Very clean low mileage Thunderbird. I would drive this car all day long. I get the low mileage, well cared for, original paint and all, but IMO Ford sold a lot of these cars and this hurts value of them. You can almost shop for the color you want when looking to purchase one of these T-Birds.

I agree with losing the cheapo wire wheel covers...  Are they from K-Mart?  I can never understand why people will invest tons of time/energy/money then skimp out on the hubcaps/wheel covers.  Maybe by then they (or the holder of the checkbook!) gets tired of spending money on the car.

Agree, actually for what he wants you can actually look at a lot of decent 55-57 Tbirds, generally a bit more desirable if you can live with 2 seats.

I agree:  This looks like a nice car, and being popular,

they have been saved, restored, and cherished, so

today they are readily available.  But so many of them

are black or white, like this one.

 

With all the colors available, you'd think there would

be a wide range of colors on the market.  I wonder what

the original production figures were for each paint choice.
