Lot #989 - This is a stellar example of a rare "E-Bird". The E in the VIN tells you that under the hood is a "Special High Performance" 312cid V8 with dual quads and hotter cam producing 270hp. Not only does this car have the ultra rare powerplant, but it is also equipped with a long list of other factory options that includes hard and soft tops, engine dress-up kit, signal seeking radio, heater, power brakes, power steering, tinted glass, safety package, and back-up lights. It has had only three owners since new and has been very well cared for. It has recently received some cosmetic and mechanical refreshing to bring it back to its dazzling appearance and to ensure worry-free roadability. This included new upholstery, new whitewall tires, and other details as needed. With purchase comes the original factory invoice, a full color restoration guide, a copy of the radio manual, an owner's manual, and vintage Washington plates. This is absolutely one of the best drivers you are likely to come across with excellent power, solid handling and excellent manners that most of these cas simplu don't have no matter how pretty they look. A remarkable example of an extremly rare and collectable Thunderbird.
