This 1959 Ford Thunderbird Tudor Hardtop is believed to have been owned by famous baseball commissioner Allan “Bud” Selig and even bears the original Knippel-Selig Ford badge on the rear decklid. Under the hood is a 300 HP 352 CID 4bbl 8-cylinder engine. The transmission is a Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic which was also original to the vehicle. Rear axle ratio is 3.10:1. Features include: power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, and aftermarket AM/FM radio. The car currently rides on 15″ chrome Cragar SS wheels, but a set of white walls mounted on original steel wheels with hubcaps are also available. In the last several years the following have been replaced: brakes – including master cylinder, fuel pump, fuel tank. The car was painted in its current metallic blue in 1990, while the interior received new upholstery and carpeting in 1998. The trunk liner has also been replaced. This Thunderbird also comes with both rear fender skirts and a Thunderbird marketing brochure from 1959!
