Lanny, the last owner, passed away in January 2017 and the family is selling their father's car. Lanny restored this beautiful '58 T-Bird to its full glory and retained all the original documents and manuals from the car's very first owner. Lanny was the second owner and had the car for over two decades before he passed away. The car won several awards at various car shows and cruise-ins and is in fabulous condition. The engine is a V-8 352/300 HP. If you have restored a car then you know the thousands of dollars required to invest in body work, paint, restoration, and mechanical work. This car is show quality and doesn't require any of the work mentioned above.
As of March 2, 2018 NADA.com lists the retail price for this car at $21,600 for average condition and $35,160 for High Condition. This car is definitely in excellent condition as noted by the numerous awards it has received. Nada defines high condition vehicles as those who have been completely restored or well-maintained originals showing minimal wear. The exterior paint, trim and mechanics do not need reconditioning and the interior is in excellent condition. Therfore, you will be purchasing a vehicle at over $10,000 below current market value.
Purchase will be completed through wire-to-wire bank transfer due to the number of scams using Paypal and Cashiers Checks and the successful buyer will be responsible for shipping/transport costs.
