1964 Ford Thunderbird
Car for sale by GR Auto Gallery in Grand Rapids, Michigan 49512
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.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
After the restyling of the Ford Thunderbird in 1964, which was the 4th generation bird, sales were very strong with a reported 92,465 cars sold. This was a 50% increase from the previous year. This was also the only year ever that the word Thunderbird was on the front hood instead of the image. The revised model was initially offered as a hardtop, a convertible or a landau with a vinyl roof and simulated landau irons. The tonneau cover and wire wheels of the Sports Roadster remained available as a dealer-installed option, although only 50 were sold from the factory. The standard 6.4 Liter 390 cubic inch engine rated at 300 HP would propel the big bird to a top speed of 120 MPH and a 0-60 time in 11 seconds all while doing it with a tremendous ride and style. The new-look they were going for was a more formal or classy look as the sports cars of the US took shape into the muscle cars of the era.
