Description

Lot #272 - This stunning, arrow-straight, matching numbers T-Bird possesses all its original sheet metal and is finished in gorgeous Lipstick Red which compliments the lavish red interior. This previously celebrity owned Bird is powered by a completely rebuilt 312cid V8. It was purchased December 23, 1996 by Jon Bon Jovi as a gift for songwriter Desmond Child. All paperwork is provided to prove this celebrity sale. The Miami Herald newspaper published an article on January 6, 1997 remarking how this T-Bird was delivered to Childs' home on Christmas Eve, covered with a bow and a huge Merry Christmas sign. Some photographs available of the car's restoration.
