Lot #705 - This Bird has been owned by our family for the past 8 years. It was purchased from a family in San Antonio, Texas. The original goal was to resell the car immediately, but after the original inspection we decided to clean up a few things on her. One thing led to another and 8 years later we ended up with a frame-off restored baby Bird. This car is in original restored condition wearing its factory color Snowshoe White with turquoise and white interior. The car came from the factory with options including an automatic transmission, power windows, seats and steering. Town & Country radio, hardtop, fender skirts and an engine dress up kit. We decided to convert the electrical system from 6-volt to a 12-volt system which allowed us to add air conditioning. She is also sporting Kelsey Hayes type wire wheels and wide white wall tires.
