1969 Ford Thunderbird

This is our 1969 Ford Thunderbird 429, it is the extremely rare Suicide door model with the original factory 429. It has been stored for many years and could use a restoration. Factory color was originally a metallic green, it was repainted burgundy many years ago and is very faded now. There are some cosmetic flaws due to the vinyl top that we recently removed and discovered several spots that now need rust repair (see pics). There is also repair needed on the trunk lid and rear cowl (see pics). Floors, trunk and chassis are all solid and the rest of the body is very straight and rust free. There are small "dings" on the corner trims. I have more detailed pictures available of the floors and chassis taken on the rack, eBay only allows the 24 I have posted, so please message me if you would like to see them or any specific pics.
Interior is all original with some sun wear on top of rear seats, 4 inch seam split on drivers seat, the dash pad has 2 cracks. All glass is in good shape but driver side window is off the track but in good condition. Doors, hood and trunk all open and shut nice and firm.
Mechanically the factory 429 engine sounds great but carburetor seems to be overloading now so its not really feasible to drive it around until the carburetor is replaced or rebuilt. It was driven into storage many years ago and everything was fine at the time. Pics show no air cleaner, I am trying to locate it, but for now it does not have it. Tires are about 75% tread and wrapped around really nice aluminum wheels.I have in hand the clean and clear California title/pink slip.

As you can tell from my 100% perfect feedback I am honest and accurate in all of my listings and I want every buyer to know exactly what they are getting and be pleased with their purchase. I have been in the automotive industry all my life and I do know what I am looking at, I also know that others may see things differently and realize the possibility of overlooking something when describing a vehicle, so communication is very important!
