Purchased From
I purchased my bird off ebay back in 2005 sight unseen. The owner was moving from Palm Springs California to Dallas Texas and had to sell. I had the car shipped over with a Mustang (Shelby replica) which was a giveaway car at Unique Cars Magazine.

ModificationsN/A

Wheels Type & Size.
14” Kelsey Hayes wires (reproduction) with American Classic radials.

Work you’ve done or had done
Since taking ownership, I have had the engine bay resprayed along with the boot/bonnet/cowl. I have restored/replaced everything in the engine bay back to original specs. All emblems/ scripts have been replaced.
Boot detailed restored/new trunk mat/curtains.
Rebuilt master cylinder/booster. New exhaust/restored original exhaust hangers, replaced gas tank/sender. And a lot of cleaning!!! Upgraded tyres to American Classic radials 1” whitewall.


Future Plans
I am currently restoring my 63’s interior. My seats have been reupholstered using NOS trim.
All seat aluminium has been restored. The dash pad and glove box were restored by the dash doctor.
I am currently finishing off my vacuum door locks installation and hopefully the car is back on the road at some stage next year & upgrade to dual exhausts.

What do you enjoy most about your TBird.
I honestly just love looking at it in my garage!
I have met some great likeminded people through the years.
Cleaning it!
The hunt for that rare part!

Fantastic job there Angelo , very impressive. I like that slight "Tail Dragger" attitude she's displaying aswell.

ANGELO'S IMMACULTE 63

Post  jptbird on Sun Oct 14, 2012 7:17 pm

Great looking Bullet Bird Ange.
Congratulations on the work you have done so far.
Agree with Gio ... amazing engine bay.
Can't wait to see it out on the road. Would look cool sandwiched between a few of the white bullet birds going around.
