G = Chicago Plant
87 = 2dr Hardtop
F = 302 engine


A genuine "time-capsule" beauty!

Less than 50,000 miles on this classic T-Bird. The interior appears as in the showroom, the exterior the same but with a slight patina.

It has sat in inside storage for 20+ years, and required some mechanical work to get it to its present state.

The (302) engine was rebuilt with:

- .030-over pistons
- valves
- pushrods

The fuel system was completely replaced with:

- rebuilt carburetor
- new fuel pump
- new fuel tank
- new fuel sending unit

Additionally:

- new Kumho tires (including spare)
- new battery
- new ignition module

I would not hesitate to set sail for California in this beauty. It glides (floats?) down the road in quiet comfort.

Cons?

I will leave it up to the proud new owner to:

- test and restore the air conditioning? All the original components are there, but you may want a more modern compressor
- repair/replace the 2-piece vinyl top? It is intact and there has no moisture hiding underneath. However, there are a number of splits that should be sealed/replaced.

I would be happy to pick up the new owner at Northwest Arkansas Regional airport (XNA) if you want to enjoy the drive home.

Asking $9,000.
