Regretfully, I am selling my stunning looking Raven black T-Bird, looks superb with its contrasting cream roof, and black leather upholstery, even has the genuine Ford rubber mats that I managed to find stateside brand new OEM !!
Considering its 58 year old, the interior has stood the test of time, and all the metalwork is unmarked, and the black paint polishes up really well, all the original chromework is present.
The original clock may be missing as someone has put a radar disc in its place, however it doesn’t bother me, and actually looks quite cool. keeping with the car, as the car is very space age. I suppose if it bothered you, you could drop on one on Ebay.com.
Unbelievably the car only has 80,000 miles, and runs brilliantly with smooth tickover, I have maintained the car whenever it has needed maintenance, when I purchased the car I had a specialist recommission the car and I had a new Holley 600 carb fitted, while it was there the engine was compression tested and everything was found to be OK.
The car was serviced with all new ignition parts like plug leads, new plugs, dizzy cap, new coil, we fitted new starter motor, upgraded the alternator and fitted a new battery.
The tyres looked a little perished, so four good quality new tyres were fitted all round, while the wheels were off the brakes were replaced with new items and the axle bearings were also replaced along with all the fluids.
To get the best out of that lovely V8 the rear mufflers were replaced, I didn’t want it to be in your face, I just wanted to have that American V8 rumble, which they do and everytime I’m in the car it brings a smile to my face.
When the car was put through its MOT it flew through with absolutely no advisories, obviously the car is now MOT exempt (thank you DVLA)
I would drive this car anywhere, as I have spared no expense to achieve a reliable summer cruiser.
Outside of the car the car is very tidy with its previously mentioned Raven black and cream paintwork, the chrome is also presentable and polishes up well, some of the exterior chromework trim is new, bombsight and antenna.
Being 58 years old, there are age related marks like chips and the odd blemish, but show me a 58 year old unrestored car that hasn’t.
If you want a car that you can rely on, turns heads when cruising down the street and with a little bit more TLC will win you trophies at the odd show or two, you’re looking at it.
You could just enjoy it how it is, I do.
To be fair, I had every intention of returning this gorgeous looking car to its former glory, and taking my time over sourcing the correct parts needed to make a stunning car, an outstanding car, but we have decided to make a life changing decision and thus needs to be sold.
I will be very sad to see her sold, but she will make her next owner very happy Im sure.
Do you want a stunning , head turner, that someone has spent time and money on to make reliable so she can be enjoyed, that just needs that little bit more to make an appreciating asset appreciate more ?
