1964 ford thunderbird 390 convertible barn stored. For Sale
I am helping a friend reduce his collection of cars who has no internet, I will answer any questions I can, or will find the answer from my friend. Please be patient as sometimes it takes time.
You are looking at a dry barn stored 1964 Ford Thunderbird V8 390 big-block (with the added benefit of having an unleaded petrol conversion)convertible automatic, 66014 miles for re-commissioning.
Finished in glorious Primrose Yellow with Black roof, fitted with the removable rare sport roadster tonneau pack, which means it can be a 2 seat sports roadster or a 4/5 seat convertible, plus rear wheel spats,it also has special boot rack and twin pillar lamps plus original radio.
********** UPDATE *********
This car has not been used on the road for the last 6 years but was started and driven on the owners property regularly up until 2 years ago. Because it has sat for a while the fuel had gone stale and it wouldn't start initially but we have now had it running on a remote can of petrol and the Holley carb has been sent away for an overhaul and refurb, so should be running soon.
It was driven on to the ramp its pictured on to change a leaking water pump and create extra room in the barn and that's where it stayed.The new pump is still in the box unfitted.
The body work is straight with no dents and the paint will polish up to look good,the chrome and bumpers are in great condition also.
We have tested the electric roof and all works fine.
This is a complete car with all hubcaps and trim, the benefit of viewing this car is it's sitting on a ramp for underneath inspection!!
After lots of questions about the underside we have inspected it and taken pictures, it has had previous local repairs to the front floors both sides before my friend bought the car and probably carried out in the states,but it is in fairly good condition for a 55 year old car. There is a 6" square patch of rust on the boot floor that will need addressing.
The V5c is present and is registered as historic vehicle so is tax and mot exempt.
I HAVE LOTS MORES PICTURES IF REQUESTED.
It will need most things checking or overhauling, my friend has owned this car for over 25 years, most MOT's are present during his ownership to prove mileage.
In the 25 years of ownership this car has been garaged continually and only used to go to shows on good weather days and only got wet when washed!, never exposed to winter salty roads which has kept it well preserved.
You will need to collect this car on a trailer or recovery truck.
