1962 Ford Thunderbird Description

Terrific paint, big V8 power, and an overall solid investment to create a well-executed classic personal luxury vehicle. Who knew the distinction of this 1962 Ford Thunderbird could be so affordable?This is truly art on wheels. Today no one would be able to produce the complicated sheetmetal and chrome that Ford used to create their top-of-the-line luxury car. This is the perfect merger of soft curves with sharp creases. It starts up front where a sleekly rounded hood ends at a point to give the Thunderbird a true beak. The roofline profile of this coupe starts with a sporty windshield rake and abruptly finishes in sharp turn back towards the body. And it all ends where the well-creased tailfins hover above the jet engine-like taillights. You even see these two worlds of sharpened and smoothed on the factory wheel covers. It takes an artist's hands to create such an interesting design, and it also takes a car company willing to spend big bucks to get it on the road. This kind of distinction is why something this unique has survived so nicely for more than half a century. The sheetmetal still looks amazing. Plus, someone has taken the time to invest in bold shade of Sunset Orange with a terrific clearcoat shine. And even the details are right from the whitewall tires to complete chrome line that runs from the front point to the tailfin. The factory-correct light beige interior is an attractive mix of '60s cool design and high-end luxury. Buckets seats and a console were the only way to get your third-generation Thunderbird. There's plenty of room in back for full-sized adults, but in a personal luxury cruiser like this, the driver is the one that matters the most. The factory steering wheel has an artful design. Beautiful round gauges have an elegant look with each in their own pod. Plus, the band of anodized aluminum trim stretching across the dash and into the doors adds the same kind of shiny distinction that the chrome does for the exterior. You also should take note of some nice modern upgrades in the center of the car that include an AM/FM/cassette stereo, an auxiliary gauge trio, and a large tach.When you open the hood, you can see that there was money spent in customizing the engine bay. Painting components the exterior orange as well as adding finned valve covers and air topper perfectly capture the Thunderbird's premium and sporty dual nature. So you know you'll love showing off every inch of this classic. But more than just look great, Ford's large 390 cubic-inch V8 was advertised with 300 horsepower on tap. Today it now also features an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, so it certainly has the power to move this cruising coupe around with ease. The V8 fires up nicely with an authoritative hum out of the dual exhaust that seems perfect for this mature T-Bird. The Cruise-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes all work in harmony to help keep the ride luxurious. Complete with plenty of maintenance records, owner's manual, and other paperwork, this is a beautiful T-Bird with a standout presence. So you need to hurry because complete classic style might never be this affordable again. Call now!
