This 1956 T-BIRD is a car that I as a young man growing up used to service when I worked at a service station, the only difference then was it was the color that we called Pea Green. The second owner is a person that I knew, the third person that owned it was a boss of mine, who never drove it. The forth owner is my wife who has put less than 500 miles on it. The mileage of 44,285 is original. The car has been totally restored, rebuilt motor, trans, rear end, new radiator, starter, carb, brakes, new suspension, all running gear. New radial tires and the spare on the continental kit is new but original size. The motor is a 312 cu. in., Ford original trans, but rebuilt, it has power windows, power seat, with a telescoping steering column, power brakes and power steering. The sheet metal on the car is all excellent, bumpers have all been re chromed. It has Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels (5). Windshield has been replaced. Has an AM/FM 6 stacked CD player, but we do have the original radio.
I have had the car appraised & the appraised value is $65,000.

When it comes to vintage American motorcycles, there’s not much cooler than a full-fendered 1947 Indian Chief attached to a full-fendered Indian sidecar. The Pick of the Day is a “Sidecar Chief” in apparently immaculate condition, with matching numbers and coming out of long-term ownership by a committed rider who “sourced and loved and restored […]
