This 1962 Ford Thunderbird has proper V8 power, fun vintage features, and a cool black and white total package. So when you can pick up one of the most distinctive T-bird generations around for a terrific price, you know you need to dig into the details of this deal.
You can see from a distance that the coupe has timeless appeal with its white body and black roof. So people will be instantly attracted to the car well before you park it. There's also a more modern clearcoat luster to give this two-tone added appeal. Even the whitewall tires are part of the black and white appeal. These third-gen T-Birds are also for the detail lovers, and this one doesn't disappoint. The front end is all about the hood, bumper, and grille creating an integrated look that sharply cuts the traffic ahead. The full-length trim is a hallmark of these stylish machines, and it's complete here as it hides the door handles and creates a swoopy style that ends in a hint of tailfin. The rear continues this awesome style with large taillights that light up like afterburners.
Inside is more of that black and white appeal. In fact, the seat upholstery is fresh from the last few years, so it feels nice and fresh. The rest of the interior feels quite original, and that's a good thing in a Thunderbird. After all, this premium Ford was born with some great stylized and luxury features. Everyone gets individual bucket-like comfort, and the power driver's seat means yours easily adjusts to the ideal position. Plus, power windows let you easily and quickly show off the pillarless hardtop profile. There are also provisions for factory features like power locks and the AM radio. The wraparound dash and artful factory gauges are all part of the 1960s cruiser experience, so it's always great to find a T-bird as complete as this one.
This was born a Z-code coupe, so it's great to still have a big 390 cubic-inch V8 filling in the engine bay. Plus, the golden Thunderbird valve covers are freshly painted, and so they really grab attention when you open the hood. The consignor states the V8 was rebuilt within the last three years, and it certainly fires up and runs with the right kind of confidence. There are also upgraded components, like the distributor, intake, and Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. The three-speed automatic transmission was also part of the investment in this coupe, and so it has the smooth operation you want in a Thunderbird. There's are more nice driving features, like power steering, updated power brakes, and modern tread behind those classic whitewalls.
The appeal of this Thunderbird is as clear as black and white (literally). So don't miss this deal, call today!
