T-Bird Lane: 1963 Ford Thunderbird

1963 Ford Thunderbird

UPDATE 11/28/15 – This one is back on eBay without the optimistic BIN.

FROM 5/12/15 – Imagine cruising along top down in your beautiful Thunderbird convertible with the wind doing the usual things to your hair. The story of this 1963 Thunderbird convertible was that it was driven into a garage in 1980 and eventually buried in the owner’s horde along with 3 Harley’s. It’s hard to imagine what it must have been like for his family cleaning up after he passed away. Hopefully, they found many treasures buried in the trash. The motorcycles were probably more of a treasure than this T-Bird. Do you think this car could be worth the $12,000 BIN price? They say the interior and carpets need to be replace so perhaps the mice have been busy over the years? The top probably needs replacing as well. Hopefully the person who buys it will get it for a reasonable price and not have to spend too much money reviving it to it’s former glory. It’s for sale in Graham, Washington (just south of Tacoma) and listed here on eBay. Would you take a spin down T-Bird lane?

    The listing has been pulled already, stating “item not available.” I wonder what happened??? :-)

    Somebody came to an agreement on price with them and got it for way less than if the auction had continued.

    you sure that wasn’t $1200.00?? i’ll ask again…how do people just park them up and forget about them for decades????

    another interesting car. parked because life got in the way, i guess. not sure about the price but would be a fun driver once it was made safe. i hope they list the rest of the vehicles. nice find

    Yep Gone. Cash Talks. I hope whoever got it, shows us pics of the restoration. I see waay to many cars at Texas Swap Meets that are great, they sell then nothing, never to be seen again. Speaking of T-Birds, I have a ’59 Convertible I may sell..

      “never to be seen again”
      Maybe, but I’ll bet that in 10 or 20 years some of them will show up on Ebay/CL and then be posted here on Barn Finds, still looking like they did at those swap meets.

      Check that—-some of them will have wavy trunk lids, roofs, or hoods that they didn’t have before because they served as shelving like the poor ‘Bird in this BF entry.

    It’s shaping up to be a very Thunderbird Christmas around here at BarnFinds.

    Ran when parked…Always Garage Stored….May need suspension work…May need minor body work to trunk area…
