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.

We at Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa are excited to present to you this awesome 1979 Ford Mustang Pace Car. The Indianapolis 500 is one of the most famous races in the world. On May 27th 1979 the Ford Mustang set the pace for this intense race that would become a Rick Mears victory. This car is a special edition that celebrates the Ford Mustang Pace Car.

All were finished in two-tone pewter and black with orange and red graphics. The front end featured a unique front air dam with fog lights, and a full-length cowl type hood scoop, while the rear end got the new for 1979 rear spoiler (all of these additions carried over to both the 1980 and 1981 Cobra). The black interior featured Recaro seats with patterned black and white inserts. Available were the 2.3 L (140 cu in) four-cylinder Turbo with mandatory four-speed manual transmission or the 4.95 L (302 cu in) V8 with either an overdrive 4-speed manual or three-speed automatic transmission. The production cars included a sunroof. However, the three actual pace cars were fitted with a T-top by Cars & Concepts of Brighton, MI. The removable panel roof option would not become an available option until the 1981 model year. This Mustang is fitted with a 5.0L 302 cubic inch V8 with a 4-speed manual transmission. The current owner has owned it since 2003 and has replaced the seats, headliner and carpet. The Mustang has dual exhaust conversion with catalytic converters.

1978 Ford F150 Ranger


Engine: 300 I6
Transmission: 4 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 69,145 ( actual )

We at Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa are excited to present to you this rustic 1978 Ford F150 Ranger. For 1978, the appearance of the F-Series changed the most since 1972, when the split grille was overhauled in favor of a single-piece grille insert design. Much larger than before, the grille no longer incorporated the headlights, turn signals or the "F O R D" letters. The headlights were located in housings beside the grille, and the park/turn signal lamps were located below them. Additionally, a new chrome-plated letter set reading "F O R D" could now be seen on the hood immediately above the grille. In 1977 (1978 models), the round headlight design was retained for the Custom trim level. A luxury "Lariat" trim was also introduced for 1978; Ranger, Ranger XLT, and Ranger Lariat trim levels incorporated rectangular headlights with optional chrome headlight bezels and the chrome grille insert. Dual Fuel tanks in the bed became standard. For 1979, round headlights were replaced by rectangular ones on all trim levels, and the surrounding grille insert that framed the headlights was now available in either black or chrome to match that of the aluminum grille frame. Also new for 1978 was the option of part- or full-time four-wheel-drive on SuperCab models. Full-time four-wheel drive utilized a chain-driven NP203 transfer case, while part-time four-wheel drive was equipped with a gear-driven NP205. This truck is a piece of history is ready to go to work with its 300 cubic inch straight six cylinder engine mated to an automatic transmission. Options include AC, AM/FM radio, cd player, spare tire, cloth interior and aluminum/alloy wheels.
