Bottom of motor and the transmission is still clean. Rear end was apart and restored. Shocks, gas tank, brakes exhaust were replaced. Very solid floors and braces with factory undercoat. Smooth, clean frame was painted semi gloss This is a properly restored, beautiful T-bird. Easy to drive with automatic, power steering and brakes. The T-bird was Americas other sports car for 3 years short years then Ford decided to add a backseat. In many ways it was more refined then the Corvette but still offered performance and sportiness. I have always loved the ram air scoop on the hood, I dont know of any other car doing that back then. It was impressive in 1957 and still is today!br/br/ Power steering br / Power brakes br / Power windowsbr / Convertible top br / Wire wheelsbr / Whitewallsbr / Owners manual br / Literaturebr/br/
