Mid-60s Thunderbirds, particularly convertibles like this 1966 model, are seeing some recent gains in the market, and this is a great car for cruising and casual shows. With a cool period color, all the luxury and comfort options, and a smooth 428, it delivers personal luxury unlike anything else of the era. Drawing on both the original Ford Retractable hardtops and the Lincoln Continental 4-door convertibles, this big Bird is the epitome of Fords high-end products in 1966. The restoration was finished years ago, but this car still owns eyeballs everywhere it goes. Wearing bright turquoise paint, it looks a mile long yet incomparably sleek. Workmanship is quite good throughout and with that much sheetmetal, there are plenty of places for things to go wrong. Fortunately the guys in charge of the restoration didnt miss a thing. Note how well the doors line up with the quarters, the deep shine, and the total absence of waves that would suggest significant bodywork underneath. Trim is surprisingly restrained on this lovely Thunderbird, but details like the fender-mounted turn signal indicators, faux hood scoop, and the finely detailed grille are in excellent shape. And yes, the sequential turn signals are fully functional. The interior features new Italian leather upholstery, and combined with just a few woodgrained accents and stainless trim, it makes this feel like an adults car in every way. The bucket seats offer gorgeous upholstery with a wonderful combination of pleats and quilted seating surfaces, and the rear seat with its wrap-around look is perhaps even more inviting. A ribbon-style speedometer and small round pods for the auxiliary gauges are an incredible piece of design, as is the swing-away steering wheel that really makes a difference in ease of entry. Check out the little tricks like the original clock replaced with a digital piece and a newer AM/FM stereo head unit. The insanely complex top mechanism on these cars is a ballet of electro-mechanical automation, although this one has been upgraded with linear actuators in place of the original hydraulic rams, so its more reliable. Most importantly, it works properly with zero issues and the black convertible top fits well. The trunk is also correctly finished with gray mats and plenty of space (provided you keep the top up). Fords 428 cubic inch Q-code V8 was optional equipment in the 1966 Thunderbird and makes the kind of leisurely torque you need in a luxury machine like this. Fully rebuilt about 5000 miles ago, it has a few upgrades such as an Edelbrock carburetor, HEI distributor, and a giant aluminum radiator to keep things cool. Theres also plenty of Ford Blue paint and an open-element air cleaner proudly advertising the big block underneath. This big Bird uses a C6 3-speed automatic transmission linked to 3.00 gears in the 9-inch rear, so it just loafs along at highway speeds without breaking a sweat. A new dual exhaust system gives it a burbly V8 rumble thats got a bit of muscle car DNA in it, and with disc brakes becoming standard equipment in 1965, its a fine road car in every sense of the word. Right-sized 215/75/15 whitewall/redline radials look great on those vintage Cragar mags. 60s convertibles like this are red hot right now, so dont delay and get this awesome Thunderbird into your garage.

For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our St. Louis showroom is a 1966 Ford Thunderbird. This gorgeous Thunderbird is painted in a late model Ford color named Wedgewood Blue Metallic and it looks amazing on this luxurious bird. Originally Silver Mink which isnt too terribly far away from the new color. Inside is a black interior in terrific condition and equipped with all the Thunderbird goodies. Equipment consists of Power windows, Power seats, Air Conditioning, Telescopic steering column and of course everyones favorite; the swing away steering wheel. Power comes from a smooth running and torquey 390 V8. Both the 390 and the C6 automatic were rebuilt during the detailed restoration in 2008. The restorers did a fantastic job with this one and had it a bit easier due to the solid state of the car. This Thunderbird is still retaining all its original metal. The car had obviously been very well cared for over the years and it shows with the original interior. Recently fitted with new front disc brakes. This one drives as well as it looks. One of the coolest features of the Thunderbird debuted in 1965 with sequential taillights and the set on this car are working as they should. 1966 was the last year for this Thunderbird generation and the world would be in for some substantial changes going forward making the 66 one of the last greats! For more information on this well restored 1966 Ford Thunderbird, call 618-271-3000 or swing by our St. Louis showroom. To view 100+ HD photos and video, visit www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
Our Milwaukee showroom is very proud to present this absolutely stunning 1966 Ford Thunderbird. This T-Bird comes equipped with a 390 V8 engine, and 4 speed automatic transmission. The convertible top borrowed the opening mechanism from the same era Lincoln Continental where the trunklid would open electrically in a single piece, hinged at the back of the vehicle, then the fabric top would fold down and disappear beneath the trunklid. The mechanism was originally used on the Ford Fairlane 500 Skyliner hardtop convertible of the late 1950s. Opening the trunk on convertibles for storage required that the lid be opened electrically, without deploying or retracting the folding convertible top. In 1966, a flatter hood, re-shaped front fenders, new headlight buckets, new egg crate grille with large Thunderbird emblem, new bumper guards, a single bumper bar, and painted roll pan replaced the previous two model years two-piece front bumper. The rear taillights were revised, now a 3 piece unit going the full width across the rear, the backup light now located in the center section replaced the formerly rear roll pan mounted lamps. The transmission used on early build 390 V8 equipped T-Birds was the Cruise-O-Matic MX, however late build 390 and all 428 V8 equipped T-Birds had the new C6 3 speed automatic installed. This 1966 Thunderbird is for sale in our Milwaukee Showroom and can be seen at www.GatewayClassicCars.com; call (262) 891-4253 or email us at email@example.com for additional information.
