1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible 390ci V8 Engine


Description


Please see the video along with the listing, as the car is shown in detail. The car wears an older repaint in the correct Candy Apple Red and paint does show its age in a few areas. There is paint flaking along the rockers, as well as light spiderwebbing in the finish on the hood. Paint looks great from ten feet, but upon close inspection does look a little bit tired. Powered black convertible top is in excellent shape, free of any damage, and functions as it should. Glass and light lenses are all clear and crack-free. Body is quite dry considering the lifelong Chicago history, but there are some small bubbles under the paint at the rearmost point of the rocker panels. These bubbles are not bursting or cracking through, but they are visible under the paint. Doors open and close nice and smoothly, and the panel fitment is good. Polished trim is excellent, with only the most minor signs of age. Door handles do show a little bit of pitting, but body trim is all very nice.
Red carpeting is excellent throughout, no discoloring or fraying. Gauges are functional with the exception of the fuel gauge. Gauge cluster shows some age, gauge faces look a bit tired. Odometer reading of 72,375 is actual chassis mileage, though the original engine was replaced in 1993 with a remanufactured unit (correct 390ci V8). Radio is functional. Blower motor is functional. Dash lights are functional. Power windows are not currently functional, unfortunately. Air conditioning has been removed and the compressor will come in a box with the car. Powered convertible top is functional. Dash top is free of any cracks or damage. Interior chrome is very nice.
The car appears to retain all of its original metal, and there is a receipt from the car having been undercoated following a major mechanical overhaul in 1993. No active leaks, nice and dry underneath. The car runs and drives very well. Really the only on-road tendency to be aware of is that the steering wheel isn't entirely straight, meaning that when cruising at speed in a straight line the steering wheel is slightly turned.
