57 Just Landed!

Post by Sleepy57 on Thu Sep 19, 2013 3:02 am

My wife and I just inherited a 1957 T-Bird from my father-in-law. He bought it in 1986 and drove it for a year putting 200 miles onto the 64,000 miles it had. He parked it and moved it from garage stall to garage stall. I just finished my new garage and had the bird brought over with a bunch of parts and paperwork. Its a really nice car and hope to get the tank changed out, rebuild the carb, brakes and fire it up!

Well done Sleepy, nice Baby Bird there. I see you've got power steering & boosted brakes - good options. Love the exterior/interior combo. Good bunch of people here, any problems, we'll soon tell you what you doing wrong. Cheers, Paul.
