  1. For sale 1955 Thunderbird project. The original frame has a little rot on the passenger side where the frame turns up to go over the rear end. Also included in sale is a 1956 frame to go with the car. The car is mostly complete. Needs some body work and an interior. Drivers rear quarter repair is started, needs repair to rocker panels and both front fenders near the doors. Also needs work at windshield base. Have original seat and also a set of bucket seats from a 1965 Thunderbird. Currently a 1981 302 and automatic transmission is installed. I modified a tilt steering column from 1981 Thunder
  2. I have sold my 1988 Reatta but I still have some parts. Original tape player with bezel ( don't know if it works) - $20 Used headlight switch from a salvage yard car - $40 Used wiper switch from a salvage yard car - $40 A good original Intermediate parking brake cable - $30 A good (lower) transmission cooling line - $20 A service manual and parts book. - $100 will sell all for $200 but you pay packing / shipping I also have a tan steering column if someone want parts from it because I think shipping the whole column could be costly.
  3. Sorry, I've already sold the radio module. I still have these other items and will sell them very reasonably, but you pay packing / shipping; Original tape player with bezel ( don't know if it works) - $20 Used headlight switch from a salvage yard car - $40 Used wiper switch from a salvage yard car - $40 A good original Intermediate parking brake cable - $30 A good (lower) transmission cooling line - $20 A service manual and parts book. - $100 will sell all for $200 but you pay packing / shipping I also have a tan steering column if someone want p
  4. You can check with Thunderbird clubs. I know a couple people who had one for sale, here in the northeast, within the last few months.
  5. SO... I sold my 1988 Reatta to CarMax because I could not find any buyers and I did not want to put a perfectly good car into a salvage yard. I would rather have sold it to someone for parts if they chose not to use it as a daily driver. CarMax, of course, gave me a mere pittance for the running, registered, roadworthy car. My question is... Does anyone know what CarMax does with these vehicles that they get for practically nothing?
  6. Sold my car and I no longer have it. I do have some spare parts left and a set of manuals if someone wants to buy. I have: original tape player with bezel (I don't know if it works), ECM (good), Radio module (good) (from under the console), used headlight switch and a wiper switch (removed from a car at a salvage yard and never tested), A good original intermediate brake cable, a good transmission (lower) cooling line.
  7. Ron, You know I've used the ROJ and I even submitted a couple repair procedures. You say that for some reason people stopped buying through the Retta store. The reason I stopped was because the Reatta store no longer had a link to Amazon to help defray your costs. When I tried to purchase there last time it didn't work. So I just went about buying through Amazon directly. Heck, if you have the link set up again I would continue to buy through the Reatta store even though I may no longer have my Reatta.
  8. The AC compressor leaks right at the center shaft behind the clutch. Needs a new compressor. I also have spare parts and a set of manuals in the trunk if the car goes to someone on this site. You could empty the trunk and make a little addition to your parts bin. I know I wrote that I could drive / deliver the car 500 miles or more from here. I have recently developed a health issue that might impede me trying to get all the way to Wisconsin at this time.
  9. So, It appears that no one wants to purchase this car that is easily a great value at $1,000 for a dependable car. Is anyone willing to make an offer of some sort?
  10. The whirring or buzzing sound is most likely the brake motor running. The accumulator is just a hydraulic reservoir that gets pressurized when the brake motor / pump runs. Which brake light is on. The red brake light or the yellow ABS light? it does make a difference. For example if the yellow light is on it just means the ABS is not working right but you will still have normal braking. If the red light is on it is a "DANGER" warning and the car should not be driven until it is fixed.
  11. Yesterday while I was detailing my car I noticed a crack, in that spot on the passenger side, that I have never seen before.
  12. Mine were also pretty rusted in. I was able to get one out. I drilled out the other and went to the local hardware store to purchase hex head bolts with the same thread and a small hex. I also ran a metric tap through the threaded holes first when I was putting it back together.
  13. This Reatta is in pretty decent shape. Running, driving, registered , insured and inspected. Reasons for selling; I have a project car that requires all my attention and funding. I have driven this car less than 500 miles in the last few years and it should be driven more. It's a good dependable car but needs a new air compressor for the A/C (car has been converted to R134A Freon). I will consider driving the car some distance (500 miles from Boston, MA - maybe more) to a serious buyer for delivery. 1988 Reatta coupe for sale Mileage:_189,000__ Considered Correct? (Y/N)
  14. There were seven of us there with our Reatta's and yes it was a beautiful day.
