Bird or Bat?

Bird or Bat?
Bird or Bat?

 History: I bought my 64 TBird from a family friend, Tim Volk, in Cheyenne, WY. Tim bought her from the collection of George Gillette of Aspen, CO (The Gillette of Gillette Razor Company). Gillette bought her from the Shane Collection (Cars Of Yesteryears), Metairie (New Orleans), LA. William H. Shane Jr. bought her from Judy Cooper of Afton, MO. The records I have for her ownership go back to April 80. She was built on 27 May 64 and shipped 4 June 64 to Ed Morse Ford in N. Miami Beach. 

A lot of folks call her the Batmobile. What do you think? Sometime for laughs, I ride around with a full size cardboard Batman strapped in. It works. The strangest story I have about her involves a spectator at a car show. He told me he used to have one just like mine and it was a retractible hard top. I pointed out the retractibles were 57 thru 59 Fairlanes. He insisted - by the way my soft top was up and he patted it & said "This is steel". Weird don't you think?

She is show-quality & her dozens of awards include numerous Best of Show & 1st Places, including 1st Place at an Antique Auto Club of America National Meet.

Options: Sports Roadster Tonneau, SelectAire A/C, 4 Way Power Seats (Driver & Passenger), Power Windows, Rear Seat Speaker, Deluxe Wheel Covers, Reclining Passenger Seat & Headrest, Rear Fender Shields, Tinted Glass, Safety Convenience Control Panel, Sports Side Trim.
