Almost 50 years ago in 1969, Amos Minter realized he had more than just a passing interest in Ford Thunderbirds. You may even say it was an obsession, and not just with all Thunderbirds, but specifically with those produced in the years 1955 to 1957.
Mr. Minter was involved in all aspects of buying, selling and restoring these classic vehicles. With his unique vision for a business, he was determined to become the leading restoration service for Ford Thunderbirds, and the number of used vehicles in the southern part of the USA provided a lot of restoration possibilities.
Unlike the competition, Mr. Minter kept his focus on his passion, the 1955-1957 Ford Thunderbird. He created a unique niche company with a network of suppliers for Original Equipment Manufacturer components as well as all of the options, parts, and accessories that came along with these years and these models. With the focus on these particular models and years, the company became highly experienced at full restorations that other restoration services simply could not provide.
It didn’t take long for Minter Thunderbirds to become the talk of car collectors around the world. Customers from across the country and around the world were soon flying into Dallas to see the selection of fully restored cars and make a purchase.
With meticulous attention to detail in every component of the vehicle, as well as full restoration, these beautiful and iconic vehicles have become a must-have addition for any serious car collector.
