This Thunderbird is finished in a show-worthy factory Royal Maroon and shows in immaculate condition. A black padded roof is aesthetically pleasing against its shiny maroon paint and adds to the vintage curb appeal along with its flawless chrome trim. 

When it comes to classic cars, finding an example in fantastic condition that still retains its original drivetrain can prove a tedious task. Under the hood of this vintage beauty is a numbers-matching Thunder Jet 429cui V8 engine with an output of 360-horsepower. Ford made the large-displacement 429cui a standard option for the 1968 model year to compete with the Cadillac Eldorado, Buick Riviera, Imperial Crown Coupe, and Oldsmobile Toronado.
