1959 “Square Bird” Thunderbird, 2-door Hardtop for sale in Roseville, Mn. 55113. Solid car spent at least the last 30 years in New Mexico in a private collection and was not driven since 1990.
) I originally had hoped to make the car safe and pass it on to family, but the recession changed their priorities and now it is available for sale. I made the car easy to finish, ready to decide how big (or small) a restoration is wanted. Work done 2020:
Someone swapped the original interior for Red/Black parts from a 1960 (which has different door panels than 1958-59,) Seats are good, but door panels are ratty. All interior parts are available new from Mac’s or Larry’s. I had thought to return it to Black and White for 1959.
Decided to strip off the thick multi-coats of paint and bondo. Stripped Roof, cowl, hood, doors, door jambs, trunk lid—all currently in primer only. Mostly raw metal, only filled a few small dents.
