  • Golde Top

    Birders i will soon be resraying my Bird and would like to know that when the sunroof is in the open position what colour are all the seals? . Are the body colour (painted) or black?. This includes the seal that goes all around the sliding panel. Also Alex nice new paint job on the Black Bird i dare you to spray it that colour and go to a T-Bird convention and just stand back and listen to the comments!.

    The seals are all back. They are not painted over. All the seals are available.

    I like the gold top. It would be the focus of any T-Bird show.

          I do have a great sence of humor ~~~ But this time I am really serious. The color combo is neat, attracts attention, and would be a "1-off" ~ It's gotta be a bronzeee-gold, however, just like his picture. I like things that are different. I drove a PINK Lincoln Mark VII for a while, factory one off made special for me. You gotta kick "tush" and beat the drum and make some noise in this world, or you're just an also ran! Not really sure if that color combo would fit the pretty conservative Alexander, but he could grow into it!

            Kevin,

            I am glad to hear that Golde is still in business. I would like to know what they still have available for the roof. I got new the three different seals for the sunroof from Bob's Bird House. I believe they are reproductions.

            I would like to get the white rubber seal that goes around the opening inside the headliner. That has shrunk over the years.

            Do you have a web address for Golde? I could not find anything on an Internet search.

              Do they have paint that would look like gold plating? I would think it would be awfully expensive to actually have the roof polished and plated. Would the Lincoln Medium Gold Metallic used in 1998-99 look right? How was the 50 millionieth Chevrolet painted in 1955? It was all gold with gold plated trim.

                  Alex
                  The Golde company was sold to Arvin Merritor company, now this company is on your side of the big pond and owns companys in europe. I have tried to find web pages from there main site but no luck. I did find Golde main site but the page will not open!!!! . Now iam trying hard to make contact with a young chap whom has bought a 1960 Bird to restore and has joined www.tbirdforum.com for help. We need to get in contact with him as he lives in Frankfort am Main Germany!!. Iam wondering if this Bird is a Golde top as he has stated that this Bird has been in Germany from new. So maybe its first owner may have ordered the car then took it to Golde for a private convertion?. However i will keep trying.
