1969 Ford Thunderbird (RHD) 1 of 10
Some Stats on the car...
1 of 10 Australian delivered (DSO 97 is Australia and New Zealand), believed to be imported for the Ford executives working in Australia during the late 1960's. From what I understand it was imported LHD and converted by Ford Australia into RHD, this is how they did all RHD US cars at that time.
Ford big block 429 (7lt) V8 monster engine, un modified, super smooth, no shakes or rattles, new water pump, ignition, fuel pump, starter, vacuum lines and connectors. Starts first time every time... While cruising you can hardly hear the motor.
Presidential blue is the original colour which was very bland, so when it was repainted (bare metal re-spray) a lot of metallic flakes were added to make it POP...
The original super comfy seats are still in reasonable condition for a 50 year old car, the tilts work perfectly and drivers side is an electric seat.
An awesome feature is the when the drivers door is opened the steering wheel tilts out of the way to make it easier to enter or exit the car.
Super light power steering
Ice cold air conditioning
Original and working 8 track player am with 6x 8 track cassettes, and new Kicker KS speakers (hidden in the original speaker holes)
New rubber seals
New window felts
Factory vacuum boot release
Sequential tail lights and indicators
Spare tire and spare hub caps.
Hidden Reverse camera, bluetooth hands free and GPS
The not so good...
The previous owner decided to restore the car in the late 90's early 00's and decided to weld shut the sunroof :( and recover it with a new Landau white vinyl. The drivers side power window switch can not control the passenger side.
This car is SO nice to drive, it is a true Mr Jekyll and Dr Hide, power and roar when you put the peddle down and super sooth and quiet when you are cruising, no wobbles or rattles... just so nice... Recently I have been using as a daily drive car, that is how reliable it is...
May consider trade/swap of something of interest, happy to add or take cash depending on the value of the trade. (eg hot rod (must be RHD), muscle (must be RHD), boat, let me know what you have...)
