Description for Ford Thunderbird 1980

1980 Ford Thunderbird


VINTAGE T-BIRD, 56k miles

1980 ford thunderbird, 4.2 liter V-8, 3 speed auto. Just inspected, 56,000 original documented miles. This car was placed in storage 10 years ago and brought back out recently to be prepared for the road.The entire fuel system was overhauled with: new gas tank, fuel pump and hoses, carburetor rebuilt. New starter installed, new muffler and tailpipe. Front struts and rear shocks were replaced just before the car went into storage. oil and filter was changed. Everything functions on the car including the a/c which is still ice cold. Interior is in good condition with no major issues, exterior is in solid shape with blemishes that are to be expected from original 40 year old paint. Partial vinyl top has some deterioration. Overall the car is a true time capsule that can be driven anywhere. They only made this style of T-Bird for 3 years and finding one in this condition with only 56,000 miles makes this one even more rare. Car is located in Bethesda, MD


Update:

Clean title. Just drove the car to Bethesda, MD. Drove great, ice cold air no issues. Just as i was pulling into the parking garage at the Marriott, the transmission started slipping. I didn't want to drive the car home so i left it there and got a rental. Thank you. Andre 718 207-9325

1980 Ford Thunderbird rolling body

This was originally a 4.2L small block V8 car with a C4 automatic transmission. The motor and transmission are gone. Everything engine related, from the radiator to the drive shaft, is gone.
This was a running driving vehicle until January 2016. All the systems were functional at that time, except the clock didn't work, and the rear window defogger indicator light only stayed on, while the momentary switch was held in the on position..
The miles showing are 84,160. The explanation for the miles on the car is, that it was stored for many years during an estate settlement, and it wasn't driven. There is no documentation to verify the miles.
The worst rust on the outside body, is a spot behind the left front wheel, at the edge of the wheel well. There is some rust scale on the driver's door bottom, the front of the driver's floor pan, and the spare tire well/driver's side trunk drop. The trunk drop looks the weakest of the underside rust found.
The carpet under the driver's floor mat is torn away. The radio, horn, and spare tire parts are missing. The hood emblem is broken off.
The dark blue paint is faded away, and there is surface rust on the top body panels.
The vinyl top is intact, and it is dry or weather checked. The top of the driver's quarter panel has a small dent at the top of it. The left rear quarter panel and left door were repainted at some time. They have clear coat peeling at the top of the panels. The tires are dry rotted and are in poor condition.
Additional pictures are available upon request.
This is a non-running, non-driving parts car, missing the drive line and stated parts.

I do think the car will need to be towed.
