Smile 60 bird back seat, bottom

hi, my first post.

I'm looking for the material to do my 60's back seat lower or bottom cushion. If you can believe that is the only one with a tear! Usually the rears last forever cause no-one sits there. I priced set's @ $450.00 on the avg but I hoped maybe someone had a new unused or unneeded in code 52, Dark Blue and Light Blue to sell.

Thunderbirds are sure more costly that classic mustangs for parts! Thanks for reading.

Default 60 bird back seat, bottom

Hi Bill!

Hopefully, someone here will have what you need. I went through most of the Tbird parts houses catalogs in the last few minutes. Only The Bird Nest and Bob's Bird House list the complete set for less than what you quoted. $369.95, I think they were. You can find their contact information in the Advertisements Forum, right above this. None of them will sell you the back set set, that I know of. But call Bob at Bob's Bird House, or Don, at the Bird Nest and ask. Maybe they have a set that has been broken up with the back seat covers available that they will sell to you, if someone here cannot help you out.

Welcome to Squarebirds, Bill.

Mustangs are a dime a dozen, and available everywhere. These old T-birds are fifty plus years old with engines dating much earlier than 302's.

The difference is, once you restore a Thunderbird, you have an elegant classic automobile you can be proud to drive to any occassion.

I have a Mustang. It's wicked-fast (351W EFI, AOD w/stall, 4:30 gear in 8.8 RE, General Kinetics roller cam, roller chain, headers, 2-chamber exh, electric fan...) but it will never be a classic Thunderbird. - Dave

That's for the replies. I currently have a show winning 70 Mach 1 I've owned since 1975 and I'm always proud to be seen in. It has All the toys, cleveland - toploader - 9in 3:50 limited slip "n" case with 31 splines - ram air and such. But I always wanted another Bird.

I had a 62 in High school but my eyes have always been for the square birds. Now, I have one but it needs attention. It won't win any awards anytime soon but it is differant from what roams car shows this day and age. I got the back seat repaired by the same guy who just put in the new headliner. That should take me thru this year - next year I'll just step up to the plate and buy a full set of covers. What the heck, it's only $$$$!
