Here we have mostly-restored 1971 Ford Thunderbird, 2-dr landau-style coupe, rust-free with custom dark green metallic paint job and new original-style vinyl top. Runs strong with its 429-V8 sporting the coveted Dove-6 heads. Really hugs the road with new tires shocks springs front-end. All-in-all fine example of an early '70s "personal luxury car".I purchased this car about 2,000 miles ago in 2012 from chap near Los Angeles (who either had driven it out from Minnesota or who had bought it from someone there, forget which).I have all receipts from the previous owner and everything since (most work done by my trusty mechanic Bob Hughes in El Cajon). Also I'll toss in a full set of manuals including large fold-out set of wiring diagrams.The receipts will show have almost $14,000 into this car in the four years I've had it (oh well, didn't get into this hobby to get rich...).Here are the major things I've done in the years I've had it:-- rebuilt the Dove-6 heads-- rewired the underhood harness using the kit from famed automotive electrical expert Mark Hamilton (madelectrical.com). Added voltmeter to replace the ammeter had to disconnect.-- replaced entire cooling system (and added coolant overflow tank and coolant filter)-- replaced dual exhaust system-- new master cylinder brake shoes fluid flush-- new alternator w/ internal regulator-- new Costco battery (in 2014). Maintained by Save-a-Battery maintenance/charger, which I'll include.-- rebuilt carburetor-- new shocks, springs, and front-end parts-- electronic ignition upgrade (actually by previous owner)-- new Cooper white wall tires (actually by previous owner just prior to selling it).-- new ignition switch and lock cylinder. As you might expect there are few issues with car of this vintage, which hadn't gotten around to:-- passenger door window motor needs replaced. -- wipers inoperable (probably wiper motor... I'll get that taken care of if it concerns you).-- horn disabled (relay stuck on -- couldn't locate so just disconnected horn button in steering wheel. Quieter that way... ;) ) -- AC compressor needs replaced-- heater core bypassed-- antenna removed (was trying to find motorized version).-- stereo radio and clock both inoperable. But they look great!-- padded dash has cracks. One small hole in headliner near edge.-- trunk lock cover has been removed -- now in glove box awaiting new spring-- roof-rail weather-strip works okay but it's not the original style.-- headlight switch knob is loose. I'll try to get that fixed (or toss in pair of pliers... ) Cosmetically, the paint, chrome, and vinyl top are excellent. Other than the above issues, it's really not that far away from show car.
