1960 Ford Thunderbird
The first generation of Thunderbird was introduced as a smaller 2 seater sporty convertible similar to the Chevrolet Corvette. However just a couple years later the 2nd generation introduced a rear seat and refocused itself on driving comforts and convenience over high speed performance. This was the creation of the "personal luxury car" and would become Ford's focus for the Thunderbird for years to come. This would remain the case until the final generation when the retro styled modern vehicle trend was started and they returned to their 2 seater designs. This nice 1960 Ford Thunderbird belonged to the 2nd generation which was known as the square birds. These years saw huge market success selling 4 times as much as the previous generation and was the first individual model line to receive Motor Trends Car of the Year. This very cool convertible is in good shape and has had a body on restoration. It was originally Black but has since been repainted in a two tone Teal and pearl White. This is paired with a Black power convertible top that has all updated controls and electronics. This model had the double front headlights and triple taillights which are all working properly. It has been entirely rechromed and the original bumpers have an excellent shine. It has the continental kit in rear with Thunderbird logo and emblems. It also comes with the hard cover parade boot which covers the rear seats when the top is down. Other neat add-ons include the rear fender skirts which are painted to match. The car rides on wire wheels wrapped with wide white wall radials.
Under the hood the motor has been swapped out for a fuel injected 4.6L police interceptor motor out of a 2004 Crown Victoria. A majority of the motor is painted Ford Blue and it is topped off with a Thunderbird Special Interceptor air cleaner. The motor runs strong with no issues. It is paired with an automatic transmission that also came out of the Crown Vic. It has power brakes with discs up front as well as power steering. It has all new suspension components and all new exhaust. Other nice features include the aftermarket aluminum radiator with electric fans.
The interior has been entirely redone in a Black ultra leather. It has dual bucket seats up front with a bench in the rear. It is finished out with a diamond tuck style and is in great condition. It has its original center console that stretches between the seats and mates up into the dash where you will find the Magic Aire AC/Heat controls. It has a polished tilt steering column with column shifter and is topped off with a woodgrain steering wheel. The dash has a mostly stock look with its original gauges, knobs and switches.
This unique square bird has a great look and is ready to go.
