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.

1964 Ford Thunderbird coupe
Only 35,000 miles on this beauty! This is one of my favorite cars..very modern, aircraft inspired interior. A lounge type rear seat cushion. Nice luxury touches like complete instrumentation in those binnacles, swing away steering wheel when the car is placed in Park. Nice console too. A friend had the convertible version of this car. The venerable 390 c.i., 300 hp engine motivated the 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.





1959 Ford Galaxie Ranchero
What a nice sport ute! A vehicle like this would have been in production forever in Australia..I don't really know why they ceased production here. It's propelled by a 292 c.i. Y block V8, and it has Fordomatic. The 1960 model was downsized to a Falcon chassis..and that may be a reason why it didn't continue. According to the owner, this was the biggest Ranchero ever built, based on a full sized Ford car chassis, the Galaxie. And I'm sure it's quite rare...I don't remember seeing one before.





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!

1990 THUNDERBIRD SUPER COUPE -- HIGH POWERED T-BIRD SHOT DOWN
A more sophisticated, supercharged and intercooled version of the 3.8 L OHV V6 was used to power the high performance Thunderbird Super Coupe, also called Thunderbird SC for short. The Super Coupe could be had with a Mazda-derived, M5R2 5-speed manual transmission or an AOD 4-speed automatic transmission. The Thunderbird Super Coupe was Motor Trend's Car of the Year for 1989, which Ford proudly advertised. When running at a maximum of 5600 rpm, the Supercharger provided 12 psi of Boost, producing 210 horsepower at 4000 rpm and 315 lb·ft of torque at 2600 rpm under a 8.2:1 compression ratio. Accompanying the more powerful engine, Super Coupes were equipped with a host of unique features underlining their higher performance demeanor relative to standard Thunderbirds. Among these were larger, 16 x 7.0 inch alloy wheels with high performance tires (standard Thunderbirds came with 15 x 6.0 inch steel wheels and 15 x 6.5 inch alloy wheels were optional), a Traction-Lok limited slip differential, standard anti-lock brakes, 4-wheel disc brakes with vented front and rear rotors, speed-sensitive variable assist steering, lower body side cladding, fog lights, and a stiffer suspension with adjustable shocks supplied by Tokico. In spite of the new Thunderbird's merits, it was considered a FAILURE by Ford's top management. On January 17, 1989, Ford President Harold A. Poling, with Ford CEO Donald Petersen and Ford Executive Vice President Phil Benton looking on, lambasted the MN12 program's staff in a meeting for badly missing the Thunderbird and Cougars' weight and cost targets, 250 lbs. heavier and $900 US$ more per car than planned. This criticism came as a surprise to the program staff who expected to be praised for the Thunderbird and Cougars' technical achievements and positive reception. Anthony "Tony" S. Kuchta, manager of the MN12 program, was angered by Poling, not for his points about weight and cost overruns but rather that he directed his tirade at the program staff instead of at Kuchta who was responsible for all of the important decisions that determined the program's direction. Ironically, many of the decisions that Kuchta made regarding the MN12's development that resulted in the weight and cost overruns criticized by Poling were caused by the very things that set the MN12 cars apart from other cars in their class, such as rear-wheel drive and an independent rear suspension. Falling out of favor with Ford management after the Thunderbird and Cougars' launch, Kuchta voluntarily retired early from Ford in May 1989. 1990 T- Bird SC produced 15,742 units with automatic trannys and 6,067 units with manual transmissions. This examples shows an innovative engineering showcase and then shot down by Ford management. Thanks very much for enjoying this rare and wonderful 1990 Thunderbird SC.

When introduced, it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car. For 1964 the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off appearance, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. Hinting at its roots in the previous generation Thunderbird that it evolved from, the new model retained a similar grille design with dual headlights. As before, the new Thunderbird continued to be offered in hardtop, convertible, and Landau versions. VIN 4Y85Z128649 Ultra Rare and Beautifully Restored. Original Owners Manual Included.
