Classic Car Overview

1962 Ford Thunderbird Coupe 1962 Ford Thunderbird design gave us the bullet bird with its rounded to a point front end to the twin turbine rear taillights, we were firmly into the jet age, beehive hairdos, fedora wearing, pipe smoking suburban dads, and the white picket fence surrounding the New England style house. From the day it was built, this car became a desirable collectable, and dripped with suburban success. For consignment a wonderful bullet bird first restored in 1997, then acquired by the current consigner in 2002. A few replacements for this car including upholstery, carpeting and headliner. A few other faults for the interior but overall a good example of the second gen bird from 1962. Exterior With its bullet like appearance this beautiful bullet bird features a horizontal styling line that runs from the point where the bumper and fender meet back through the door and angled down. Small horizontal bar chrome accenting rectangles were added in this area on the rear quarters. All bathed in a Silver Mink respray, with a few minor faults in the paint when looking closely, and some minor misalignment gaps of the doors, but overall, very nicely presenting. All chrome and trimmings are in excellent condition, and this includes the shaver styled front grille with its horizontal dual headlights and pointed crafted bumper for the front, along with a hood scoop with a chromed intake covering, and of course the iconic rounded bullet styled front quarters. Window surrounds are all excellent as are fender toppers badging, plus mirrors and handles. The hardtop of this car is painted in a contrasting Corinthian White respray. This was deemed a rare body color option for the 1962 bird. On back the jet engine styled taillights framed with large smoothed over bezels and another shiny bumper below. Fins are smaller and still holding on tight to this diminishing trend, but works well with the turbine styled taillights. Interior Two tone door panels await your entrance, and have a mixture of red vinyl all padded and nice with an interaction of aluminum panels and some horizontal chromed bars at the delineation of the red and aluminum panel. These doors and their ribbed center panel line up perfectly with the dash aluminum, which is on the dash front, swooping through the center of the otherwise red padded dash with dual eyebrow design. A swing away steering wheel allows for easy access for the driver and reveals a trio of round chrome bezel gauges embedded into the dash. We also see within the confines of the dash, controls for A/C, a power drivers seat, power windows and locks and an AM radio within the sculpted dash top that shows some cracks in the padding. Cascading downward from the futuristic dash is a center console which consists of more ribbed aluminum paneling and a snazzy red vinyl covered armrest/glove box covering also showing a crack or two. On either side are overstuffed red vinyl bomber style buckets with matching red tubs to sit within. Seating for an additional 3 is provided by the rear bench which has a nicely padded center giving the appearance of more buckets. Near perfect red carpeting floods the floors, and power windows for the back are also installed and working just great. A tightly whitey vinyl headliner floats above all this early 60s futuristic styling. Drivetrain A flip of the hood and we see a deep blue painted block and valve coverings as well as the air cleaner. A 390ci V8 is inserted into a fairly clean engine bay, with supple hoses and wiring. On top is a single 4-barrel carburetor, and on back a Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed automatic. The rear axle weighs in as a Ford 9-inch with 3.00 gearing. Undercarriage Underneath we can say it is gracefully aged with lots of patina, some road dirt and surface rust. In the back there are a few areas of invasive rust which you can inspect on the photos. Rear drum brakes with leaf springs are noted, and in front more drum brakes with coil springs are bolted on. A fair condition exhaust is snaking its way rearward. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and some nice smooth limitless acceleration for 4 barrels on top of the 390 cubes, smooth automatic shifting and braking. Also note the A/C is inoperable, as is the clock and gas gauge, and the consigner states the heater core has been passed due to a persistent leak. Modern space age styling...and the rare combo of the Silver Mink and Corinthian White, red interior with plenty of aluminum accenting. Welcome back to the future!
