Lot #680 - V8, 312 cubic inch, 225 Horse Power, with automatic transmission. Purchased this car from Amos Minter in March of 2004 as a 30th wedding anniversary gift for my wife. My purchase requirements were simple; #1 rated '56 Bird, rust and accident free, dry climate history, with very good investment potential. I also asked Amos what options would improve this cars appeal value and investment potential, he recommended and installed; Real T-Bird wire wheels instead of hub caps, T-Bird air-conditioning, optima cool radiator, 6 blade fan, shifter lock, alternator upgrades, hidden booster fuel pump. During late '05 and early '06 I had the car mechanically and cosmetically checked spending over $10,000 to freshen the paint, add a new correct Ford battery, neutral safety switch, window whiskers... to make it a one of a kind. Also included with this beauty are a portable hard top storage rack and cover, various manuals, parts cataglog, Amos Minter autographed "Thunderbird Book, an illustrated history of the Ford T-Bird", matching Burtex tote bag, and more are also included.
