story that never happened to me, until a few weeks ago. Driving to work day
after day, passing a small auto repair shop
the high desert of
Southern California. One
morning a really sharp 1960 Thunderbird showed up behind the fence of the shop.
Every morning I drove by thinking, man
what a nice looking old T-Bird. Sure enough one morning , a For Sale
sign appeared in the side window. I hit
the brakes with both feet. I thought for sure I would be let
down by an out of reach sale price. The sign read “ New Motor, Brakes,
Tires, Carb and Tune up” “$3,800
or Best offer”. It was 5 in the
morning so calling the number
be out of the question at this time of day. I could not wait for a decent hour
to arrive. I called the number and
within a few hours I drove the car home.
So it begins one by one, piece by piece every thing is coming together. The
Radio was a simple matter of plugging in the antenna lead to get working. The
Steering wheel was
The only missing original
piece replaced by the correct one on Ebay.
Disk brake conversion is being put together now. A new exhaust system has been installed.
I truly love my new found ride and already
Squarebirds.org has been the answer to many questions not found in the manuals
I have acquired. More to come!!!
