Only 200 of these vehicles were produced and sold by Shay. This is a Shay Motor Company production vehicle out of Battlecreek Michigan. Only 200 chassis were purchased from Ford Motor Company, this one with a 2.3 4 cylinder and a 4-speed transmission. The car has a removable top to make it into a convertible in a matter of minutes by removing 4 thumbscrews and releasing 2 clips. After they purchased the chassis from Ford a fiberglass body was installed and all the 1955 Thunderbird chrome and bumpers were also installed. They were a little ahead of their time with a modern drive train and the classic 1955 Thunderbird look! The 1981 Shay Thunderbird did come from a private collection and has been kept in climate controlled storage. The Shay runs and drives smoothly. Our staff have been over the car and checked all of the mechanicals and they all work as they should. The Shay was taken out for an extensive test drive and the 4 cylinder ran smooth and strong as expected. All of the fenders and panels are solid with very little wear, nicks or other age or wear marks. The Shay has been garage kept for the majority of its life and has only been a fair weather cruiser. Buffed, polished and very well maintained, which shows when you take it for a spin. Please call or email with any questions!
