    “Runs and drives very well. Rust throughout but everything looks to be here for a restoration or to be enjoyed as is.”
    Our car started out life in Briar Brown Metallic - a dark root beer type color much more appropriate and befitting to the car than the gold that a previous owner chose. The interior looks to be complete and potentially original to the car except for the gold shag carpet but we are unsure what came with the car originally. Mechanically, the car runs and drives very well. We've rebuilt the carburetor, master cylinder and brake booster. Replaced the fuel fill hose and cleaned out the gas tank along with replacing the wheel cylinders and hoses on all four corners. And of course, we've replaced the battery. The car has a Mallory Magneto distributor and an electric lift pump. We tested all of the running lights and they work, as do all of the power windows. We do know that the exhaust and tires need replaced at some point. Whether you plan to enjoy the car as is, or pull it apart for a complete restoration, this car is very complete so your parts list should be minimal. Please send us a message if you'd like to see the car in person!

    Aside from what - new body and frame needed?

    Also what is the black tube running in front of the radiator top support?

    Reminds me of something that came back up after having split pea soup.

    Yes a hood prop rod was my thought as well. The hood looks like it is struggling to stay open and that color??? Interesting to say the least. Other than the sheet metal screws holding the vin plate on that carpet sure puts finishing touches on this exemplary example. Somebody sure went to town on the carpet.

    I think this was repainted and carpeted in the 1970's with some left over shag rug material. I have a friend who commissioned a repaint of a T-Bird in the 1970's that came back with an unusual butterscotch like color. I recall many cars from that time period with pea soup green paint over avocado green interiors or weird gold over p..p brown interiors.
