1969 Ford Thunderbird!

Hey everyone!
Can't believe I didn't think of this sooner but I have a 1969 Ford Thunderbird for sale right now on Craigslist. I would love to sell it, or trade it in for a school bus, preferably 10-12 windows, good tires, little to no rust, full mechanical order. Would love a flat nose rear engine bus, but honestly not that picky, not too worried about miles or year either. Cummins and Allison totally welcome!

Here's my ad:

Lots of pictures in the ad!

I'm in Cisne, Southern Illinois, PM me here on the forum, respond to this thread, or use CL to respond to me! AMA!
Thank you!!!

Nice car.

I don't know much about old thunderbird pricing, but if it's worth anywhere close to that, you should be looking to trade it for a bus PLUS cash.

Thank you!

I looked around a lot online and the prices seem to vary wildly on 69 Tbirds, so since it runs great and everything, I gave it what runs as a middling price. But now that you mention it, you're right, I posted this late last night and wasn't thinking very clearly.


I'd like to restate that I'd like 12K or bus and enough cash to fill in the blanks. But I WILL negotiate/haggle. My conversion budget is around 10K.

The price of this car is down to $4000 cash!
I would also do a trade for a good bus!

Thanks for suggesting Hemmings! I'll consider putting it in there!

It was a California car, very little rust, a guy who checked out my car came with a magnet and ran it over the edge of the outside checking for rust and bondo LOL! Gave it an A grade.

Shame you already have a project going, I guess I should have reposted this sooner! ahhhh well...

LOL Nice irony...

Ahhh I envy you... I want to start my bus project, I have pretty much enough to buy a bus, got some trips planned this month and next month, but I haven't started my conversion project yet, and selling this car would help a lot with funds...

Lemme ask you: do you think $4000 is outrageous or something? No one seems to be able to afford it, and I've dropped the price below 50% of what Haggerty.com says an average car like this is worth.

Of course everyone wants a bargain, but if you were interested in buying a classic car, would you find this price reasonable? Or am I just being greedy?

One guy who owns his OWN RV park tried to get me to take 1800 for it...
