Price reduced - restoration is 23 years old, so sold as is!
This t-bird has been owned by me since 1988. In 1989 extensive mechanical work was done to restore/replace worn out parts and I have all maintenance record and purchase receipts since 1988. The exterior/interior was re-done in 1993 using original PPG colors (Corinthian White top and Rangoon Red body); all the metal trim (chrome and stainless steel) was also cleaned and polished; an after-market AM/FM 100 watt radio was installed in 2008; new 3" whitewall "gangster" tires and front end suspension were done in 2009; front windows on both drive and passenger side operate from the console; the dashboard has been protected since I bought the car and is in excellent condition; the a/c unit requires a new compressor; this car has been driven constantly for local use and rides smoothly; I have some of the original purchase papers along with all my purchase/maintenance records; CA license plates are original, ETM 690. This car has had extensive restoration and usually gets a "thumbs up" sign every time it goes out on the road. Serious buyers only.
No trades please!

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
The Ford Thunderbird has gone through many iterations during its design and market focus.
After a visit to Europe in the early 1950s, Henry Ford II decided he wanted to build a two-seat, convertible sports car for the American public.
