60 Golde Top OD Trans on E-Bay
For you Golde Top Lovers, there's an awsome 60 Golde Top with 352, AC, and Manual OD -- kind of a rare combination I think. Anyway, there are 120 photos to look at. :p

Just thought that I'd let you know. If this doesn't belong here -- please move it.

Item number: 290168938793

Good God, that's perfection!

That ought to be sold to Ford, for their Museum in Dearborn.
Never seen a car that perfect that was 47 years old.
I love it! I'd have to build a concrete garage, heated & air conditioned for that and NEVER ever drive it.

Why would anyone sell it ??

Alexander, you need this !

It is a very nice car, but it needs some work to make it a concours winner. These cars did not come with wire wheels.

Most of the problem on this car is in the engine compartment. It is missing the stock air cleaner. Valve covers in that year said "FORD," not "Thunderbird." The A/C compressor should be a finned flanged-valve York compressor. This is a modern replacement Roto-Lock valve York compressor. The sticker placements in the engine compartment is all wrong. What detracts most in this engine compartment is the modern plastic wire loom wrap seen on the left valve cover.

What's it worth, as is ?

'Ya do realize that it's MY kinda color, yes ?

Alexander 10-13-2007 05:48 PM

Overall the car looks like it is solid rust-free with great chrome and interior. It is worth 20 to 30 K.

It is a Corinthian White car. Why is that your color?

It's Palm Springs Rose !

Scan all the way to the end & view the window sticker & otherpaper documents.
I was recently re-united with "Pinkin" here in N.J.
I have many many pictures.
It's now inthe hnads of the Mark7 club.
It looks a 100% perfect & all original ! I was speechless.
Many pics of it @
(copy & paste is the only way it will work)
Go to September meets. Edison NJ

You are right, it is Palm Springs Rose - color code V.

I assumed it was the usual white. You have a sharp eye.

SandyBoy 10-14-2007 03:31 PM

If there is a pink car or a purple car in my county, I can smell it !

Go look at "Pinkin" ! She looks flawless after 7 owners (counting me). She has been in Fla., Calif, Pa (twice) and New Jersey ! Check out her mileage !! Still low low.

Alexander mentioned the newer AC compressor... this car also has a holly carb. Might be a newer , not original engine. But a beauty she is.

Palms Spring Rose Golde Top
Good morning people. The auction for the 60 Golde Top is over, as it didn't hit the reserve.I was one of the bidders and I laughed at some of the bids going up in a $1.00 increment.
The last bid was $19,101.00 and obviously that wasn't what the seller wanted for this beutiful 60. What do you people think, realistically given the colour, condition and options on this Golde Top, would it be worth. The reason I ask, is I am interested in calling Wind City to see what they want as it has caught my eye. Not to mention that with our Canadian dollar being so strong, it's a good time to purchase. Please give me your expert opinion.
