Auction Sales History

1958 Ford Thunderbird

1960 Ford Thunderbird Convertible 0Y73Y152444 – sold for €25,300. One of the most desirable and sought-after of all post-war American automobiles, this attention grabbing four-seat Thunderbird has the 352ci (5,766cc) Interceptor engine and three-speed automatic gearbox. Details of the car’s previous history are unknown, other than the fact that it was in Quebec, Canada in 1989. A complete new engine was fitted recently and the car retains its original radio, while the retractable hood is in correct working order. The accompanying 2013 condition report (expertise) describes the car as an older (20-plus years) cosmetic restoration that remains in generally good condition having seen little use since, while benefiting from more recent mechanical updating. Auction Source: 2015 Les Grandes Marques du Monde au Grand Palais
