Problem is everybody thinks their car that's been sitting outside under a tree for 20 years is worth as much as a fully restored one. If it has the Lincoln 430 in it, that would be sweet!

Although in looking at it, even though it would a hell of a project, at least it is a complete car. Four seater right? I think they called them 'square birds'...

If it IS a '60, it's the first 4 seat T-bird.

Having all the little trim pieces, moldings, etc is huge on a resto. It would be fun!

I almost got one just like that years ago for $1000. The guy had EVERYTHING to fix it up. He had 2 donors he got a second motor/trans, 2 full sets of chrome trim, etc...

I wasn't incredibly bad, I just didn't have anywhere to put it at the time

Sure that's not a '58/'59? Didn't Ford change the body to almost a full size "ugly" car in '60?

Well, best as I can tell by the tail lights it's a '60. That and a back seat. But I'm not an expert.

I stand corrected, the '61 bird is when they went ugly.
