1963 Ford Thunderbird Landau Description

Here I have available is my 1963 Thunderbird Landau. This has been my personal luxury car and a lot of work has gone into restoring her. She is not perfect and has her quirks but expect that for a car 50 years old. I'mgetting older now and not able to keep up with maintaining her. It's time she goes to that next person that will cherish her and take good care of her. She is solid with no rust. Never been driven in the rain and has been garaged all her life. As far as I know, I bought her from the second owner who bought her in 1972. I have owned her since 2000. She drivesnice and looks great up front and no accidents to her. I bought her with 78,000 some miles on her. Have put 30,000 on her over the past 18 years. Odometer turned over now with under 500 miles. This is a non A/C car. There was a hole in the front center dash at one time, not sure what for but I added the factory a/c grill to cover the hole.Data Plate- 63B E 52 20K 11 1 4
