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.

Classic Car Overview

1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible The Thunderbird and the Corvette have a long and sorted history, with both initially competing for the same customer space. Eventually the Corvette went to racing, and the Thunderbird became the boulevard king. The ultimate getaway car from the kids with a two-seat configuration (rear seat is there but covered by cowlings) with a convertible cruiser, it became the it car for early 1960s suburbia. With design queues courtesy of the jet age, its bullet like front appearance, and jet engine taillights was keying into the upwardly mobile middle class, and growing suburbia. Offered for sale is a 1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible in Chestnut Brown exterior and black vinyl interior. 1963 was the last production year of the third generation of T-birds. Of the total production of 214,375 units produced, on 5,913 were convertibles. Exterior A Chestnut Brown bullet shaped model with a white convertible, presents in good overall condition. The mechanicals for this pop top are a marvel of engineering, as the whole long expansive trunk section, and the top become involved on the up and down operation and storage. Paint matching Sport Roadster style tonneaus are attached to the back each bucket, and swoop from the headrest to the rear deck, creating an aerodynamic bat mobile look. Chrome and bright work are correct, and in fine shape. Wide white sidewall tires wrap original chrome spoke wheels, which have knockoff hubs. 3 chromed faux jet intake appliqu??s adorn each exterior door panel and add to the jet look. Interior Black vinyl original to the car is seen, and is in full glory, with near nice bucket seats in front, and a bench in the back. (Although covered by the buckets rear headrests and Sport Roadster Tonneau) A sleek console makes its way to the dash, and houses the vinyl covered console glove box, and ashtray. Horizontal ribbed aluminum snakes its way up the dash and proceeds to spread out from side to side over the dash front, and houses the heater and air flow controls, light switches, logos and a very cool swing away steering wheel. Above this are 2 black vinyl winglike structures (can you say bird?) that form the padded dash top. A speaker, radio, and a 3-gauge cluster is within these swoops, and all appear in excellent condition. Power windows, power steering, power drivers seat, and power brakes are installed options. Drivetrain The car presented has gone through a thorough mechanical restoration which includes a rebuilt transmission with new front and rear seals attached to the original 390ci engine. A complete motor tune up including new plugs, points, condenser and car rebuild was performed. New brakes on all four corners, including front discs with power booster, replaced the worn discs and drums. The main axle bearings and rear wheel bearings were refreshed with new suspension bearings and complete front end alignment. The engine head gaskets were replaced with new as well as all hoses and belts. New shocks and HD helper springs completed the suspension restoration. A very, cool retro midcentury, last year of a truly iconic convertible, the 1963 offers an opportunity to own an immediately recognized classic for a below market price. So why not relive that fantasy of leading the jet set lifestyle, driving a jet age style automobile, flying around town, turning heads while doing so.
