For Sale: 1963 Ford Thunderbird in Grand Rapids, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1963 Ford Thunderbird - Turquoise over Two Tone Interior - 390 V8 - Wood Steering Wheel - Continental Kit (Please note: If you happen to be viewing this 1963 Ford Thunderbird 2-Door Coupe on a website other than our Garage Kept Motors site, it's possible that you've only seen some of our many photographs of the car due to third-party website limitations. To be sure you access all the more than 145 photographs, as well as a short start-up and walk-around video, please go to our main website: Garage Kept Motors.) Thunderbird... Unique in all the world - 1963 Ford Thunderbird magazine advertising theme One such 1963 Thunderbird ad headlined: How to catch a Thunderbird went on to explain the car's many charms while explaining: Find one that's standing still. In full flight this is a most elusive species-with a rare talent for disappearing from the view of lesser cars. It is powered by a Thunderbird 390 V-8 and equipped with a number of features that make it remarkably easy to handle, exceptionally pleasant to ride in. Although it may remind you of a sports car... it still ranks among the world's foremost luxury cars. Interiors have contoured bucket seats, a personal console, deep-foam cushioning, glove-soft upholsteries, and special Thunderbird conveniences like the Swing-Away steering wheel. A tradition of superb engineering has resulted in a constant program of refinement (a list of the changes between '62 and '63 would make a small book.) As you might expect, Thunderbird-with its exceptionally high resale value-continues to be one of the finest investments in automotive history. May we suggest that you see your Ford Dealer. He may have one in his showroom that's standing still. They don't write ads like that anymore. Or build cars like this, either. Offered here in turquoise metallic and white, over the same two-color interior is an extremely well-maintained 1963 Ford Thunderbird 2-Door Coupe. The car's odometer shows 77,309 miles, or fewer than 1,350 miles-per year on average since new. Its condition shows every sign of superb owner attention to the car's care and maintenance over the years. The turquoise exterior finish is outstanding across the entire car, from the bumper and grille painted in this color, across the expansive hood and beautifully sculpted flanks (with rear skirts), to its long rear deck. The gloss is uniform and free of fading. (For the best assessment of paint quality, be sure to inspect the close-up photographs of the sheet metal in the accompanying gallery.) In the same way, the white hardtop roof's gloss white paint is flawless. Together, the two exterior colors make a strong and appealing early-Sixties statement, and the Continental Kit spare-tire carrier (in chrome and gloss white added to the turquoise-painted rear bumper) puts an exclamation point on that statement. There is no damage to the sheet metal, no dings, dents, or scrapes. The car's cabin glass and lighting lenses are likewise clear and free of damage. All factory-mounted badging, including the Thunderbird hood emblem, similar Thunderbird emblems on the sailplanes, and script Thunderbird badges on the rear fenders remains in place. The chrome trim all retains an excellent, well-maintained finish, and all the original trim-headlight surrounds, hood scoop grille, full-length fender-top molding, triple hashmarks on the doors, cabin-glass surrounds, side mirrors, impressive taillight surrounds, and the Continental Kit-is properly in place. Majestic® radial, thin-whitewall tires mounted on stock wheels with wire-wheel-style covers and Thunderbird-emblem centers complete the period-correct look. Inside, the turquoise-and-white combination is as stunning as it is on the car's body. Horizontal-design door trim combines the two colors-white vinyl-upholstery on top, turquoise, vertically pleated vinyl on the armrest and lower panel-with chrome trim in between. Fold-forward front bucket seats and 2-place rear bench feature
