Third generation T-Birds combines the beautiful chromed fins of the 50s with the smoother, cleaner lines of the 60s into what many consider the best-looking Thunderbird ever. This one is almost completely factory original and will really take you back there when you drive it. Check it out. From the side, this car looks like a bullet or a rocket. The nose tapers down from the hood and up from the bottom to form the tip, and the upper edge of the fenders and door trimmed in chrome makes it look like its flying through the air. From the front, a big chrome bumper wraps up around the edges of quad headlights with a toothy grill in between them. An iconic Thunderbird flies just over the grill and a hood scoop follows closely behind it. At the back of the car, the fins end in two big round taillights that look like afterburners with another Thunderbird badge between them and a simple bumper underlining everything. The vinyl landau hardtop is original and showing its age a bit while the Silver Mink Metallic paint has probably been recoated at some point in its life, which is likely why it looks so good. Open the door and you will find a stylish interior that wraps around the driver and passenger in a way that is unique and perfect for this personal luxury car . It is all original and in really good shape but is showing its age in a couple places, mostly on the door panels but it shows the car has been cared for all these years. The steering wheel is a work of art in wood and chrome with a Thunderbird center button. Wood wraps around the interior from the doors, across the dash, and down over the center console. Three round gauges trimmed in chrome are set into that wood with the speedometer in the center. Control knobs run across the bottom and the ventilation controls, including those for the factory A/C are in the center. Power window switches are set into the wood on the center console and a nice storage compartment with a padded lid makes a comfortable armrest. The seats are comfortable too and are trimmed in two tone vinyl with pleated center sections with smooth side bolsters. Under the hood you will find a 390 cubic inch engine that is believed to be the original motor sitting down in an all original engine bay. It is a Z code motor so would be the 300-horsepower version, and it is completely stock, including the carb and intake. It runs smooth and sounds great. The air filter has a chrome topper and there are chrome valve covers as well. Alternators appeared on T-Birds for the first time in 1963 and the power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels mounted on leaf springs. Coil springs and a sway bar up front offer a good ride with nice handling and power brakes provide good stopping power. The rubber meets the road through 215/75R14 white wall tires mounted on steel wheels with full center spin hub caps. Unique styling with smooth lines, chrome edged fins and a smooth running 390 cubic inch powerhouse. This is a personal luxury car 60 style. Come on down and check it out.

1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible The Thunderbird and the Corvette have a long and sorted history, with both initially competing for the same customer space. Eventually the Corvette went to racing, and the Thunderbird became the boulevard king. The ultimate getaway car from the kids with a two-seat configuration (rear seat is there but covered by cowlings) with a convertible cruiser, it became the it car for early 1960s suburbia. With design queues courtesy of the jet age, its bullet like front appearance, and jet engine taillights was keying into the upwardly mobile middle class, and growing suburbia. Offered for sale is a 1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible in Chestnut Brown exterior and black vinyl interior. 1963 was the last production year of the third generation of T-birds. Of the total production of 214,375 units produced, on 5,913 were convertibles. Exterior A Chestnut Brown bullet shaped model with a white convertible, presents in good overall condition. The mechanicals for this pop top are a marvel of engineering, as the whole long expansive trunk section, and the top become involved on the up and down operation and storage. Paint matching Sport Roadster style tonneaus are attached to the back each bucket, and swoop from the headrest to the rear deck, creating an aerodynamic bat mobile look. Chrome and bright work are correct, and in fine shape. Wide white sidewall tires wrap original chrome spoke wheels, which have knockoff hubs. 3 chromed faux jet intake appliqus adorn each exterior door panel and add to the jet look. Interior Black vinyl original to the car is seen, and is in full glory, with near nice bucket seats in front, and a bench in the back. (Although covered by the buckets rear headrests and Sport Roadster Tonneau) A sleek console makes its way to the dash, and houses the vinyl covered console glove box, and ashtray. Horizontal ribbed aluminum snakes its way up the dash and proceeds to spread out from side to side over the dash front, and houses the heater and air flow controls, light switches, logos and a very cool swing away steering wheel. Above this are 2 black vinyl winglike structures (can you say bird?) that form the padded dash top. A speaker, radio, and a 3-gauge cluster is within these swoops, and all appear in excellent condition. Power windows, power steering, power drivers seat, and power brakes are installed options. Drivetrain The car presented has gone through a thorough mechanical restoration which includes a rebuilt transmission with new front and rear seals attached to the original 390ci engine. A complete motor tune up including new plugs, points, condenser and car rebuild was performed. New brakes on all four corners, including front discs with power booster, replaced the worn discs and drums. The main axle bearings and rear wheel bearings were refreshed with new suspension bearings and complete front end alignment. The engine head gaskets were replaced with new as well as all hoses and belts. New shocks and HD helper springs completed the suspension restoration. A very, cool retro midcentury, last year of a truly iconic convertible, the 1963 offers an opportunity to own an immediately recognized classic for a below market price. So why not relive that fantasy of leading the jet set lifestyle, driving a jet age style automobile, flying around town, turning heads while doing so.
1963 Ford Thunderbird Coupe Flight Plan Cleared. Proceed to Thunderbird reads the advertising, and indeed very apropos as during this time we were ushering in the jet age, and Ford seized upon this trend by working it into their design. In particular with the Thunderbird, AKA this year as The Bullet Bird with its turbine like rear, and the air piercing bullet aerodynamic front shape. For consignment a bit of coup dtat on the original design in the form hinting of a resto-mod. Slammed, tubbed and painted over chrome in just the right spots gives this Bird a real custom cruiser look, and feel. Code named Black Jack as the plate states, here at Classic Auto Mall we like to refer to the special classics with our own names, so without further adieu we give you The Black Bird . Exterior A completely stripped, metalworked, straightened, and repainted on PPG Tuxedo Black, now presents as factory on the exterior. Blackened bumpers, shaved doors and badging, the restorer left just the right amount of chrome trim on this car. Finishing off the corners with what appears to be a pointed hubcap version of American Racing Torq Thrust Wheels. Interior Screaming red leather all new and firm to the touch, covers the rear bench, and the front buckets. Add a bit of black piping, and now you can move to the center console which is flanked by the seats in front and fronted by the screaming red dash that has stunning black horizontal ribbed metal inserts, perfect gauges that all work (even the clock folks!) all power windows, and matching door panels. Look skyward and youll find a perfect headliner in .... Red... Looking at the floor it is awash in jet black carpeting. A shout out to the new aftermarket iPod/MP3/USB inputs as well as Satellite radio if you dare to subscribe to it. Speakers all around will satisfy any audiophile Drivetrain A flip of the hood and youll be greeted with an inundation of chrome and shine. A perfectly restored bay reflects...well...it reflects! The heart of which is the original 398ci 4-barrel V8 completely rebuilt at the 87,600 mile mark. Bore it over .030 and upgrade the valve guides and this baby will purr all day on unleaded fuel. Strapped to the back of this ultra-shiny mill, is a rebuilt TH700R4 automatic with overdrive, with which you can cruise for many miles at 75MPH and still get 16MPG. A Petronix distributor was added for extra reliability...look MA no points! Undercarriage Very solid with nice original floor pans, and frame rails. All original and rust free. Seen upfront are Performance slotted, cross drilled rotors with stainless nickel-plated calipers with newly inserted pads. Restored drums are seen on the rear, and a clean rust-free exhaust snakes its way from front to back. This is the ultimate head turner, and you will have to look long and hard to find another one like it. What a great concept, use a working mans Ford, and turn it into a very special cruiser with all the work done for you. Blackbird fly..into the light of the dark, black night.
