1962 Ford Thunderbird Description

Clear Wisconsin Title in hand.
Original 1962 Ford Thunderbird - body only. No drivetrain or suspension. This car is a prime candidate for a resto-mod, rat rod, custom, or donor. This car was media blasted in 2019 to remove all paint and rust (except for the very top of the roof). It was then set to receive all new exterior sheet metal and body repairs but the project stopped there due to lack of time.

The rear quarter panels were cut off with room left for installation and fabrication of new quarters. The original passenger-side inner rocker structure was deteriorated and a new piece was fabricated using new 14 gauge metal and tacked in. Additional work is needed to complete the installation of that along with the outer rocker panels.
The battery apron was replaced with new sheet metal and tacked in. Trunk requires new left and right side repair panels along with new wheelhouse extensions. Rear wheel houses require metal repair (or new wheel tubs for wider tires?).
The body is straight. The roof is not rusted or dented. The firewall is solid. Front clip is good except for some areas that require rust repair on both sides.This is where it would be a good donor.
I have most of the replacement sheet metal and other parts available. Please inquire if you need anything else.
Local pick-up only. This car can easily be loaded on a trailer with the wheels that are attached to the car. I will help assist with your shipper if needed. Please ask any questions you may have. Item located in New Berlin, WI.
