This car is all original and was bought sight unseen from Duffy's Collectable Cars in Cedar Rapids Iowa in July 2002. This is a California Car and was pampered by a little old lady from San Diego, who treated it like it was one of her children. It is a unique automobile with its two-tone paint, AM-FM 8Track, quadraphonic stereo, dual exhaust, four wheel disc brakes, climate control A/C, 6-way twin, power seats, chrome wheels, tilt steering column, cruise control, power antenna, and the 460 V8 that powers this 4,800 pound beast, and most of this was all standard equipment in 1976. 52,935 Birds were made, and only a couple thousand of this rare breed was produced - with the Cream and Gold Edition. The original purchase price was $11,146.
