Description

Lot #391 - Presented with a fresh nut-and-bolt restoration, this sparkling Thunderbird is one of only 1,499 cars built with the E-code high-performance engine. The legendary engine option is known for its two 4-barrel carbs under a gleaming chrome air cleaner that produced 270hp. This particular car has been upgraded to the "racing kit" that features a 10:1 compression ratio (rather than 9.7:1), which ups the horsepower to 285hp at 5500 rpm. Lift the tilt-forward hood and show off the engine and engine compartment detailing. This E-Bird is ready for cruises and car shows. The gorgeous Flame Red body is accented with a matching porthole hardtop and white soft-top. Inside the car, the matching white interior is complemented by excellent trim, red carpeting, air conditioning and a modern AM/FM radio with cassette. Additional features include sparking Kelsey Hayes chrome wire wheels with wide whitewall tires, power steering, power brakes, Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. Upgrades include an aftermarket AM/FM radio with cassette. The trunk features a proper spare and trunk mat. The paint, chrome and interior are outstanding.
