Classic Car Overview

1963 Ford Thunderbird

Mokena, IL Red · 8,735 miles
Outstanding

1963 Thunderbird

VERY RARE

M-Code Sports Roadster

Show Car

Thunderbird Sports Roadster production numbered 1,427 units in 1962, but just 455 in 1963, making them rare birds indeed. Even rarer were Thunderbirds ordered with the monstrous 390-cubic inch tri-power V-8, which was designated by an M in the VIN; thus resulting in the nickname of M-Code cars. These cars breathed through a set of three Holley two-barrel carburetors and put out some 340 horsepower at the crankshaft, which is to say they were plenty capable of shaming any Corvette-driving challengers.

Ford turned out just 37 M-Code Sports Roadsters in 1963.


There are over 120 pictures of this car in the ad below, including detailed exterior, interior, engine, trunk and undercarriage. Scroll down after the description and let them load on your computer, it will take some time because of the size.
