Default RE: A nice 60 for sale

That is a nice car.

I'm sure Alexander is correct on that chrome kit. I don't remember seeing those on cars until more recent years. As a kid, I knew every TBird around (our area) because we had one. I never saw chrome body parts on them. Actually, I don't ever remember seeing those red white & blue centers on the hubcaps, but I'm told they were a dress up option. I'm know that "some" Ford dealers (in the early to mid 60's) had the wire wheels on hand and would install them on any Ford if the customer wanted them. They would just be there on display.
There is a 57 Fairlane conv, thats been around as long as I can remember. It's always had the (orig) KH wires on it. I've compared horror stories with him recently re' tubes and so on.
