Anyone want a 1960 Thunderbird Convertible?

Recommended Posts

I'm going over one owned by the guy that owns the Healey race cars getting it ready to be sold.

The car is red with a white top and red/white interior.

Decent driver quality.

I'll post pics at some point.

I'm kind of over the old car thing for the moment...

Now if it were a vintage Alfa GTV, or a Ford Lotus Cortina....yeah....

But it is a sweet looking car, you posted pics before.

It's got one major thing going for it; it ain't white. Seems 75% of the '58-60s were.

Ford didn't even show a non-white T-bird in print ads all thru '58 & '59, and a bunch of the '60 ads featured white, too.

We had a really nice red one like that running around up here for quite awhile....

But yeah, I've seen a bunch of these in white.

It looks almost like this one:

Except that it has wider whites, chrome Kelsey-Hayes/Thunderbird wire wheels, and a Continental kit.

Once I have it all shined-up, I'll post pics of the actual car.

352 V8

Power windows

Power steering

Power brakes

Power top

Automatic

A/C

Pretty high-optioned for one of these.

what's the market like on these Camino, or haven't you researched it yet?

I've started to, and it's very strange. Prices seem to be erratic.

The owner paid big bucks for this one back in 2007 - but the pricing seems to be down quite a bit now. I found a very nice fully-restored example priced at $35K. So this one will be a below $30k car.

It's decent enough, but still a driver.

My brother had a white w/ red interior '59 coupe..interesting car. I prefer the '61-63 and '64-66 generations.

^ Make a little side cash, perhaps? :smilewide:

Ha!

I wish.

A kid who used to work for me is getting married in early August - he asked me if I could get a vintage car for them to ride in on the day.

I'm going to give it a shot if the car hasn't sold by then.
