Thunderbird Convertible featuring an Aquamarine exterior that's highly complimented by a two-tone Turquoise interior, along with, an all original drivetrain.

You simply cannot ignore it's gorgeous eye-catching appeal!

Known affectionately as the 'Square Bird," the Thunderbird's 1960 body style was produced only for 3 short years and represents the first of the larger bodied 4-seater T-birds, the introduction of the 2 door hardtop, along with, the complete departure from the 2-seater roadsters produced from 1955 to 1957. Additional changes included new, larger engines providing considerably more power, highlighted and bolder body lines, larger front chrome grills, and more prominent rear tail fins.

We are proud to represent a wonderful 1960 Ford Thunderbird Convertible that processes a very well kept, older restoration remaining in terrific condition throughout! This eye-catching classic Thunderbird is powered by its original, date-code correct 352ci 4bbl V8 producing a total of 300 horsepower linked to smooth shifting Cruise-O-Matic transmission and 3.10 rear axle ratio. A ready to enjoy classic that's fitted with highly desired options including Select-Aire air conditioning, power steering and brakes, power windows, heater with defrost, an original push button AM radio, all tinted glass, dual exterior rear view mirrors, Kelsey-Hayes 14" chrome wire wheels fitted with radial white sidewall tires, fender skirts, windshield washer, and more!

This Thunderbird, finished in beautiful code C- Aquamarine with 57- Turquoise two-tone interior upholstery, is stunning to see on the open road and without a doubt catches eyes wherever it cruises! This particular example was treated to a professional exterior and interior restoration between 1991-1994 without seeing inclement weather of any kind, and has remained wonderfully maintained ever since. Notable features include all new paint, interior upholstery and carpet, exterior chrome, factory emblems, and stainless trim. The beauty behind this classic Thunderbird is further solidified when it went on to earn 1st Place honors at the Vintage Thunderbird Club Internationals soon after completion!

The car received an entirely rebuilt engine by Thunderbird specialist Don Paddock including resurfaced heads, fully rebuilt air conditioning system, a cleaned and sealed the gas tank, rebuilt carburetor, new fuel lines, brake master cylinder and booster, hoses, wheel cylinders, axle bearings and seals, etc. Also replaced during this mechanical overhaul were all shocks; front end components like control arm bushings, new pitman arm, sway bar bushings and brackets, new power steering pump; all new door and window weather stripping, along with,much more! This was completed in October of 1994 and has traveled approximately 21,000 miles since. More recent service between 2001-2006 included all new Pertonix ignition system, alternator upgrade, replacement gas tank, new Holley carburetor, resealed transmission, recorded radiator, and new Coker Classic 2.5" whitewall tires measuring 215/75R14. Today, the odometer reads only 72,789 miles.

Included in the sale are all service records, dating back to September 1989, an original owner's manual, workshop manual, a correct spare tire, jack, and lug wrench stowed neatly in the trunk compartment.
