How much would my car be worth if it only has the original 28,000 miles and the original 429 Shelby engine?
Hi shervonr! Here's teh google search results I got for 1965 T-Birds for sale. perhaps you can find a comp here that matches your classic. That will give you a ballpark price. The simple answer is that it is worth whatever someone will pay for it. Hope you find a hot buyer. Good luck! http://www.google.com/search?aq=t&oq=1965+Thunderbird&num=20&hl=en&safe=off&q=1965+thunderbird+for+sale
I'd say you are looking somewhere in the vicinity of $8000 to $12000. Thats in good condition. Not sure how much will be taken off of that b/c of the vinyl roof.
Well, first of all, if it's a 65 T-bird, It wouldn't have a 429 or a shelby engine. The 429 didn't come out until 1969 and there is no such thing as a Shelby engine. The late Carroll Shelby didn't build engines, he built complete race cars and NEVER did anything with Thunderbirds. So with that said. an unrestored original 1965 T-bird Hardtop Landau with probably a 352 or a 390 engine even with low miles is probably worth about $6000- $8000 dollars If a new vinyl top is needed I would subtract another $1000 from the total. Unfortunately, mid 1960's Thunderbirds are not bringing top money unless they are convertibles and in excellent condition. Kenny.
Bet he means the 428, but that did not come out till 66 and even with 3 dueces stock, was kind of a dog. Really heavy cars and if rebuilt even a few pounds heavier because the weak unibody frame rails were ideally replaced by rolled sheet metal on a quality rebuild.
