Just found and obtained this Bird. It has less than 1000 miles. And is solid except for the nose cone and trunk floor. Interior is really nice. 440 6bbl 4 speed lemon twist. Really excited to get it on the road!!!!!!!!!!!

long story...but those are the original f60 polyglas tires on it. 1 of them still holds air! Has the original exhaust, tires, brakes, and the vinyl roof is really nice. Hasn't been driven since 1977.

Yeah it was from Eau Claire. I just brought it back from a barn in Florida. Car is very solid but as with most old cars someone started tried to save it by spraying primer all over it! LOL
