Pics: Have received my barn find ‘56 Thunderbird.
My bride each year makes a unilateral rule that I cannot acquire any cars for myself during November and December. I only can provide wish lists. However, this barn find in the small unincorporated community of Supply, NC, was a rough Brooklin 1956 Thunderbird. After negotiation, an exception was granted. It arrived today wrapped only in bubble wrap. As promised to several of you who asked, Ill posts pictures as the restoration begins. Left windshield post is damaged and there are dents and paint chips on the car. Id love to know its history. I can now envision the results of a body off frame restoration. The color will be Sunset Coral. Heres the car now. More pictures will follow as work progresses.
