It has a beautiful paint job done in beautiful Starmist Blue that still looks excellent after 17 years. In the engine compartment and the under carriage was also painted the same color. The paint was hand rubbed to a smooth as glass finish and looks drop dead gorgeous. The body is straight as an arrow, rust free and is solid as a rock. It also has like new chrome, emblems and rubbers all around it. It's sitting on a beautiful set of Kelsey Hayes chrome wire wheel with a set of brand new tires!
Mechanically, this little T-Bird runs and drives great. The engine compartment is fully detailed to show condition with the factory optional engine dress up kit. It has it's original, fully rebuilt #'s matching 312ci 4V 245hp engine. Everything was rebuilt on the car when it was restored. It is truly a excellent driving car that it very tight and very fun to drive!
