Description for Ford Thunderbird 1965

Cars like this explain why it was so exciting for the new models to come out in my youth. Graceful and stunning 1965 Ford Thunderbird. Good honest car. restore it and just take it out and have people excited about it as is. Just had it completely gone over at a shop that works on classic cars. They put a new Holly carb on the 390 and it runs strong. compression and all systems except AC check out. Did not have AC converted. New tires. brakes done. all lines checked and replaced if any possible need. I have two other projects going with a 442 and Lemans convertible so this really needs to find someone to love it as my attention needs to be more focused. Pictures include sheet from Duffy collector cars which sold it in 1993 to a Massachusetts Collector. when he was incapacitated with age his cars were being sold to help pay for his care and I just could not pass it up. Sheet has the details on the car so no need to repeat it all here. Car can be seen and driven in South Windsor CT. It is up for local sale so auction may end early as it will not last long as this affordable an entry into being the center of attention at your local cruise-in. Trunk in great shape. Engine in great shape. Roughest part of interior is hand grip on driver's door which is cracked and shows its age. It looks like new carpet was put in at Duffy's but otherwise interior has not been restored. Original radio there but not working. Had all the systems checked but elected not to upgrade the AC to modern charging chemicals. Has great opening vent windows. why did they ever do away with these. Love them. Arrange your own pick up and shipping. $500 due within 48 hours. balance before car leaves. Thanks for looking.
