This is a very Nice 59 T-bird convertible. It has undergone a slight restoration with many upgrades. The Paint is in excellent shape and shows very little blemishes but the top is showing some age and will need to be repaired or replaced. The interior looks to be in great shape and everything is functioning as it should. The white wall tires give it that period correct flash that many collectors are looking for. The engine as well as the transmission are rebuilt and refurbished but are original to the vehicle. The underside of the car is fairly clean but is showing signs of leaks and wear. With only 64581 original miles and only 500 on the rebuilt drivetrain, this classic t-bird should have many more years of cruising on the open road. These t-bird in todays market are getting harder to find and are slightly increasing in value, that being said I find through extensive research and numerous websites and Dealers, this 1959 Ford Thunderbird has a current fair market value of $22,500.
Complete new engine rebuilt, new brakes, new front end, new interior. This square bird has a NEW padded dash.. With a professional paint job, base coat clear coat in Ford original black color. Looks stunning with the black convertible top, gleaming beautiful black body with original style Red and White interior.
ADDITIONAL EQUIPMENT: Convertible, power top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Windows ,AM Radio, 352 CID / 300 hp fresh professional rebuild less than 500 miles, power convertible top ,four-barrel Edelbrock carburetor. Also, the Second to Fourth Generation Thunderbird convertibles were similar in design to the Lincoln convertible of the time and borrowed from earlier Ford hardtop/convertible designs.
While these Thunderbird models had a true convertible soft top, the top was lowered to stow in the forward trunk area. This design reduced available trunk space when the top was down. The trunk lid was rear-hinged; raised and lowered via hydraulic cylinders during the top raising or lowering cycle. The forward end of the trunk lid contained a
metal plate that extended upward to cover the area that the top is stowed in. With the top down and the trunk lid lowered, there is no sight of the soft top.
Prices fluctuate depending upon overall cosmetic appearance and condition, originality, the mechanical history and performance, recorded mileage, configuration of power train, options and accessories.
