Description:

When Ford started putting four seats in the Thunderbird, sales skyrocketed. In addition, it made possible all kinds of wondrous things, like a massive 430 cubic inch V8 and a trick power top that stows itself under the rear deck, thanks to technology borrowed from the ill-fated retractable. This beautiful 1959 Thunderbird is one of only 1168 built in 1959 with a J-code engine, and has been given a ground-up professional restoration. I don''t have to point out how awesome black on red looks, but when you see this Thunderbird, it''ll truly sink in. Just look at the mirror finish on the quarter panels, the razor-sharp tail fins, and the sharp definition of the headlight buckets and hood. With that much acreage to straighten, sand, paint, and polish, there are surely hundreds of man-hours wrapped up in this car, and the result is simply gorgeous. Starting with a super clean original car certainly helps, but there''s no way around the fact that this car cost cubic dollars to restore. Heck, the chrome alone probably cost as much as a new Buick, and it''s all beautifully done. You''ll delight in the small details, like the gunsight ornaments atop each front fender, the spear on the door, and the jet-inspired taillights. No matter how you look at it, this car is stunning. The red and white interior is finished to show standards, using original patterns and materials throughout. Twin buckets (including a power driver''s seat!) around a center console give the big ''Bird a very sporty feel, enhanced by the cockpit feel of the instrument panel. The gauges are like little works of art with the white and gold faces, and the cool transmission shift indicator wouldn''t look out of place today. The rear seat will technically accommodate three, but it''s really meant for two in simulated buckets that are comfortable enough for a cross-country trip. Overhead, a gorgeous white convertible top, controlled by miles of wires and a dozen relay switches, operates flawlessly. The engine is a rare, matching-numbers J-code 430 cubic inch V8, rated at a stout 350 horsepower. Fully rebuilt and detailed for show, there''s no mistaking it with those white valve covers and air cleaner, which really pop against the satin black engine bay. Every single component was rebuilt, including the engine, transmission, rear end, brakes, carburetor, power steering system, generator, and even the windshield washers, so everything works as it should. Detailing is excellent, and you can see how fresh it is just from the finish on the original cast iron exhaust manifolds. Underneath, it''s OEM all the way, with solid floors finished in satin black, an automatic transmission, and a Ford 9-inch rear out back. Glittering 14-inch wire wheels wear new 215/75/14 whitewall radials so it rides superbly. This car also includes receipts and photos from the restoration, so you can buy with confidence. This may be the nicest ''59 T-Bird in existence. Call today!
