"Carefully restored and equally carefully preserved."


This Thunderbird was meticulously restored to show-quality in the USA during the 1980s, winning multiple awards there. It arrived in Sweden in 2007 and has only had one owner here. Since then, it has been maintained in essentially the same excellent condition. Delivered new in Fiesta Red with a white hardtop and a black convertible top, the hardtop is included along with a kit to install 'port windows' in it.

  • Mechanical condition:

    Everything mechanical and electrical is in excellent condition. At the time of the photo shoot, there was an issue with the convertible top latch, which has now been fixed.

  • Interior condition:

    Everything inside is in very good condition. There are some signs of wear on the driver's seat. The dashboard and steering wheel are in perfect condition. The plastic cover for the speedometer has held up very well over the years with relatively few signs of aging.

  • Exterior condition:

    Considering it was painted quite some time ago, it has held up remarkably well. There are a few imperfections in the paint, such as occasional small scratches and some minor sinking that can be noticed upon close inspection. There is also some thinning of the paint on the lower part of the doors from the beginning, but it is free from bubbles, blisters, and the like. It's a professional job that has endured. There is a paint chip on the spare tire cover - it comes into contact when opening the trunk, which is unavoidable with these models. Bumpers, rims, and trim are in excellent condition, and the convertible top is as well. Cast metal details, such as emblems and the surrounds around the taillights, have developed some small pores over the years.

  • General condition:

    An older restoration project aimed to preserve the car as faithfully to its original factory condition as possible. It still remains in near-top condition to this day.

Auction information

General information about the condition of the vehicles .
  • At this auction, many vehicles have been included in car collections and have been stored (mothballed) for a long time. For this reason, they are described from a collector's perspective and may need technical reviews and maintenance service - oil, battery replacement, new tires, brake review, etc. - before they can be used. .
  • During the auction days information about a vehicle may be updated up to the day before the auction ends. When you bid at the end of the auction period - and also if you have made an earlier bid - we therefore ask you to read the descriptions carefully, in case something has been changed due to new information.
Important to know before placing your bids!
  • Once you have called in an item and the reservation price is reached we want you to deposit the entire purchase amount into our client funds account before retrieval can take place.
  • When you need to retrieve a called in object we want you to examine it carefully. If you consider that the item does not match our description you do not need to complete the purchase. In this case the deposited purchase sum and the entry fee are refunded.
  • If you do not examine the item on the spot the call charge will be debited, but you do not have to complete the deal.
  • If you make the entire purchase exclusively at a distance you have 14 days to cancel, but must return the item at your own expense.
  • Your shipping costs and other costs are not reimbursed when the right of withdrawal is exercised. Swedish court applies.
  • For items that have not been collected within 14 days storage costs may be charged.
