Amazing 1968 Thunderbird — Many people haven't seen one of these in a long time and it seems to bring back good memories for a lot of folks. It is very fast - definitely a 'luxury muscle' car. It even has cruise control, remote trunk release, reclining power seat, pop-up headlights work... etc.

Pros: Just had the engine bored and rebuilt. <200 miles on the rebuild. Runs great, pretty much floats on the road due to awesome suspension. Everything works except the A/C which I plan to fix within a couple of years. Interior is perfect... Too many pros to list. No rust, no bondo; very solid. Power everything works, etc.

Cons: None. It is in awesome shape. (Although I have fixed it up quite a bit mechanically.)

It Would Take A Wow Factor To Get This Out Of My Hands — As a kid I wanted my mother to get this 68 bird but my father was a chevy man, sorry dad, I recommend this 1968 Ford Thunderbird 429cc as a classy classic I traded a 1985 Red Corvette and feel I got more then my monies worth. 4 months of bartering from 1200.00 to the thunderbird

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Overall, she gets the looks, stylish, strong runner, tight on the corners, smooth on the road
My mother is 92, and loves it

Cons: She's a hog, 10 to 12 mpg...... and loves premium gas and non oxy, so its a bit spendie their

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: its an Antique

Cons: no negatives

1968 T-bird — Great acceleration... 0-60 in under 10 sec, not bad for a 4600lb car! Solid build...suicide doors with an I-beam that will destroy the front end of anything it hits. Super fun to drive...It's great to know you have more acceleration even when you are going 90mph!

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: 360 horses, gorgeous, and unique!

Cons: 17 mpg, but who cares when you're having so much fun!

Great Looking Car! — My Brother-In-Law owed me $200, and was about to loose this car to a towtruck, so I assummed the responsibility of towing the car to my home and he'd sign over the title. I live in the rain forests of Washington State, and the back window had been broken for some time, not to mention the the two rubber drain tubes under the rear window had disintegrated. No carpet, the headliner was hanging down on my head, no interior lighting, and a slew of other electrical and vacuume related issues awaited me in my garage. Finally got it running only to find out it has a cracked exhaust manifold.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: The Sequential Tailights and Hidden Headlights

Cons: some parts are hard to find

68 Tbird — It's a 68 2 dr with a vinyl roof. Bought out of Virginia and has a current VA inspection. The paint is mostly gone what rust I see is only surface. The vinyl roof is sun rotted and will need to be replaced. All lights work and so do the flip up headlights. On the interior I'll need some inside door panels and the the seats need to be refoamed as you feel the springs when you sit in both seats. Headliner, and carpet looks decent for being 40 years old. This was delivered 2 days ago so I'm still going over the car! The motor is a 429 and sound real strong. Starts up a little hard and could use a new set of plugs.

Owner for 0 years, 1 months

Miles Driven per Year:3,000

Pros: good motor, reasonable purchase cost

Cons: paint, vinyl, and some interior stuff has to be replaced

I loved my 68 T Bird from its sleek looks to its muscle car performance. The T Bird never let me down. Looking for another.
