Vehicle Description

1963 Ford Thunderbird Z Code

We have a Z Code (VIN # 3Y83Z127870) 1963 Ford Thunderbird here at Adventure Classics. For those of you that know, that Z Code means it is powered by a 390 cubic inch engine that is believed to be the original motor sitting an all original engine bay.

The Z code engine has 300 horsepower and looks completely stock, including the carb, intake, gold painted factory correct valve covers and air cleaner, and most other engine bay parts,

It runs smooth and sounds great and the power flows back through a 3-speed automatic transmission to the rear wheels mounted on leaf springs with coil springs and a sway bar up that offers nice handling and ride with power brakes providing the stopping power.

The thin white wall tires with factory steel wheels and full center spin hub caps complete the look.
These third generation T-Birds combine the beautiful fins of the '50s with the smoother, cleaner lines that many consider it to be the best-looking Thunderbird ever.

Ours looks almost completely factory original in its Silver Mink Metallic paint and the vinyl landau hardtop looks like a rocket from the side with its nose tapering down from the hood and up from the bottom to form the tip, and the upper edge of the fenders and door trimmed in chrome makes it look like its flying through the air.

A big chrome bumper wraps up around the edges of quad headlights and grill and it has a hood mean looking scoop. The fins on the rear make and the two round taillights look similar to airplane jet afterburners to complete the Ford design statement.

Inside the a stylish Light Turquoise Metallic interior has seats that are comfortable, trimmed in vinyl with pleated center sections, wraps around the driver and passenger and looks like it did when it left the factory with the matching door panels and headliner too.

The steering wheel is a work of art in wood and chrome with a Thunderbird center button and the dash is factory with gauges trimmed in chrome, control knobs run across the bottom and the ventilation controls, including those for the factory air conditioning.

Unique styling with smooth lines, chrome edged fins and a smooth running 390 cubic inch powerhouse. This is a personal luxury car '60 style.

Open the door and you will find a stylish interior that wraps around the driver and passenger in a way that is unique and perfect for this "personal luxury car". It is all original and in really good shape but is showing its age in a couple places, mostly on the door panels but it shows the car has been cared for all these years.

Our 1963 Ford Thunderbird we have here at Adventure Classics conveys the quintessential space age designs of that early 60's design era and are forever considered one of a kind cars.
