1961 Ford Thunderbird
Car for sale in Cranston, Rhode Island 02921
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This 1961 Ford Thunderbird nicely restored and is equipped with the 390/300hp 4-valve Z-code engine and Cruise-O-Matic transmission. The Thunderbird is well-equipped, including the Fat Man steering wheel, power windows, power locks, power steering, power brakes and fender skirts. This is a real nice, solid, rust-free car that still has the original interior which has been well maintained seemingly since new. The wheels have been replaced with 22" billet aluminum for a flare of extra style but the car does come with stock wheels, hubcaps and the quarter panel fender skirts all which go with the car at the time of sale.
We had purchased this vehicle several years ago while it was at the Barrett-Jackson auction which was held close to us in Connecticut and since that time we have made some improvements and repairs to the Thunderbird including; front & rear shocks, installed front disc brakes, new double brake cylinder, carburetor, brake lines and power booster, starter, fuel pump, E3 plugs and MSD wires and several other improvements and repairs. Really a good looking and fine running vehicle, take a look at the photos and I think you will like what you see.
