There’s no rust underneath, new shocks and complete rebuilt front suspension.
The 428 has a C-6 transmission which this car does and all the other codes match up - Body 76A is a convertible; Color X is Vintage Burgundy; Axel 1 is 3.00:1; Transmission 4 is C-6; Trim Color 53 Burgundy all original interior; Build Date 24 E is May 24th 1966 so it was a late production car.

For 1966 the larger four-barrel 428-cubic-inch (7.0 L) V-8 became optional, rated at 345 gross horsepower (257.4 kW) and providing a notable improvement in 0-60 acceleration (to about 9 seconds).
"Though the basic body shell remained intact, the 1966 Thunderbird was extensively restyled with a new, tight egg-crate pattern grille, and the two taillights were now connected into one massive piece of plastic. Generally speaking, it was the best-looking of fourth-generation T-Birds. It was a '66 Thunderbird convertible that Thelma and Louise drove off a cliff into oblivion in the film that wore their names as the title."
There were a total of 5,049 convertibles built.
The reason for selling is that I'm looking for a different "classic car" experience. The Thunderbird has been fun to own but with only limited garage space having more than one hobby car at a time is a problem. I will consider a classic car trade and arrange shipping worldwide.
