Classic Car Overview

1962 Ford Thunderbird Coupe The Jet age is in full swing, the country is riding high on Beatlemania, towering beehive hair doos, fur boots, and getting to the moon before the end of the decade. To mirror these times, Ford Motor Company put elements of design into the Thunderbird for 1962. For consignment, a multiple owner Bullet Bird born at the Wixom assembly plant, in October of 1961. With a jet age front, and thruster rear taillight configuration, all in original condition, this hardtop is perfect for a boulevard cruise that will certainly turn heads. Kelsey Hayes wheels and Coker tires, put your bandanna on and your Wayfarers and press the gas! Exterior A wonderfully textured Thunderbird Landau covered top all in black with the chromed Landau bars on the B pillars tops this beauty. Deep black, straight panels, nice chrome, good brite work, and correct badging awaits its key being turned so it can stretch its legs on some open highway. From its bullet nose to the thruster rear taillights straight steel with well minded gaps abound. Glass is all good and fender skirts on back frame Kelsey Hayes Chromed wires with knockoff hubs are wrapped in Coker medium white banded rubber. Certainly, one of the coolest designs to fly out of Detroit, Michigan. Interior A retro style wrap around dual eyebrow dash with medium beige padded vinyl, is mixed with a wide curving horizontal ribbed aluminum panel, that contains all the round chromed instruments and essential knobs and controls. This curving also continues downward to the center console, where the climate controls are located. This car is equipped with A/C, and it blows cold. The aluminum continues back and forms a cigarette station, and then turns to the medium beige vinyl, and creates a nice storage area and armrest. Medium beige vinyl covered bucket seats flank the console and are in very good condition. A flip of the setbacks forward, one finds a wonderful padded bench stretching from side to side. The headliner is also in good condition. On the doors more horizontal ribbed aluminum, and chromed power toggles for the locks and glass. The original radio was converted to AM/FM/iPod by Retro Radio. Drivetrain Under the hood the original 390ci V8 showing like new with THUNDERBIRD emblazoned silver valve covers. On top is a tri power carburetor that feeds the engine, while not original to the car it was an available option. Behind is a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, which the consignor states has been rebuilt due to it leaking and which has now been remedied. A 3.00:1 Ford 9-inch rear axle is installed from the factory. The engine bay is looking sporty and highly detailed right down to the FoMoCo orange wiper washer bag. Snazzy! Undercarriage Slight surface rust can be seen on some parts underneath; however it is minor. Unibody seam looks very healthy, as do the floor pans. Independent coil springs for the front ride provide, and leaf springs for the back along with power drum brakes all around all good. Drive-Ability A turn of the key and it comes to life instantly. Nice smooth acceleration, and good bias free braking, along with some snappy cornering and we have a winner. All functions were working swimmingly. An early 1960s suburbia car shows very nicely, and obviously has been garaged, and well cared for. An interior resembling a clear fluted glass of Moet en Chandon. A toast to this bullet bird ready to fly the Classic Auto Mall coop.
