1966 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop W/ 390 V-8 Engine on 2040-cars

Year:1966 Mileage:91000

Pittsford, New York, United States

Pittsford, New York, United States

Up for sale is a Nice Condition 1966 Ford Thunderbird 2-door Hardtop which my father bought while on vacation in 1978 in Naples, Florida. The car had belonged to the original owner who sold it due to her age at the time. Car had 80,317 miles at that time.  I have the original paid invoice when she bought the car new.   The car has been kept garaged year around here in Upstate NY, driven sparingly, and it has never been driven in snow.   I inherited it in 1995, and have driven it very little, but held onto it for sentimental reasons.  Iím hoping to find a car enthusiast who can really appreciate this car, put some work into it and take care of it.  

Now for my disclaimers: Please be aware that I have driven it VERY LITTLE and cannot say for certain what the car will need mechanically.  It is being sold in ďAS ISĒ condition.  From the little that Iíve driven it, it has a smooth revving/running engine and transmission shifts smoothly.  Last summer I took it in for an overall mechanical look-over, and had the following done: 1) new brake lines, 2) new fuel line, 3) brake booster replaced, 4) inspection of carb, but no work recommended., 5) front brake pads replaced. 6) new battery, 7) spark plugs and points replaced, 8) timing checked, 9) new master cylinder & right rear wheel cylinder, 10) parking brake check valve, 11) compression test.  I have receipts for all work (over $2,000), as well as receipts for any work done on it since 1978.

Features: 1) interior trunk lining fully restored, 2) tires were replaced and have very little wear, 3) car has never been in an accident, never been out in snow, 4) paint job except for the few chips mentioned is in Good condition (no rust),  5) chrome is in Good condition with very little pitting or oxidation, 6) radiator professionally re-cored and lower hose replaced in 1999,  7) original fender skirts and hub caps, 8) comes with breathable soft car cover for interior storage, 9) swing-away steering wheel, 10) sequential turn signal lights in rear, 11) Specialty license plate (66 T brd) could possibly be transferred to a NY buyer...not sure.

Iíve included some pictures (including flaws mentioned) in this posting. I would gladly email more pictures to serious buyers.  Again, this car is not in perfect condition and a true collector may want to have some things worked on.

Non-refundable Down payment of $500 due at end of auction upon successful win.  Buyer responsible for picking up.

Car is also being advertised locally, and I reserve the right to cancel this offering at any time during its listing.

Toyota tops Kelley Blue Book's Resale Value Awards

Tue, 27 Nov 2012

Kelley Blue Book announced its annual Best Resale Value Award winners, and we weren't too surprised to see the list dominated by Japanese automakers - mainly Toyota and Honda. KBB hands out the awards based on the projected residual value of mostly all 2013 model year vehicles, and Toyota skated home with a number of awards including 10 of the 22 overall categories and having five of its products in the top 10 for models with best resale value. KBB's Best Resale Value Awards were announced in the same week as the ALG Residual Value Awards, and there were many similarities between both lists, especially when it came to Toyota.
To come up with its winners, KBB measures depreciation over the first five years of ownership, and looks for the cars it expects to hold its value the best after this time; on average, the report says the 2013 model year vehicles will lose 61.8 percent of its value in five years. Of the 22 categories, 15 slots were filled by Toyota, Honda and Nissan products, while the Camaro and Porsche (Cayenne and Panamera) each took home a pair of awards. If Toyota has anything to be upset about in this list of cars, it's that categories for Hybrid/Alternative Energy Car and Electric Vehicle went to the Ford Fusion and Chevrolet Volt, respectively.
The overall top 10 models for the best resale value in 2013 are, in alphabetical order:

BMW V8-powered Ford Model A is the definition of Hot Rod

Thu, 20 Jun 2013

Today, hotrodding has a pretty staid definition. Take one classic American car, add one classic American V8, sprinkle with tire smoke and you pretty much have every hot rod to roll out of a shop in the last 40 years. Mike Borroughs knows it wasn't always this way. Once upon a time, getting your bucket to go faster meant grabbing whatever parts were lazing about the yard, bolting them together with a bit of ingenuity and laughing your way down the quarter mile. It's in that spirit that Burroughs built his 1928 Ford Model A.
Rather than turn to the tired flathead or the common Chevrolet small block, Burroughs plucked a 4.0-liter V8 from a 1995 BMW 7 Series. With 300 horsepower and 300 pound-feet of torque, the engine has no trouble shuffling the old A around town. He had to build a custom chassis to get everything to cooperate, but the result is a 1,500-pound heathen that looks built to harass dry lake beds. You can check it out in the video below. Be warned, the soundtrack by Hanni el Khatib may not be safe for work - awesomeness of this caliber rarely is.

Is Tesla's next project an F-150 competitor? [w/poll]

Wed, 13 Nov 2013

What's the future look like for Tesla after it launches the Model X CUV and possibly a smaller, sub-Model S sedan? Would you believe a pickup truck? Yes, Tesla could be looking to use its EV know-how to take the fight to Ford and the F-150, based on comments made by company founder Elon Musk.
"If you're trying to replace the most gasoline miles driven, you have to look at what people are buying," Musk said during an impromptu Q&A session following a speech at Business Insider's Ignition conference. "[The F-150 is] the best selling car in America. If people are voting that's their car, then that's the car we have to deliver."
And while the idea of electric pickup may sound kind of absurd to some, Musk makes a very valid point - if Tesla's goal is to replace gas miles with electrical miles, it simply can't afford to ignore pickups.
