Vehicle Description

1962 two-door hardtop exceptionally rare "Survivor" Thunderbird. This car has all original equipment and only one owner (See
History below). The engine is the upgraded version of the 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8 called the "M-Code" (a nickname used in
reference to the letter M used as the engine code in the VIN in cars so equipped). The M-Code version of the 390 cu in (6.4 L)
V8 was equipped with three two-barrel Holley carburetors and could produce 340 horsepower. Only 145 of them were built-in
1962. 120 of them were the convertible Sports Roadster model, with 25 of them being the 2 door hardtop version. This two-door
hardtop features the highly touted "Swing Away" steering wheel. With the transmission in the park position, the steering wheel
will slide approximately 18 inches to the right allowing the driver to exit the vehicle easily. With red exterior and white
leather interior, other features include dual exhaust, power windows, power door locks, power driver’s seat, factory air
conditioning, 58,872 original miles, and 48-spoke Kelsey-Hayes designed wire wheels.
VIN 2Y83M155802

History
This T Bird was purchased by the late Aurelbelle Shaffer, who was the wife of deceased Raymond Shaffer, retired President of
Greyhound Bus Line. Aurelbelle drove this T Bird as her second car and always kept it parked under a carport in Scottsdale,
AZ. In 1992, the car was placed in a storage facility in AZ and kept there until moved to GA in 2010. The car remains in a
building and has only been driven on and off a car hauling transport vehicle since being placed in storage. Being kept under
cover has really helped to preserve the interior and exterior of the car.
