1966 THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE "Q" CODE PROJECT

THE 1966 THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLES ARE BECOMING QUITE RARE (ESPECIALLY AS THEY ONLY PRODUCED AROUND 5,000) .  THIS APPEARS TO BE A "FULLY APPOINTED" BIRD WITH A/C, ELECTRIC WINDOWS & 6-WAY SEATS , RECLINING PASSENGER SEAT, DELUXE HUB CAPS, FENDER SKIRTS, STEERING & BRAKES, "Q" CODE, FRONT DISC BRAKES.

RARER YET ARE THE "Q" CODE 428 C.I. ENGINES.  THIS "Q" CODE 1966 THUNDERBIRD CONV. WAS PURCHASED 25 YEARS AGO AND THE BUYER ONLY DROVE ABOUT ONE YEAR THEN STARTED TO TAKE IT APART FOR RESTORATION.  HE HAD THE ENGINE REBUILT AND REINSTALLED BUT NEVER DROVE IT.  HE KEPT REMOVING PARTS FROM THE VEHICLE AND PUT THE PARTS THAT WOULD FIT INTO LARGE PLASTIC BOXES (SEE PHOTOS) WHERE THEY WOULDN'T BECOME LOST.  WHEN HE REACHED THE POINT YOU SEE HERE IN PHOTOS, HE FOUND OTHER TYPES OF VEHICLES TO DRIVE AND ENJOY AND THIS THUNDERBIRD REMAINED IN A CORNER OF HIS GARAGE FOR AT LEAST 23 YEARS.  IT WILL NEED A TOTAL RESTORATION.  TOP ASSEMBLY, GRILL, HARD PARTS ARE IN TRUNK.  BUMPERS AND "FILLERS" ARE ON THE GROUND BEHIND THE CAR.  APPEARS TO ALL BE THERE HOWEVER SOME PARTS COULD BE MISSING.  GREAT THING ABOUT 1966 T-BIRDS, ALMOST EVERYTHING IS AVAILABLE FOR THEM THRU THE THUNDERBIRD SUPPLY COMPANIES.

HOWEVER MUCH OF THE WORK IS DONE IN THE (TAKING APART ) PROCESS.  ALL OF THIS CAN BE YOURS FOR ONLY $9,966.  AS YOU PROBABLY KNOW, A "Q" CODE 428 T-BIRDS ARE RARE AND SELLING IN THE $30'S & $40'S WHEN RESTORED.  THIS IS A RESTORATION PROJECT THAT WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN VALUE EACH YEAR. HAS A CLEAR TEXAS TITLE.
