
twice a year maybe around the block, to church, or to the gas
station is about it. I usually fire it up several times a year just
cause. Carb could use a tune up, and the mufflers have got some
holes in them so it sounds cammed. I've never tested the Air
conditioner, but I'm sure it's empty and non-functional by now,
however, someone may know how to fix it and that person isn't me.
Other than that everything is functional as far as I know including
the stereo and electric seats. He claimed the engine smoked quite
badly after a while, so he had it overhauled at Bountiful Ford in
2001. Paperwork is provided. The engine has had very few miles on
it since then. Over the past few years I've tinkered with it and
replaced some brake hard-lines, coolant reservoir, and driver side
door glass. Tires will need to be replaced as they are cracking and
from the early 90s. The trunk hinge doesn't like to keep the lid
up, so a special edition wood stick is provided at no extra charge.
Now onto the weird stuff. The breakdown of the VIN shows it is a
7.0l hardtop with a 3spd auto which is correct to my knowledge. The
data plate decoder shows the exterior color as being brown, and
interior as beige. My grandfather bought it as white exterior and
black interior. He claims the owner he purchased it from never did
a restoration. So, armed with that information I'm inclined to say
the entire interior has been swapped, and the exterior was painted
very professionally at some point, not some Maaco presidential
special. Or, less likely, the plate is wrong.
