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.

1962 Ford Thunderbird 390 V8 - Nicely Restored Classic Car
I thought you might like a look at this very slick 1962 Ford Thunderbird.
It's still powered by the original 390 FE series V8, backed by a 3 spd
automatic trans. It's in very original condition, with only a light
restoration. The paint is slick, there interior is well kept, and the car
runs great. This would make a really fun cruiser. I hope you find it
interesting, thanks for taking a look!

Reflecting a further industry-wide adoption of smaller vehicle designs in
the interest of improved fuel efficiency and emissions compliance, the
Thunderbird was redesigned for 1980 on the compact Ford Fox platform, which
first appeared only two years prior as the basis for the Ford Fairmont.
Compared to the previous Torino-based Thunderbird and its large 114 inches
(2,896 mm) wheelbase and 215.5 inches (5,474 mm) overall length, the new
Thunderbird lost 5.6 inches (142 mm) of wheelbase and 14.6 inches (371 mm)
in overall length. The squarish styling seen in the previous generation
Thunderbird was favored for the new model, but the small car platform
resulted in a poor translation with a distinctly upright appearance.
Frameless door glass was no longer used; a chrome metal frame was used,
making this car more like a two-door sedan. Combined with the poor
performing 4.2 L (255 cu in) Windsor V8 as a base engine, this Thunderbird
generation was not well received by the public. The available 4.9 L (302 cu
in) Windsor V8 was a welcome alternative to the 255, but with only 131 horsepower (98 kW)
performance was only modestly enhanced. Significantly, though failing to
generate any new interest for the Thunderbird, a six-cylinder engine was
made available for the first time in the Thunderbird's history in 1981, the
200 cu in (3.3 L) Thriftpower Six. For 1982 this was followed up with the
replacement of the straight-six with a V6, the 3.8 L Essex, which was also
now the Thunderbird's standard engine. Hurting the Thunderbird's sales
performance further, the 302 V8 did not return for 1982, leaving the 255 as
the only alternative engine. At 288,638 examples produced between 1980 and
1982, the eighth generation Thunderbird was barely more successful than the
final model year of the previous Thunderbird generation. In order to
revive the Thunderbird's success, a redesign was needed and Ford would
deliver one for 1983.

1963 Ford Thunderbird Sport Roadster Start Up, Exhaust, and In Depth Tour
In this video I give a full in depth tour of the 1963 Ford Thunderbird
Sport Roadster. I take viewers on a close look through the interior and
exterior of this car while showing details, over viewing of features, and
noting unique styling cues to the vehicle itself. I also show the engine
and the details of it, start it up and see how it sounds under
acceleration. A thorough tour/review of this car designed to give others a
greater overall appreciation of the vehicle.
