  • Offered from a prominent private collection
  • Formerly of the famed Jerry Capizzi "Cappy Collection"
  • Striking color combination and numerous options
  • Factory 'D-Code' example

Acquired by its current owners from the famed Jerry Capizzi Ford collection in 2006, this stunning Thunderbird was at the time a longtime California car that had recorded 38,000 actual miles and had been a Classic Thunderbird Club International Gold winner in 1989.

The owners elected to have the car cosmetically restored, with a beautiful finish and quality brightwork, and an excellent, well-kept cream interior. Its dashboard incorporates the original Town & Country radio, as well as a tasteful aftermarket air conditioning system. Other accessories include an engine dress-up kit for the 245-hp 'D-Code' V-8, Fordomatic transmission, power steering and brakes, correct factory-style seatbelts, back-up lights, reproduction Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels, factory fender skirts, and both a soft top and removable "porthole" hardtop.

This is an excellent Thunderbird to drive and enjoy, as its current owners have, or to display at local shows this summer.
