1965 Ford Thunderbird Special Landau Description:


1965 Ford Thunderbird Special Landau in UNRESTORED ORIGINAL CONDITION

VIN# 5Y87Z144116 -The Special Laundau was made to commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the T-Bird.Only 4500 were made.They all came in the metallic bronze color (Emberglow) and the tan interior and vinyl roof (Parchment)

Car originated in the high desert of Southern California (Palmdale) where it spent about 25 years in a barn/garage.Brought back to life and driven from CA to NY in 2012.I purchased it in 2012 with approx. 92,000 original miles on it.It presently has approx. 102,000 miles on it.I have been using it consistently for the last six years for summer driving errands.

Original 390 Cubic inch engine with Holley 4BBL Carburetor. Air conditioning and vacuum systems not yet repaired but Heater/Defroster works and can be isolated with added hose valve.Very reliable, runs great, starts every time (pump twice then turn key).

Needs cosmetic restoration. Top surfaces of paint are faded and the driver's seat has some slit seams (taped to prevent them from splitting more). Windscreen shelf has a crack. Light surface rust in spots. Vinyl top has uniform alligatoring but no tears. Windscreen has a pebble crack that is about 1 inch around but it has not gotten any worse since I purchased the car. Side vent windows do not operate with hand crank. All rubber on car should be replaced.
