V8 Hardtop
Engine #: H8YH 135648
Sold for $4,620 at 2017 Bonhams : Greenwich Concours.
This Ford Thunderbird was built in the Wixom assembly plant on September 8th of 1958 and fitted with a 352 cubic-inch motor offering 300 horsepower. The engine was coupled to the Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission and given a 3.1 rear axle ratio. It was painted in Raven Black with tan/white vinyl trim.

It is believed that the original owner of this T-Bird was a Shipping Company. In 1976, the car was acquired from Bob Cowart of New Orleans by John Shuck. The car had given Mr. Cowart enough trouble to cause him to write a note to Henry Ford III to complain. Their Customer Relations department responded and assured Mr. Cowart that their local representatives would work with him to resolve the issues.

After years of use by the Shucks, the car was put into storage. Currently, it is in 'barn-find' condition.
