Description

There's really no such thing as an undesirable Thunderbird. But, in the name of variety, a lot of vintage 'birds have been transformed into insular hot rods that just aren't as cool as their pure, correctly restored peers. That's why this choice drop-top is so appealing. Benefitting from acute restoration, it wraps a smooth Ford-O-Matic transmission and 312 cubic inches of hot Thunderbird V8 in clean, all-American sheetmetal that's both attractive and timeless. In the market for a cool rendition of a legendary collector car? This awesome roadster could be the literal interpretation of your next classic!

AHEAD OF ITS TIME

Reflecting glowing Azure Blue two-stage paint under a choice of two white tops, this curvaceous convertible was carefully massaged back to life during a comprehensive restoration. Detailing begins with a bulleted bumper, which props a broad stainless grille under hooded headlights and a teal-trimmed Thunderbird header. Behind that header, a classy hood scoop leads stainless-trimmed glass that's cleared by polished wipers and reflected in a factory mirror. Below that greenhouse, a finned profile points factory skirts under ornate louvers and flowing ""Thunderbird"" scripts. And at the back of the car, chrome-trimmed, jet-inspired taillights center an intricate trunk emblem between tilted antennas and a second wraparound bumper that's fashioned around true-dual exhaust.

THUNDERBIRD SHOW, FORD-O-MATIC GO

Tilt the hood and you'll find 312 cubic inches of dressed Thunderbird power! Introduced in 1956, Ford's stout Y-block V8 remained an option in blue oval staples well into the mid-1970s. Bottom-side, a correct Ford-O-Matic transmission twists torque through a factory-spec rear axle. That drivetrain hangs in a sturdy, road-ready X-frame that's founded on a fully restored double A-arm front and solid axle rear suspension. At the corners of the car, power-assisted drum brakes complement good handling characteristics with solid and confident stops. Those handling characteristics are easily explored through factory power steering. Exhaust is managed by aluminized pipes, which span big resonators and throaty turbo mufflers. And power meets the pavement through attractive chrome wire wheels, which spin white-walled BF Goodrich Silvertown Radial tires.

TIMELESS IN WHITE

In keeping with this roadster's high performance theme, interior outfitting remains minimal, with high quality restoration pieces providing vivid white and turquoise vinyl plenty of long-term durability. Front and center, a stylish dash wraps engine-turned trim around rebuilt gauges, modern air conditioning and modern, direct-fit audio. At the middle of the floor, a petite chrome shifter floats between Thunderbird-themed floor mats. Ornate side panels front lucid power windows. And the driver spins a classy, Azure-laced steering wheel.

A highly desirable drop-top that wraps well-maintained restoration around a storied V8 and a smooth, automatic transmission, this fabulous T-Bird offers a little something for everyone. And what's better: it's exactly the kind of classic that provides endless fun on the highway and celebrity status in the parking lot. Don't miss the opportunity to experience a stellar piece of American automotive history!
