No offense taken.  Its not my car.  It is definitely not everyone's taste.  For 
those that are into this era of car, this is a good one.  The Town Landau 
package was a big deal back then.  It dramatically increased the price of the 
car.  The 77 T-Bird was a huge seller when it came out.  In 1976, Ford sold 
53,000 T-Birds.  But, in 1977 when this new body style came out, they sold 
318,000 of them.  

He also has a 1971 Pontiac Grand Prix that is BEAUTIFUL with only 40,000 miles. 
 It is spectacular and worth significantly more than this T-Bird.   He just 
recently bought a 1983 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham Coupe with super low miles 
and he had to sell one car -- which is why the T-bird is for sale. 

I think his price is too high.  But, I have seen others like this sell for 
$7500 and even up to $9,000.

I saw a beautiful 64 TBird convertible in traffic yesterday morning. 
Might be 65 or 66. Not sure how many years they had the big rectangular tail 
lights but I think 64 was the first year and by 67 they had changed a lot, if I 
recall correctly.  63 still had the big round tail lights. 
Not my primary choice in color as it was a rusty brown orange color with a 
black top but it sure looked in nice shape. I could go for one of those.

No offense to you or  your brother, Don, but the 77 does not do much for me now.
I almost bought one when it was new but my wife talked me out of it. She 
thought it too big for her to drive. We bought a 77 Monarch instead. It was not 
among the top cars that Ford ever built but we kept it a long time and it 
served us reasonably well. Lousy handling etc but it looked good (for the time 
anyway). It was white 2door with a white quarter vinyl roof and a dark red
