The curvaceous thick door panels are wrapped in black leather with some turquoise leather covered swooping long armrests, and a black padded window sill attached at the top. There is a large panel of machined aluminum through the center which is the background for the door actuator. These are nice and clean, with the aluminum showing a few scuffs. This panel looks the part, as they melt into the custom curved dash keeping the machined metal line through the center. A fan style turquoise background with white numbered speedometer is above on the padded black dash top and turquoise below. Flanking on either side of the speedo are round gauges, one a tachometer, and the right a clock both courtesy of Classic Instruments. Just below in the swoop down of the reshaped and reformed 1959 Thunderbird console is the controller for the Vintage AC & heater. This console races between the custom seats with cup holders, billet power window switches, and the polished ball topped shifter arm. Speaking of the seats, how about a pair of narrowed and shortened 1968 Thunderbird buckets, refinished in soft black leather with a peppering of turquoise thrown in for some extra good looks. Not only are these seats comfortable but they're also power actuated. Nice condition black carpeting floods the floors, and an Ididit tilt column and Con2R custom steering wheel fronts the pristine dash. Add in an AM/FM/6 CD changer stereo with a USB port and we're in touring heaven.
A 347ci Ford stroker V8 engine, making a consignor stated 425hp is in a clean and shiny engine bay. It is topped with ProComp aluminum heads, a ground and epoxied polished Barry Grant 6 shooter intake with 3-2bbl Barry Grant carbs on top along with a custom airbrushed air cleaner assembly. Black is reserved for the block, and the shiny black Thunderbird airbrushed valve covers add some more bling to the bay. A Tremec 5-speed manual transmission and a 3.55 Posi Dana 44 rear axle complete the drivetrain. Our eyes are drawn all over the engine bay with one hit coming after the next. We note a polished aluminum radiator, 2500cfm cooling fan, custom smoothed firewall, chrome plated hood releases, and a modified splash pan to name a few. Just a beautiful presentation under the hood.
