Default '60 Squarebird Of Rob McLellan!

Rob is a brand new to us Tbird owner, having just joined the Forum. But here is some of what he had to say to John ~ jopizz and I about his Tbird, and also some pix he sent of his drop dead gorgeous '60 Hardtop... BTW, Rob told me his VIN # and it is a J Code! 430MEL engine, Paint Code KM=Turquoise Metallic/Sultana Turquoise/Corinthian White top, with matching interior Trim Code 77, Dark/Light Turquoise Vinyl.

"Hello John and Ray,

Early to bed and early to rise. I woke up to your emails from last night but I was out behind my shop at the crack of dawn doing restoration work. Now with the threat of rain, I am showered and at the computer.

Having been in the old car hobby since the late 40s as a kid, I know I have met you at some time John, as your name is familiar. Ray, I look forward to meeting you. The Thunderbird is a modern car to me, a prewar guy, but I love it. You both have been extremely helpful and I greatly appreciate working with you both. I look forward to continuing this relationship.
Best wishes, Rob"

Here are some pix that Rob has shared with us. Enjoy! Welcome Aboard, Rob!

Great to see another '60 Tbird out and about.

(and driving them is just as much fun )

Like that color combo too - very nice.

Good photos of a very original looking Bird.

I noticed your converted alternator has a 2 belt pulley. Do you know the pulley part number and where you purchased from?

I'm not even certain a 2 belt pulley would work for me since my alternator pulley, which is as deep as yours but has one groove closer toward the front, lines up with the inner pulley on the crank.

Hi Dean, I can probably answer that question for you. Rob just recently bought that Tbird, and that alternator set up was already in place when he received the car. However, along with the car, came a BIG binder of information on the car, which I was able to look through when they were visiting me. In that binder there may be receipts regarding that information. Rob will probably see your post and can look through his binder to see if he has that info in it...

Rob & Bea just sent me some more pix of their gorgeous Sultana Turquoise & White 430MEL Squarebird! The rain stopped enough to allow them to get out and road test it. Here are some new pix they sent me.
