Car description

With its correct and stellar color combo, this 1962 Ford Thunderbird is rolling opulence. Plus, with a ton of investment all-around, including the enhanced V8 power, comfy A/C interior, and great details, this is your opportunity to own a piece of the vintage luxury lifestyle at a terrific price.
The bullet-nose birds are a true styling marvel. These third-generation cars were more Lincoln than Ford, and they were happy to showcase it. You see it in all the styling touches like the premium hardtop profile, fender skirts, and how the chrome front bumper is an integral part of the styling. Plus, there's the crisp trim line that starts in front of the headlights, runs the full length of the body (expertly integrating the door handles,) and it doesn't stop until it reaches the afterburner-style taillights. It sets the tone for the car and makes this a true cruising legend. Not only can you see all of this so well because the panels are quite straight, but also the factory-correct Raven Black provides a terrific contrast. It received a professional respray later in life, so you have a factory black car that still retains a nice gloss today.
Arguably there's nothing better than a red interior against a black exterior to convey both premium and boldness. And the trim tag tells us this T-bird was born this way! You can tell that there have been solid investments in places like the upholstery and carpeting to make this a nice place to spend some time. Just like the exterior, the there's plenty of brightwork trim, and it looks highly original and complete. We especially love the anodized aluminum that flows like water seamlessly from the door panels to the dash, and then it cascades down the center to form the console. Even the steering wheel matches this color theme, and beyond that are jewel-like gauges. The whole presentation fits with this idea of rolling luxury. Because of this, this one has the best features. There are factory luxury items like power stats and power windows. Plus, this has been upgraded in the right places, like the AM/FM/cassette stereo with digital tuner, and the air conditioning is blowing cold with modern R134a.
Ford's large 390 cubic-inch V8 looks great in this engine bay. And while the clean look, good hoses, and shining components make it ready to show off, you'll also love the investments you can't see. The consignor states the motor has been given plenty of recent investment, including heads rebuilt w/stainless valves, new fuel pump, new water pump, and a new exhaust. It also includes a new Holley four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock intake to let this mighty motor inhale deeper. And the way this one fires up and runs so sweetly reaffirms the quality investments. The correct Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and this really goes down the road nicely thanks to the rebuilt front suspension. Plus, there's power steering with a new steering box and an upgrade to power brakes w/discs up front. And the more modern Mustang 17-inch alloys look nice while also giving you the opportunity to fit modern ZR-rated tires.
Complete with maintenance records, this is one of the coolest looking Thunderbird generations, and this coupe was born with one of the coolest color combos around. So if you love distinct vintage luxury, don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
