Restored Dusk Rose Thunderbird Convertible 312ci V8 Automatic Porthole Top ///
Herded from California to Florida around 1995, this contoured Ford was located by its current owner in the summer of 2001. The idea was to find an authentic Dusk Rose Thunderbird that he could ground-up restore for his wife. However, upon seeing the car, at that point a 97K-mile driver that had been maintained as needed, the owner decided a ground-up restoration simply wasn't warranted. So, the convertible's curvaceous sheetmetal was massaged back to life during detailed, body-on restoration. That solid façade, restored in every way except being separated from its chassis, was carefully re-sprayed in correct Dusk Rose 2-stage and fully dressed in professionally re-chromed ornamentation. And today, this T-Bird rolls as one impressive, delightfully retro classic! Tilt the hood and you'll find 312 cubic inches of dressed Thunderbird power! Behind that mill, a correct Ford-O-Matic 3-speed twists an open differential and sporty, 3.10 gears. That drivetrain hangs in a sturdy, road-ready X-frame that's founded on a fully restored double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension. At the corners of the car, power-assisted drum brakes complement good handling characteristics with solid and confident stops. Those handling characteristics are easily explored through factory power steering. And power meets the pavement through attractive chrome wires, which spin 205/75R14 Firestone Supreme whitewalls. Between the doors, a correct White cockpit frames a stylish dash that's finished with a modern, direct-fit radio. A petite chrome shifter floats in front of a broad bench seat. And the driver spins a classy, teal-laced steering wheel. A highly desirable drop-top that wraps well-maintained restoration around a storied V8 and a smooth, 3-speed transmission, this national award-winning T-Bird offers a little something for everyone.
