Proven road car with past VTCI 1st Place Honors! On display and for

Thunderbird Convertible featuring an Aquamarine exterior that's

Kelsey-Hayes, power steering, brakes, and power windows. 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!
