Q-code... in cars it means the ultimate sleeper, and so this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau Coupe might just be the ultimate Q-ship Q-code. After all, it has a terrific vintage look, classic loaded interior, and a big 428ci V8 lying in wait.
This coupe has a first impression of very vintage elegance. The factory-correct Dark Turquoise Metallic was refreshed later in life, and it still retains a nice gloss in the sunlight. And the special Landau roof is covered in premium white vinyl and it has a jewel-like ornamentation. This was the era when the Thunderbird really looked like Lincoln had made them with the way the front bumper follows the contour of the angular nose, and the rear one surrounds the full-width taillights. There are even more great details, like the elegant Thunderbird wheel covers, rear fender skirts, whitewall tires, and the hallmark sequential rear turn signals. So the first impression is pure class.
The turquoise interior sets the tone nicely for the factory-correct Aqua interior. So this is a well harmonized package inside and out. Not only does it look good in the main areas, like the seats, door panels, and carpeting, but also the details, like the working clock and map lights. This was all about providing individual luxury, and everyone has their own bucket seat - including the rear. But this T-bird gives priority to the driver. That's why the dash and center console are a seamless design focused around you. The dual-spoke steering wheel is not only on Ford's cool swing-away mount, but it also gives you a fantastic view of the space-age gauges. The AM radio is still cranking out tunes, the power locks are functioning correctly, and the wood-like trim is in great shape to make this space classically elegant. This has smooth-action power windows, so you never have to leave the driver's set to show off the full pillarless profile. Plus, there are provisions for R134a air conditioning (will need servicing) if you want an added cool breeze.
This is the kind of engine bay you'll love showing off, because a proper Q-code T-bird means Ford's mighty 428 cubic-inch V8. We love the way the big blue block and bold air topper look against the dark engine bay. And the belts, wires, and hoses all show the right maintenance. But more than just look nice, this was built to be driven. That's why this big block has a newer Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and there's an upgrade to an aluminum radiator to help keep it running cool. The dual exhaust lets the V8 exhale with dignified authority, and that's the theme for the whole feeling on the road. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes with discs up front make this a smooth and authoritative classic.
This is a cool big block T-bird with plenty of extra power and panache to offer. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call today!!!
