A real mechanical marvel! Putting the retractable top through it's cycle captures people's attention. This Skyliner is a factory black car with the Thunderbird Special motor. Overall a straight, good looking car.

EXTERIOR: The body is clean and straight. Even though it is an older paint job, there is no rust or repair work showing. The original trim tag says this is a factory raven black car with a white roof. It has a very glossy smooth finish. There are minor imperfections and touch .....
ups if you look for them. In front the bumper has beautiful chrome, the grill is original and it's tarnished. The rear bumper has been rechromed. The stainless moldings and the anodized trim are good originals, not restored. The windshield's been replaced, it has a soft gasket. Coker Classic radial white walls are so new they still have nubs on the tread. The reproduction hub caps look like new. The top is functioning very well. Everything folds, retracts and screws down with 1 switch.

INTERIOR: It's unabused, looks good but not perfect. The seats have been reupholstered in the original type fabric and reproduction door panels have been installed. The dash is repainted nicely. The trim, bezels, radio, instruments are in original condition, not beat up but showing age. There is a CD stereo mounted below the dash.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the optional Thunderbird Special 312-245 hp motor. The D7 in the vin indicates it was born this way. It includes a 4 barrel carb and dual exhaust. The valve covers are labeled Thunderbird Special too. It features power steering and is upgraded with a new power brake system. Overall the compartment looks respectable. The motor runs smooth.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The top folds into the trunk space. With the top down there's enough space for about 2 suitcases. Overall good condition. The metal is painted black, the liner is good. The spare is in the floor under a lid.

UNDERSIDE: It appears to be very clean, dry metal. The frame and floor are smooth metal painted satin black. The dual exhaust system looks recent and has glass pack style mufflers. It's been upgraded with Wilwood disc brakes in front. It's not a body off frame restoration but all the components look good including the bottom of the motor and the automatic transmission.

I think this is an intriguing car that makes a wonderful cruiser. The condition throughout appears to be good. It's a sharp looker!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
