Original components throughout except for the perishable parts such as upholstery, tires, hoses, etc, very nice restoration finished several years ago with newer mechanical rebuild of engine/exhaust, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird is in excellent aesthetic and mechanical condition. Has hard and soft tops, power windows and seats, power steering and brakes, factory A/C and is in generally great condition inside and out. Nearly all of the original components are still on the car, including the vacuum operated windshield wipers. From what I can see after having owned the car for a only a short time, this car was driven in the past by the owner in Aurora, Oregon, but in the last decade or two has seen limited road time. Accordingly, the amenities and details are in pristine condition and this car is a very attractive driver. Not a ‘points car’, but certainly scores high in most areas.
The original Town & Country radio is still in place, vacuum tubes and all, but is not functional, as is the original clock, also not working. The speedometer wiggles a bit at speeds, but the odometer is accurate. There are some paint flaws, but the few that are present do not detract from the general excellent appearance of the car.
