    This car is not an actual Thunderbolt (see below), but it is a 2 door sedan and looks the part.

    This car was treated to a rotisserie restoration finished in 2018. The underside was stripped and painted along with the rest of the car in wimbledon white.

    Every nut and bolt was removed, cleaned, painted and reinstalled. The panels were meticulously fitted over and over before paint was applied to make sure the gaps were good. This was not an overnight restoration.

    This thing is fast. I do not have track slips to prove it, but I would imagine it is low 10 to mid 11 second car at slowest.

    Less than 500 miles on the restoration.

    Clear texas title in my name.

    - Wimbledon white PPG DBC with PPG clear.
    - Fairlane 500 trim polished and side trim freshly painted.
    - Crites tear drop fiberglass hood
