Default Sunroof Junker on Ebay


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 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?
