LOT 156: Ford Thunderbird 1961
Estimated Value : £17,000 – £20,000
This first year of production “Cigar Bird” has just undergone a major overhaul. Chosen in the States for its rust free condition and its mechanical prowess. Once here the vendor spent the better part of 10 thousand pounds having the body professionally painted and all exterior chrome mouldings replaced along with the locks. The interior was completely “bespoke” retrimmed, no vinyl here just leather throughout, door cards, dash board the lot. New carpets were fitted and to finish the look a set of multi spoke chrome wheels were bolted on.
Now freshly MOT’d and will be supplied with an age related UK registration, this near show quality car will make its new owner very very proud.
Note: The vendor has told us that the only poor chrome on the car was the rear bumper so this is currently in the process of being re-chromed.
