Better yet is this baby bird's condition ! Concours restored to an incredibly high standard over 20 years ago, this car is simply rolling jewlery. Its level of restoration is indeed over the top, but highly impressive. The quality of the car and restoration have clearly stood the test of time, the toughest test for any restoration! There is not an area on this car that is not immpecably detailed and simply outstanding. Further testament to the cars quality is the fact that it is a Classic Thunderbird International National Concours champion.
If there is such a thing as a #1 car, this is it! With just 9 miles on the odometer since its restoration , it is as fresh as they come and ready to win more trophies or be driven and enjoyed. Just in from a 20+ year stay in the hands of one the most fastidious collectors in the world , this car will flat out knock your socks off!
True quality, and truly "One of the Best!"
