It has been my experience that any classic car like what you have can take around 10 thousand American dollars to get them up to safety standards, electrical working, body repairs and paint plus interior work. But in the end some how it all seems worth it, just to go crusing down the highway in big heavy hunk of American iron. So don't get discouraged, sometimes a project can take more time than we think it should. Car Gurus are just car people that are here to help as best we can, so ask away. Good Luck on your T Bird.
