1962 Lincoln and Thunderbird Being Built
A visit to the factory while the 1962 Lincoln Continental (suicide doors)
and the Thunderbird are being built. See the whole process from body
parts being welded together, glass put on, paint applied and the cars
rolling off the line and on to a transport to the dealers. This is how the
middle class was born, making things.

For 1966 the 390-cubic-inch V8's power was increased to 315 bhp (235 kW).
The larger 428-cubic-inch (7.0 L) V-8 became optional, rated at 345 gross
kW) and providing a notable improvement in 0-60 acceleration (to about 9
seconds). A new Town Hardtop model was offered, featured a roof with blind
quarter panels for a more 'formal' look (at the cost of rear visibility).
The Landau model was replaced by the Town Landau, which retained the
previous model's padded roof and landau S-bars, but applied them to the
Town Hardtop's formal roof. The Town Landau was by far the best-selling
model, accounting for 35,105 of the 1966 model's 69,176 sales.
There was a very rare special order 427 available through certain Ford
dealers for 1963-1965 Thunderbirds, 120 of these "high performance" models
were made. Only six are still known to exist today. It is documented that
Bob Tasca, a well known drag racer of the 1960s, ordered a factory-fitted
427 1964 Thunderbird with an export suspension and had custom body work
done by Alexander Bros. Custom Shop in Detroit. The Birds Performance was
said to do 0-60 mph in 6 seconds flat with a top speed of 135 mph (217
km/h). The car's current whereabouts are unknown. There is a link to
another 427 Thunderbird at the bottom of this page.
A black 1964 convertible later had a major role in the TV series
Highlander: The Series as protagonist Duncan Macleods main mode of
transportation. A green 1966 Thunderbird convertible was prominently
featured in the 1991 Ridley Scott film Thelma and Louise, starring Susan
Sarandon and Geena Davis, a red 1966 Thunderbird convertible was featured
in the 1983 film The Outsiders which was directed by Francis Ford Coppola,
and a green 1966 Thunderbird Convertible was featured in the David Lynch
film Wild at Heart, starring Nicholas Cage and Laura Dern.

1960 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE - IT'S BRAND NEW!
So it's 1960 and you go to the local Ford dealer to check out the '60
Thunderbirds. The salesman shows you this convertible that just came in.
This is what a brand new Thunderbird looks like although several people
took it for a test drive. There are only a little over 1,000 original miles
clocked on this car! Absolutely brand spanking new Thunderbird. This baby
is powered by the sturdy V8, 352 cid with 300 horses. The larger V8, 430
cid with 350 horses was available also. Production of 1960 T-bird
convertibles amounted to 11,860. So maybe with an estimated survival rate
of 10%, perhaps only 1,100 of these convertibles still exist. The price tag
on these ran about $4,222 - a pricey sum in 1960. I couldn't risk taping
the interior but seeing it I can state that it was astounding. Also
delightful to the eyes was the original and rare wire wheels and the
continental kit mounted on the rear. I hope you enjoyed this time travel
with the fantasy of being at the dealer and negotiating the purchase of
this Thunderbird. You bought it! The sold sign is on the windshield. Thanks
very much for viewing this brand new 1960 Thunderbird convertible.
