So I finished my fathers 1960 Thunderbird and returned it to him in August. He has had this car in his garage since 1965. After many unsuccessful attempts to get him interested in finishing the car I brought it from Ohio to North Carolina in February. It got a rebuilt engine, yes it is still a 352, scarebird disc brakes up front, alternator, driver side power seat bracket from 2014 dodge charger, headliner, carpet and a bunch of other stuff. I wish to thank you all for the help, knowledge, advice,pictures, pictures and pictures. So if you see this car in North east Ohio say hello, my father is loving the attention.

Tim she looks very regal and I am sure your father will enjoy the cruisin. You did a good thing that will be remembered for years to come.
