For Sale: 1963 Ford Thunderbird in Collierville, Tennessee

Vehicle Description

Art & Speed is proud to offer this beautiful 1963 Ford Thunderbird Convertible dressed in classic Rangoon Red over black. The older refinish presents smooth and bright with only a few minor indicators that it is not brand new. A "one-car-parade", this Thunderbird is the last year for the sleek 'Bullet' design and is favored by many. Upgrades include Kelsey Hayes style chrome wire wheels, factory fender skirts, and the rare color matched Sports Roadster fiberglass tonneau cover.

This red beauty is powered by Ford's 330hp, 390ci "Z code" Thunderbird V8, paired with the 3-speed "Cruise-O-Matic" automatic transmission. A Holley 4-barrel carburetor disperses the fuel. Power steering, power brakes, and optional "Swing-Away" tilt steering column make this a luxurious ride all around. The custom "Thunderbird Roadster" Tonneau cover converts the four place black bucket seat interior into a two-seater, mimicking the earliest Thunderbirds. Two seats or four, the interior in this car is in amazing condition. The metal finished dashboard is in a condition far superior to most of the Thunderbirds you see from this era.

The space-age interior design features elegant chrome accents and spherical instruments, all in good condition, mimicking the space age aesthetic that is evident throughout the design. On the outside, beautiful chrome and brightwork show off the bright Rangoon finish. Factory fender skirts are included and can be installed when that long, low and elegant look is preferred over the sporty look.

This Thunderbird has is a combination of well preserved original and tastefully restored components, making it an attention getter wherever you go. And the electric retractable top works as it should! Top up or down, this car is striking.
