1959 Ford Thunderbird Barn Find

1959 Ford Thunderbird

This ’59 T-Bird isn’t my favorite year of Ford’s personal luxury cruiser, but this car has lots of potential. The seller seems honest about it’s condition and that it needs a lot of work. They claim the floors are solid, but admits there is rust in the quarters and the driver’s side door panel. The rust really doesn’t look that bad, but it is in Pennsylvania, so it could be worse than it looks. While I wouldn’t mind having one of these T-Birds, I think I’m more interested in finding out what else is being stored in this barn! I see all kinds of interesting goodies in the background, with lots of cars under covers. You can find this Ford here on eBay in Latrobe, Pennsylvania with biding at $1,800. Who else wants to know what else is hiding in this barn?

    I agree with you, Josh, this is not a great looking car. To have gone from the very sporty first generation Tbirds to this beast is pretty crazy; it looks like it ate one of them!

    I actually like the old Square Bird, drove a 1960 for a short time back in the early 70’s. Never had any problem with it. I have a neighbor with one of these 1959 Bird for sale, it is baby blue w/white top complete running with after market A/C. He is asking $10k. Decent CA car.

    I like the Squarebird too, not least because it’s the first car I can remember as a toddler (ours was a blue ’60). They’re somewhat garish in today’s eyes, but they obviously struck a chord in the late ’50s, since Ford sold more of these in one year than it did in the whole ’55-57 model run. I’d like to have one.

    The Studebaker Hawks could be considered a ‘personal luxury car’. I wonder if Ford was looking at these cars for inspiration?

    If I had my choice, of Thunderbirds, it would be this, or a 1960. I’m a Square ‘Bird fan.
