The valve covers did not say "Thunderbird" until 1961. From 1958-1960, The 352 valve covers said "FORD" though some early 1958's were blank. The 430 valve covers were blank.

Yup the "Thunderbird" valve covers were definently 390 issue.
Plus, they were used on some of the early Hi-Perf 406's in the Galaxie's as the Thunderbird V8, even though they never put one in a TBird.

HEEEEEEEE'S BACK. Same car is relisted one more time. It may need another restoration before it is sold. Once had a Buy It Now price of $25,000. Must be listed by restoration shop that has a ton of money in parts and labor and is trying to make a profit. Personally, I've never made a profit and am lucky to get 75% of my expenses back, not counting my labor and skinned knuckles.

It makes many errors in his description, as you probably are aware. 1960 was not the only Squarebird with leaf springs. The hydro-electric mechanism was used on all Squarebirds, not just in 1960. Late in the 1959 model year it became fully automatic. There was no powered outside mirror available in 1960. The only way to get a remotely adjustable mirror was by ordering a spotlight. If it does have a power outside mirror it is not original.

$3,500,000 is a tad high asking price for a Squarebird.

I might consider selling one of mine for $2,000,000.

ok, ok!
I'll drop my price down to half million but not a penny less!

I concede that I do not have the "power outside mirror" and I realize that hurts my asking price so I'm willing to take a little less for the 'ol gal.

That's as low as I can go though!
I have that much "pain and suffering" in her regardless!

The seller may have made the same false assumption I made on my Bird when I first sat in it. The power windshield washer switch on the left door frame looks like a modern car's power mirror switch. I kept wondering why the mirror didn't move when I toggled the switch. My car doesn't have washer nozzles or a washer bag so I can be forgiven for my ignorance. For those big bucks I would insist on real power mirrors on BOTH sides.

I think you are right. I never thought of that possibility.

I did not know what that switch was for when I first got my '59.
