Sunroof Junker on Ebay
 
See:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ford-Thunder...m=262458113584

which shows a very poor car located in Michigan. Lots of rust claim the motor does not turn over.

But . . . it may have the entire sunroof assembly.

Seller did not provide VIN.

John I like the dealers note you are bidding on what you see in the pixs. You would need to sink a lot of $$$$ into that restoration:rolleyes: even though 60 sunroof...

I was thinking more that it would provide some valuable parts for a member who wants a sunroof or has an incomplete one.

I suspect the body is so bad that the work needed would far exceed the potential value of the car.

We should send Simplyconnected on a scouting trip! :)

I noticed the dealer has a sign on the building referring to '58-'60 Thunderbirds. Their website indicates (at the bottom) they have a side business named Thunderbird Crazy specializing in Squarebird parts. "Possible Largest used Square-Bird parts Collection in the World!!"

Anyone familiar with them?

I thought I knew all the Thunderbird dealers around and I've never heard of them. Maybe Carl Heller knows who they are.

This is the man who purchased all of T-Bird Ted's parts at the auction several years ago. He claims to be a Thunderbird dealer but this is the first indication I have seen of that. He does not return calls so often that I have stopped calling him.. I have never seen any indication that he is actually selling parts even tho he claims to be 'possibly the world's largest' Has anyone on this site ever had contact with him?

I found an email address on the web site. I sent an email to it for the heck of it, looking for some steering parts.

I'll post something should I get a response.

John, this T-bird place is just west of Flint. It's about an hour and a half ride for me.

Let me know when you want me to pay them a visit because for you, I would gladly make this road trip.

Have your girls been to the Dairy Queen yet? - Dave

hi Dave

Just pulling your leg . . .have not forgotten that Michigan is about the size of New England.

The girls have been on a couple of DQ trips recently as it has been around 90 here.

I just spoke with Emm, at Thunderbird Crazy. I introduced myself and told her about our Forum. She said that she needed to put me in contact with Nick Stoddard, the owners son, but he was in a meeting. I left my name and number and asked that he call me. As soon as I get more details about their parts availability, I will let you know.
