Thanks for the corrections, Dale. The owner's sign in the window stated 39K . I wish the owners were there, as, if they were, I would have included them in the video. I do not like to open doors, even in the car corral, if the owners do not give me permission first. This is basic car show etiquette. In my experience as an inspector, seams usually have  seam sealer from the factory to protect welded metal from rusting, before the bodies are dip painted or sprayed. As an owner of a '60 Bird, you would definitely know more about this car than I would. If you note, I left the question of the interior open because I was not 100% sure. All of my videos are shot " on the fly ", not rehearsed in a studio and studied in depth before the shoot. This is how you can get videos within a week of an event.  Thanks for commenting Dan.

Who is the Lady doing this video?  Did she not talk to the owner of the '60 T-Bird?  I was at the Ford National Show on July 26th and because I own a 1960 T-Bird just like this one I did talk to the owner about it....  This was a 139K mile car.  The wear on the steering wheel and brake pedal would tell anyone that it has more than 39K miles on the car.  Old odometers do not register 100K miles, they just start over.  It was mostly original paint, but had been touched up/repaired in several places, those paint runs on the trunk were not from the factory.  There was no "DOPE" or Bondo on the trunk lip, that was where the old rubber seal had held water and caused the paint to wear off.   It has been reupholstered by the previous owner.  It does not even have the correct 1960 Upholstery Design/pattern.    Let's get the Facts before you Make Fake Reports.  The owner and his son sat near the car both days that I attended.   Please make an effort to be factual.   $17k was the asking price, I believe it did sell late on Saturday afternoon.
