GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1997 Ford Thunderbird “Bird in a Box” for sale. The car was built on a 1997 Ford Thunderbird drivetrain and body. The Shoebox Bird was given new front fenders, fiberglass hood and trunk and add-ons to the rear fenders. The idea behind the “Bird in a Box” was to give the front and rear look of a 1950 to a 1990 T Bird. It has a 1950 Ford grill, Dodge Dakota bumpers, which gives it a look all of its own.
It also has a Karmann Ghia license plate light, 16 inch American Racing wheels with newer tires, gray vinyl interior, center console with front bucket seats, Sanyo tape player. The Bird is was painted in July of 2006 Ford “TK” Mineral Gray Metallic paint and still shows well.
This cool cruiser has the vintage look with the driver comforts of a more modern car. This car comes with a photo album which documents the entire build. This car is truly unique and is turn-key ready to go. Many hours of shop time and planning went into this custom cruiser and it was finished up in 2006.
