For Sale: 1962 Ford Thunderbird in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The 1962 Ford Thunderbird seems to hit that sweet spot in classics. The design of these third-gen T-birds have the sleek lines, plenty of room to carry everyone, and this one has been cared for correctly like a vintage drop-top should. It even comes with the desirable Sports Roadster-style tonneau for a true distinct cruiser experience.


This is about showcasing that brief time in automotive history when designers ruled over engineers, and they got to build the cars they wanted. A sleekly rounded hood that ends at a point to give the Thunderbird a true beak. A chrome line that runs from the front point to the tailfin. Those jet-inspired taillights that are prominent thanks to a bright bumper that tapers inwards. All the intricate design work needed to be as complete and straight as this T-bird is to really make an impression wherever it goes. So this convertible combines its full brightwork and its stylish factory-correct Sandshell Beige to deliver a Lincoln-like level of sophistication. It has led a cared for life, where there are highly original pieces and well-done investments to make sure replacement look correct. Some of our pictures show a very cool matching white tonneau cover that goes over the back seats. No, this is not one of the ultra-rare Sports Roadster models. Instead, this one offers the versatility of a back seat and a much more reasonable price. But you can still wow your friends with the removable fiberglass cover when you want.


The black convertible top has a distinguished look against the beige. But for true elegance, you're going to want to power this down to reveal a well-coordinated look inside and out. After all, the factory-correct two-tone beige inside harmonizes so nicely because the exterior hue falls in-between the two. The odometer is believed to reflect actual total mileage on this car, and such little seat time means a well-preserved package. The intricate pattern and factory leather remind you this is a luxury T-bird. Buckets seats and a center console continues this high-end feeling. The beautiful round gauges have an elegant look with each in their own pod, and the band of anodized aluminum trim stretching across the dash and into the doors adds some nice flair. When the tonneau cover is off there's plenty of room in back for full-sized adults. Plus, this has nice details, like the factory Swing-Away steering column and a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo upgrade for better driving music.


Ford's large 390 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top was standard equipment in 1962. Advertised with 300 horsepower on tap, it moves this cruising convertible around with ease. The engine bay is quite stock, and that's a good thing, because Ford dressed its premium cruiser with a bright oversized air grabber and Thunderbird-specific valve covers. The Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes all work in harmony to help keep the smooth and easy. Plus, those classic whitewall-style tires hide deep treads of modern cruising tires.


Complete with owner's manual, this is the premium classic with all the features you want. So if you'd love to own the road, don't miss this T-bird. Call today!!!
