    Anders yes you are correct that our 58's will turn 50 this year.That's also a great idea of posting pictures on their birthdays. Our 58 is called Maggie " as I bought it for my wife Marg and she turns 50 on August 12th ( while the wife turns 56 in October ) Let's try something new. Everyone that has a 58 ( this being the 50th year ) respond to the anniversary date. That way we will at least see how many 58's are out there.I have a couple of Ford dealerships here interested in doing a promotion with ours in their showrooms. It will of course be in Nov. Dec. Jan & Feb. during the winter months

          @Frank58: Please put in a Pic of her then ( as you are already late...)
          This thread should be Sticky for at least 3 years...

          @Dan: The name Ruth is a "swinglish" play with words, as a Square in swedish is Ruta, and my grandmas name was Rut ( of course the nicest and kindest in the whole world ), must be Ruth then, as this lady comes from US...

                  Hi Zeppelin!

                  Congratulations on keeping your Grandpa's Tbird in the family! You are a very fortunate young man to have an all original Bird. I hope you will enjoy it for a long time to come. The Build sheet could be anywhere if it is still in the car. It could be stuck up into the springs of the back seat, or the back of the seat. It has been found under the floor carpeting. Also up under the dash. It has been found under the front seats, or up inside the seats, as a recall. It is a matter of taking time to look for it. As for the white smoke, and the oil drops, I will leave that to the more experienced people on here. The white smoke might just be because it has not been run for awhile, maybe... Good luck with it! You must be the envy of your peers! I am not sure I answered you question though. As to where you find the date the car was built, look on your VIN tag which on a '58 I think is on the column where you open your drivers door, like my '59. There you should see the VIN tag. On that tag, one of the things it tells you is the Date. That number, letter combination is the date it was produced. The letter tells you the Month. A=January, B=February, C=March, D=April, E=May, F=June, G=July, H=August, I was not used because it looked to much like 1, J=September, K=October, L=November, M=December. Now you can figure out what day of the month and which month in 1958 your Bird was born!

                      Chris welcome to our site and if I can help you navigate this site a little easier, let me know. There is a wealth of information from our members and guests that are either in thread form or rely posts on most days.
                      If you send me an e-mail ( or hit the reply button on my posts ) with what you need to start off with, I can send you some stat sheets about the 58 that might interest you. For now, on the main page up near the top there are black buttons one that says " search" If you type in say " white smoke" it will search for all thread and posts related to this problem. Good Luck and enter often.

                          1958 birthday?

                          Since new year models debut in September, wouldn't my May 26 be a production in 1957 not '58?
                          Just wondering?

                            No not May 26th 1957. The 1958 T-Birds came out much later than the rest of Ford's 1958 line-up that year....
