Classic Car Overview

This 1960 Ford Thunderbird will remain a favorite cruiser for decades to come simply because cars like this never go out of style. With a great color combination, a smooth and powerful V8 engine, and room for five, this T-Bird remains first-class transportation any way you look at it. Even by 1960, the bold pastels of the 50s were passing out of fashion, and quieter, more sophisticated colors were taking their place. In the same way, the 4-seater Thunderbird was a more grown-up vehicle, more practical but no less beautiful than the original 2-seater. Dramatic styling embraced sweeping elements stamped right into the sheetmetal, ranging from the curve that dips down through the doors to the pointed side streaks that need no chrome to emphasize the cars length. The finish of the code R Moroccan Ivory paint is excellent, with a big investment in the final finish thats all out of proportion to the cars sticker price. The net result is a classically elegant Thunderbird that stands out from the crowd simply by virtue of its quality. All the chrome is in excellent shape, particularly the large bumper/grille assembly up front and the unique taillight surrounds that show you that Ford was still fascinated by the Jet Age. The handsome red and white interior is Ford design at its finest. Fresh seat covers, matching door panels, and red carpets give it a lot of personality, especially with that beautiful white steering wheel in the middle of it all. Forget fake wood and trim, in the 1960s, brushed stainless was king, and the textured dashboard, center stack, and door panel trim show off a variety of surfaces that youll never get tired of looking at from behind the wheel. The factory-issued AM radio remains in the dash with the controls for the power windows neatly grouped on the console. The redesigned 4-seat Thunderbird carries everything youll need for a long road trip in a beautifully restored trunk, complete with tailored carpet with white piping and matching spare tire cover. You can see that there was a lot of money spent on this car everywhere you look. The 352 cubic inch FE V8 under the hood powers this Bird with ease, and it has been dressed to impress with chrome valve covers and air cleaner. The smooth-running V8 delivers easy performance and effortless cruising thanks to a new Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, especially when linked to a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission and a set of 3.10 gears out back. It looks like the engine was pulled for the paint job and theres correct black engine enamel on the block, so it really stands out against the white paint around it. Underneath, the floors are impressively clean and solid, critical on a unit-body car like this, and theres a new dual exhaust system with mellow-sounding mufflers that are appropriately muted. Obviously this car has never been rusty or even in need of major surgery, so it rides smoothly and confidently down the highway on 215/75/14 wide whites with great-looking wire wheel covers. With second-generation Thunderbirds coming into their own as collectors items, I wouldnt expect this unusually clean specimen with to stick around for long. If this is your kind of ride, dont hesitate and call today!
