1975 Ford F150

1975 Ford F150


Engine: 400 V8
Transmission: C6 Automatic
Mileage: 3,592 ( since rebuilt )

We are happy to offer for sale in our Saint Louis Gateway Classic Cars Showroom this awesome, frame off restored 1975 Ford F150 4X4. This 4-wheel drive Ford looks reminiscent of the old school Big Foot monster truck, with its big fat radial tires and lift kit. The green and white exterior paint provide a classic 70’s look, and the green actually has a hint of metallic flake that helps it sparkle in the sunlight. The cloth bench seat is out of a late model truck but fits in well with the rest of the stock interior. Looking at the gauge cluster you will see white faced gauges, which are normally black, this provides a sportier look to the overall interior. This 75’ Ford is powered by a 400 CID V8 engine with a new valve train with lifters, cam, valve springs, and timing chain. Headman headers flow to the full dual exhaust that dump out on each side, in front of the rear tires, and produce a truly awesome sound. A C6 automatic transmission has been employed to shift the power to transfer case, which in turn puts the power to all four corners when desired. The 33x12.50 mammoth radial tires are mounted to 15-inch Weld aluminum/alloy wheels, which fit this truck and this build style to a T. The odometer reads 3,592, which represents the mileage on the truck since the restoration was complete. Options for the 1975 Ford F150 4X4 include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM Radio with Cassette Player, Seat Belts, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Cloth Interior, Radial Tires, and Aluminum/Alloy Wheels. A lot of love and care went into this frame off restoration. This 75’ Ford F150 4X4 truck will not disappoint and will be a welcomed addition to any car show or off-road rally. To view this 1975 Ford F150 4X4 in greater detail, including HD pictures and an HD video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com or our St. Louis Showroom.

1977 Ford Thunderbird

1977 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 400 CID V8
Transmission: C6 Automatic
Mileage: 43,492 ( undocumented )

This awesome 1977 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 7th generation T-Bird was released in 1977 as an intermediate model instead of the full size of the prior generation. Sales would see a huge jump in 77 selling more than 300k cars which was a very impressive feat for the T Bird. This example is a two-owner car that was bought from an estate sale about 7 years ago. The original bill of sale is included and shows the purchase price of almost 8000 dollars. A lot of money at that time but a small price to pay for all this car. The original paint is great condition with a great shine while the deep tan color is classic 70’s. The opera window is a nice touch and was something only available on the T Bird. Under the hood is the original 400 that gets the car down the road nicely. The low-end torque gets up to speed nicely while the 2.73 gear gives the car decent fuel efficiency. The transmission shifts as it should with smooth upshifts that are typical proof of these old cruisers. Open the door and one of the cleanest interiors I have seen is just asking to be sat in. The tan cloth is soft and feels more like velour than your typical cloth. The bucket seats have arm rest that fold up which is something I have not seen before. The dash is stuffed full of gauges keeping everything monitored giving you a sense of confidence over the typical warning lights. If you have been wanting one of these classic 70’s cruisers that goes down the road like only they can this 77 T bird is the perfect one. Options on this 1977 Ford Thunderbird include, AC, AM/FM, Power Windows, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Cloth Interior, Seat Belts, and with Radial Tires. To view this 1977 Ford Thunderbird, including an HD video, at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For more information call the showroom at (812) 294 1555 or email louisville@gatewayclassiccars.com.

1979 Ford Thunderbird

1979 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 351 CID V8
Transmission: C6
Mileage: 10,003 ( actual )

The Gateway Classic Cars Showroom of Saint Louis is proud to offer a very rare, unique and low mileage 1979 Ford Thunderbird Convertible. Ford did not offer a convertible for 1979, but a company in Beverly Hills CA called American Custom Coachworks, LTD decided the car would be better with a drop top. They engineered a way to remove the steel top, strengthen the body to accommodate the open roof, and add their custom power top mechanism that looks so good you'd think it came from the factory. The vehicle still retains the full use of the back seat and all over features including power windows. This allows for the ultimate 4 seater convertible that will certainly stand out from the crowd. It is believed that only about 1000 conversions were completed in 1979, and this one has got to be one of the best preserved examples. With only 10,003 miles on the odometer, this T-Bird has had an easy life. Used mostly for parades, and shows, this T-Bird has countless awards to boast, and condition you'd expect from such a low mileage vehicle. Maintenance has not be neglected, as this vehicle has been given regular checkups and sports a clean bill of health. The vehicle is ready to continue its duty as a show vehicle, or could easily be driven more regularly as a stylish cruiser. This example is finished in a beautiful Bronze exterior and has a white convertible top. Inside is Buckskin colored upholstery which screams 1970s luxury. Power equipment is everywhere: seats, windows, steering, brakes, top, and even cruise control. With a 351 under the hood, and an automatic transmission, the T-Bird cruises wonderfully on the highway or around town. If you're looking for a show stopper, here it is, and you likely won't find another one like it. You can see this 1979 Ford Thunderbird Convertible in greater detail in our St. Louis showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 618-271-3000 or stl@gatewayclassiccars.com with any questions.

1960 Ford Thunderbird

1960 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 352 CID V8
Transmission: Automatic
Mileage: 345 ( since rebuilt )

This 1960 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 1960 Thunderbird was the last year for what is now known as the Square birds. A rather distinctly different car than original baby birds as the second-generation cars are much bigger and can seat 4 adults comfortably. This beautiful red example has gone through a pain staking restoration with the finished Bird being one the best I have seen. Lugged out of a junk yard 15 years ago this was a solid bird to begin with. The red paint was laid down nice and smooth with the result looking like glass. The trim and chrome on the car are exceptionally clean and remind you why these birds are classic late 50’s. Those classic wire knock offs are the perfect fit on this 60 Bird. Under the hood you will find a very clean engine bay that is as clean as they come. The period corrects 352 with its true to form yellow valve covers really putting their exclamation point under the hood. The Cruise-O-Matic 3 speed is a smooth shifting transmission that handles all the power of the 352 with ease. Inside this plush 4-seater a fresh interior has been done in red and white vinyl making for a great contrast. The middle console that flows into the back separating the buckets is one of the coolest features to come in a factory car. If you have been wanting to get yourself into a square bird that is flashy and luxurious this one must be on your list. Options on this 1960 Bird include, AM Radio, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Vinyl Interior and Knock Off Wheels wrapped in Bias PLY White Wall Tires. To view this car in full detail with HD pictures and video on this 1960 Ford Thunderbird call our Louisville showroom at (812)-294-1555, or email us at Louisville@Gatewayclassiccars.com
