Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is proud to offer this gorgeous
1963 Ford Thunderbird Monaco Edition for sale on consignment with
our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The "Bullet Bird"
is a handsome car on its own but this special, one of 2000 built
Monaco Edition takes it a step further. The Limited Edition Landau,
as this car is also known, was first presented to Prince Rainier of
Monaco at the Monte Carlo Rally in January 1963 and the remainder
were produced by Ford Motor Company in the USA until the end of the
'63 model year. This vehicle is claimed to be car number 462 and
has been partially restored to its current condition. Presented in
a sharp Corinthian White (using PPG two-stage paint/clearcoat)
combined with a lavish Dark Rose Beige Landau vinyl roof and
period-correct whitewall tires, this T-Bird is as charming as a
bouquet on wheels. All Monaco Edition T-Birds came with Ford's "Z
Code" 390 CID V8 engine that pushed 300hp from the factory but in
this car has been overhauled with new components including an
upgraded intake manifold, carburetor, valve covers, electric fuel
pump and HEI ignition. A 4-core radiator with electric fan will
also help keep your engine running optimally whether you're
participating in a parade downtown or cruising home on the highway
with the modernized Air Conditioning on full blast. Power steering
and power brakes were standard features on Thunderbirds from this
era and contributed significantly to the effortless driving
experience. A 3-speed automatic transmission shifts this T-Bird
through the gears smoothly and was also recently rebuilt according
to the seller's documents. Inside this Monaco Edition T-Bird it's
very clear that it was built to impress. An elegant combination of
White vinyl bucket seats, red carpet and woodgrain accents on the
door panels, dash and center console along with a commemorative
Limited Edition plaque give an opulent feeling to this '63 T-Bird.
The instrument cluster features gauges for speed, fuel and water
temperature and has a large analogue clock on the right hand side.
This Thunderbird features options such as power windows and seats
as well as an aftermarket Retro Stereo system with AM/FM radio.
This 1963 Ford Thunderbird Monaco Edition has everything you could
want out of a classic car- head-turning looks, V8 power and a
fascinating story behind its conception. Give our helpful and
