Alexander is on a distinguished road

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.
