Group,

 

First post here but I have a 79 t-bird that was my sister's, actually still titled in her name and she was 1st owner. About 65,000 miles on it.  Some rust but otherwise in pretty good shape. I was thinking about just fixing it up for my teenage daughters  but didn't know if it was worth more than  a couple thousand dollars, if that?  Just wondering if it is worth preserving or just run it?  To me it seems like a good starter car for them, big, safe.

Has it been running and driven regularly? If so it’s probably fine but I would replace all the hoses, belts, fuel lines and all fluids including oil, tranny fluid, brake fluid, power steering fluid and coolant.

It has been sitting since the early 2000's  I plan on puling the motor, replacing seals and gaskets in it and the tranny.  New rubber brake lines and probably replace calipers. Other than that it is in excellent shape.
