1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible
Ford's Thunderbird went through a lot of changes through the years. From the small birds of the 50s to the Super and Turbo Coupes of the 80s. They have filled every need, be it a sports car, muscle car or luxury vehicle, and they have done it all well. First designed to compete with the Chevrolet Corvette in the 2-seater roadster market, the 1965 is a much larger, higher optioned big block cruiser than its predecessor.
Why This Car Is Special
This Thunderbird was a barn find that has been revived and made road worthy again. It has great options and a lovely color combination.
The 300 horsepower 390 CID V8 engine still resides under the hood and is backed by an automatic transmission shifted on the column. This Thunderbird has a very clean engine compartment and options including power steering and power brakes. The power top on these Thunderbirds are an engineering feat, and this one is paired with power windows.
Bucket seats, center console and wrap around backseats make these mid-sixties Thunderbirds a crowd favorite. This particular car has a black vinyl interior paired with a white soft convertible top. The sliding speedometer works as it should and the miles of chrome trim is in excellent condition. These cars are comfortable and incredibly stylish on the inside and were way ahead of their time.
The Bullet Thunderbird, as they were known, is a streamlined aerodynamic car. It is a fairly large car, but the sharp edges and long low body make it look like it's moving, even when sitting still. This Ford has the fender skirts, white wall tires and factory hub caps that give it an upscale look. The red paint is in great shape, as is the chrome, trim and convertible top.
These Thunderbirds don't last long and this one will be no exception. If you're looking for a mid-sixties T-bird to call your own, give this car a close look.
