Lot #1653 - The new Thunderbirds marked the first challenge to Corvettes and the success of the new sports car proved Ford to be quite a formidable competitor. This is an incredibly honest and correct example, displaying a nice restoration by a marquee expert that has been recently refreshed. This classic comes documented from new with records, ownership history, and an original invoice. Acquired from the long-term owner of 30 years, this very easy driving T-bird began life as a promotional vehicle for the Keller Brothers Motor Company. Subsequently, the car was passed to two very discerning caretakers, all the while accumulating records since new. An original soft top only car, this Thunderbird also comes equipped with the desirable manual transmission, correct 292cid engine with a 410cfm T-Bird Holley carburetor, factory dress-kit, power steering, radio and heater. Proper rubber stampings are displayed in their proper locations and all equipment and auxiliaries are correctly presented. The documentation that accompanies this car is as exciting as it is impressive. A file folder containing almost three decades of ownership, history, and service records accompanies the sale. Included are an original invoice, letters, receipts, post cards, and much more. This car received an exacting restoration a few years ago and was just recently refreshed. It is ready to be driven and shown.
