IL CALL TODAY WE SHIP WORLDWIDE! PPI's WELCOME OFFERS WELCOME! Evolve Motors and Chicago Car Club are pleased to present this 1979 Ford Thunderbird! A few weeks back. a woman who has long come to our shop for paint and body work stuck her head into the showroom and asked if we would be interested in taking a look at two of her neighbor's cars that were coming up for sale. a ‘79 Ford Thunderbird and an ‘83 Lincoln MKVI. She told us that her late neighbor. a Chicago doctor. had passed away close to ten years ago and his wife was now moving out of the house and was going to sell his cars. The garage where the cars were stored was right up the street. so we went on over. The elderly widow let us into the garage and told us all about her husband and his cars; meticulous only begins to describe the late owner's care for the cars. The garage was well lit. neat. and had a Freon system mounted on the wall so he could maintain the cars' air conditioning systems himself. Underneath just a thin coat of dust. it was very clear that these cars were in close-to-new condition. We were told that the Lincoln was the doctor's daily driver. while the T-Bird was his weekend car. The T-Bird is truly a nearly-perfect “survivor” car; it has just 11. 66 miles on it and still sits on the original tires. which are in excellent shape. You sure don't see ‘em like this very often! Exterior: Polar White paint is original throughout. as confirmed with an elcometer. There are no spots of touch up paint anywhere on the car. There are only a couple very minor blemishes in the original paint. including a few small chips on the headlight covers (consistent with the 11k miles). and a light scuff on the rear bottom corner of the driver door. Please see the photos. as these blemishes are evidenced with close-ups. Polar white looks absolutely phenomenal in contrast with the red pinstripes and red leather interior. Paint shines bright and shows no clear coat fade or aging; it's very clear that this car was garage-kept and babied since it was purchased new in Chicago. where it has remained ever since. Chrome is excellent throughout; there is no oxidation or damage to any of the chrome – bumpers. rocker trim. and door trim are all in fantastic shape. All lights. including lower fogs. are clear and crack-free. as is all glass. There are no wiper streaks or nicks on the windshield. Wheels are in as-new condition with no curb rash. and still wear their original Goodyear rubber. Tires. though obviously quite old. show no rot whatsoever and still retain 80+ percent tread. Overall. the condition of the exterior is extremely impressive. This is a true survivor car that has been unbelievably well-preserved. Interior: The interior presents much like the exterior. phenomenally well. Dark Red ultra-soft leather truly does not show any signs of aging or wear. and neither does the dark red carpeting. There is no color fade whatsoever. and seats are free of any scuffs or tears. There are no dash cracks or warping in the plastic. All powered systems work without fault. Air conditioning (R134a) blows cold. heat and defrost blow hot. and all gauges are functional. Powered seats. locks. antenna. original radio. and windows are all functional and operate without any fuss. The car is equipped with cruise control. as well as an alarm system with a push-button kill switch mounted under the dash. Headliner is tight. and the rear seats don't look to have ever been used. Under the Hood: This ‘79 T-Bird retains its original Windsor 351cid 2V V8 and FMX Automatic with just 11. 66 miles. Under the hood. the car presents very nicely. All stickers and markings are still in place and clearly legible. Shortly after taking the car out of the garage where we had purchased it from. we went for an hour-long stretch of the legs to get acquainted. The car felt fantastic. It starts right up. tracks straight. brakes straight and effectively. and shifts nice and smooth. There were no tendencies or noises of any concern. The car stayed cool while sitting in Chicago traffic. and is extremely quiet from behind the wheel. I wouldn't hesitate to drive the car anywhere in the country. Underbody: Please take a look through the underbody photos. as it is documented in detail. The car looks excellent from underneath. Factory undercoating has held up very well. There is absolutely no rust. surface or through. and no damage. Overall. this ‘79 T-Bird is just about as nice as they come. So many of these cars were street parked and driven into the ground. not this one. This one-owner. extremely low mile and original example is sure to make the next owner very. very happy regardless of if they purchase with the intention of daily-driving or retiring to their collection. Please feel free to reach out to Jake or Mike at with any questions or requests. Vehicle Photos: Vehicle Warranty:
