Default Thanks for the welcome everyone

Hi everyone:
After many decades of admiring the awesome bird, I finally am at a stage in my life where I could outbid all the other bird lovers on a classic beauty. A beautiful all original 60 hardtop. It is a pearl white with unblemished chrome and the aqua green interior. The outside is 9 on a scale of 1 - 10. The interior and engine are a 5 or 6 but again, this is unrestored. I have been on cloud 9 since being the top bidder. I drove it the 60 miles home and have put on a couple hundred miles cruising.

My first experience with the 60 bird was when my cousin from Alabama drove his 60 White bird to N. Minnesota for a visit in 63. He was an army officer (helicopter pilot) who served 3 tours in Nam. How I looked up to that guy.

So many cool memories . I will close and thanks again everyone for the awesome welcome.

Redneck

Congrat's on the '60 Bird Redneck. Be sure and check under the rear seat for the car's ROT sheet. It is an invaluable peice of info on these cars. Just be careful trying to remove it from the seat springs...

Are there any pics up on you T-bird yet?

Thumbs up Thanks tbird 430

Hey everyone:

I am such a newbie. I had no clue of the existence of the ROT but you pointed this out to me. I removed the rear seat and found a huge, very old rodent nest. No wonder the car was the mothballed and I am working on that now. Anyway, cleaned and vacumed the mess out but no ROT and then I tipped the rear floor mat forward, seeing a little corner of paper and there it was, the ROT. Dated 7/20 and I am assuming 1960 for my 60 tbird? Complete with serial number and all the optional orders. I have it in safe keeping now. Thanks a bunch everyone. I am going to the donate site to become a member. This is awesome.

Redneck
