According to the listing, the car is in "okay condition and it does not run/drive." It has a V8 engine and an automatic transmission.
Municibid notes that proceeds from the auction will go back to the State of New Jersey; the funds could be used for road maintenance, public safety initiatives, and community programs.
The baby blue Thunderbird is located in Trenton, and it's being sold "as is, where is."
Many municipalities across the Garden State have gone digital with their auctions of items that are no longer needed.
