The Thunderbird is still a working progress. My father-in-law purchased the car in Columbia, SC in 1957. Unfortunately, he parked the car in 1969 and it sat under a carport until he gave the car to my wife, Zan, in 2010. The car was covered in inches of dust. The 312 Y block motor was locked up from sitting for so long and had to be totally rebuilt. I have redone everything mechanically on the car, as well as the interior. The plan is to begin the body work this Summer. The picture is of my wife and her father after a nice ride around town.
