1964 Ford Thunderbird coupe

Beautiful car..this was up for auction at last year's Zephyrhills Florida show. Interesting paint combination..and you will have to go a long way to find one with such a nice interior. Notice the swing-away wheel that helped drivers enter and exit the car. Notice the full gauge assortment in binnacles that faced the driver. Overhead there are controls too...the overall atmosphere is that you're in the cockpit of a plane! The interestingly formed back seat is curved so as to wrap around the sides.

1968 Ford Thunderbird hardtop
Really a beautiful example. I really am a fan of this color for this car! Nice hideaway headlamps, big trunk, rear seat that makes a slight turn as it meets the side of the vehicle.....and the owners are only the second to own this car! It's always nice to have the original window sticker for a car!





1967 Ford Thunderbird 4 door
This is the first year for this body style...note the 4 door model with the rear "suicide" doors. A two door version was also produced. This is a BIG car..and Ford at the time evidently interpreted a personal car as a BIG car! Note the vinyl roof..and the rear door opened into it...an unusual arrangement. The front headlights were concealed. This was evidently the next step in making Thunderbird a luxury model. It still retained many of the "aircraft" features of the earlier models.





1963 Ford Falcon Sprint convertible
Very nice car with four speed manual and 260 c.i. thinwall casting V8. Notice the console between the bucket seats. Great paint, wheels, and original type upholstery!





1962 Ford Thunderbird Sports Roadster Convertible
This beautiful example has the twin tonneau caps that disguise this four seater as a two seater! The sports roadster tonneau was only offered on the 1962 and 1963 models. Very sporty indeed! Notice the "swing-away" steering wheel and column...made getting in and out of the vehicle easier.
