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 Coupe The Jet age is in full swing, the country is riding high on Beatle mania, towering beehive hair doos, fur boots, and getting to the moon before the end of the decade. Unfortunately, we were riding low on the assassination of President Kennedy, Russia launching the first woman into space, and racial equality concerns. To mirror these times Ford Motor Company put elements of design into the Thunderbird for 1963. For consignment a barn find car that comes with lots of parts and is in need of some TLC. I cannot say for sure if all the parts are there, but what I can say is it needs some of your love! Exterior Bathed in red exterior appears overall good, with some body work being finished off prior to the red respray. Chrome is good with slight pitting and missing from the rear window surround which has some invasive rust. Uncapped steel wheels are all around. Interior Again, with the TLC as it is loaded with parts, and seats appear decent with minimal wear, door panels are missing, and floors need some redux on the pan edges as they are rusted out. There is no carpet, and the original headliner hangs above. Drivetrain An unrestored 390ci V8 with a single 4-barrel carburetor on top, and a 3-speed Dual Range Automatic transmission is on back with a Ford 9-inch 3.00 rear. Noted the back wheels are frozen, and the engine just clicks with a full charge on the battery, it will not turn over nor start. Like life being a box of chocolates, so goes this barn find which has some work done on the exterior slabs and chrome, however the inner workings will need a redux to get everything working again. A frozen rear, no start, project car is awaiting your capable hands to help it out. Dream on, dream until your dreams come true for this Mid-Century iconic T bird from the jet age.
