Thanks to a friend who was able to go haul my 1960 Thunderbird, I now have it at my house.

Upon closer inspection, the body is maybe "average". It needs a lot of work to get it to paint stage. Just a lot of dings and it looks like someone took an angle grinder to it in places for some reason!

It did come with almost all the chrome trim though.

I'm going this weekend to pickup a 352 engine to throw in it and hopefully it will be driveable.

The interior soft trim is pretty much all gone except for the seats (which will need redone).

I Googled some door panels and the price totally shocked me. Does anyone have a lead on some used ones? I do have the armrests and such already....I'm just missing the panels.

I'm still at the "assessing" and drawing up the whiteboard stage of things.

I'm awaiting delivery of my shop manual this week, so once that arrives I can really get my teeth into this project!

Sadly, it appears I can't post photos yet (bc I'm a newbie?). But once that feature is activated I'll post some up.

Hi Derrick, the reason why you cannot post pix on this Forum is explained to every new member when I welcome them to the Forum. The explanation can be found in my Post #1 in the Welcome New Members Forum, when I welcomed you. Here is the link to that. Read that, please and then you can determine how you want to go about posting pix. We certainly would like to see them! I see you are assessing the car and what it needs. Post away in the Technical Forum for 1958-1960 Squarebirds and they can help you troubleshoot it.
