Ford decided on a new design for the Sixty-One Thunderbird and to many it was a vast improvement over the previous past year models. This particular beauty ir powered by a great running 390 engine transferring power to the road by way of a 3-Speed automatic transmission. It is configured in the Roadster format and it draws stares and praise wherever it travels. Its options include power brakes, power steering, a power top wire wheels and new white walled tires. It is a great running classic in need of nothing but a new owner. Seller seeks $29.5K but may consider other reasonable offers. Inspections encouraged and welcomed by appointment only.

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
