Listing this 1958 Thunderbird, with the very low VIN number. This is a VERY low production car. IF... you are a Ford person, much less a Thunderbird person, and know its VIN history, then common knowledge is the "last six" VIN sequence. FOMOCO VIN #s began for decades at [hidden information]. This 1958 Thunderbird is a VERY early build from Wixom, MI on January 21st, 1958. The VIN reflects it as #[hidden information]. What an extremely RARE version of the first start of the four seated,"square bird" of 1[hidden information]. This car, as all the early '58's, were built with one choice of motor... the 300 HP 352 CI V-8. It's long gone, as is the "Cruise-O-Matic" automatic transmission. The original rear axle assembly is under it though, as well as the original front end suspension components. The car has a paint code of "M" which is "Gulfstream Blue". A medium blue that can be seen under the wanna be aqua. The repaint came in the mirror for sure, from the original trim code "XM", which is turquoise and white bucket seats in vinyl. The car was built with no A/C. In 1958 Michigan, it was a fantasy anyway. It does have a factory, power driver's seat and power windows. All of that stuff is still intact. This listing reflects what should be done with this car. A properly done 360 degree, rotating restoration of the one piece body structure. The driver/left front floorboard needs some work. With the VIN potential value, would suggest replacing both the hood and trunk lid. The glass is trash in the passenger side. The interior seat structures which can be redone, and the trim. The bumpers can be re-chromed. KEEP these. They are not bad enough to replace. This is an extreme project car, but WOW, what 1958 Ford history in the 10 digit VIN. Another option, "rough" it back to together, and make a "ROCKABILLY" car out of it. As it already has the vintage mags on it for that. Because the previous listing indicated a sale, Have a CLEAR FL title in my name, WITH ACTUAL mileage on it. Also have a copy of the 23 year old title to help preserve its paper trail history. Pics concrete the description of this project, therefore, NO RETURNS, but the VIN speaks for itself. Will be glad to assist in loading to ship. Overseas shipping okay. All the tires are up., so loading on a transporter is a breeze. Thanks for looking.
