Gateway Classic Cars of Indianapolis is proud to feature this
extremely rare 1959 Ford Thunderbird J-code! What makes this
Thunderbird so rare is the optional upgrade to the J-Code Special
V8 engine that was only available in 1959 and 1960. In 1959 1,168
J-code Thunderbirds were produced out of the 1,450,953 vehicles
that Ford produced that year. The true scope of rareness becomes
glaringly apparent! A needle in the haystack of survivor cars and
this one is a one family-owned car!An exclusive in Ford achievement
and design was the intricate power operated convertible top. The
rear-hinged trunk area automatically opens with the push of a
button to accept the folding vinyl top and then retracts to a close
concealing the top under the rear deck panel. The rare engine
package is the very limited 430 cubic inch motor with a whopping
350 horsepower! Painted in the elegant Champagne with lipstick red
interior, this rare J-code thunderbird was purchased new by the
current owner's father who had kept it stowed away until his
passing, in which it was inherited and taken great care of. It
underwent a restoration and there are receipts and a photo album of
pictures documenting the restoration as well as a spreadsheet of
all the money accounted for the restoration. If you're a serious
Thunderbird collector, this one is needed to complete the
collection! Options on this 1959 Ford Thunderbird include - AM/FM
Radio, Convertible Auto Top, Power Steering, Power Seats, Power
Windows, Power Mirrors, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, White Walls
