For Sale: 1960 Ford Thunderbird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

The second-generation Thunderbird is arguably the most distinctive of the bunch. So when you can find an exceptionally well-cared-for example with its factory-correct colors, big V8 power, and acres of chrome like this 1960 Ford Thunderbird, then you know you have a great classic for the right price.

The 1960 car was the crossroads of many different styles all blended into a distinct coupe. You see the jet age in the profile with the rocket-inspired sheet metal and tailfins. Those bright beautiful bumpers, and how well they integrate into the design, remind us that style was king before government regulations stepped in. Plus, the Detroit maxim of "longer, lower, wider" is exactly what created these boulevard-cruising second-generation T-birds. It all looks good in the correct-style Corinthian White. It's a driver-ready finish with a good gloss that will get you respect at the stoplights. That's great for a cruiser, or you may choose to reinvest some of the value price in an upgrade. But what we really love is how this delivers a complete and sophisticated package that includes a proper hardtop profile, classic whitewalls, and the dip in the trunk line that would be hard to recreate on new cars today.

The sophisticated attitude continues inside. The whole coupe has a stylish Lincoln-level of execution, and you really see it on the seats. The button-top white presentation is joined by a crisp black to deliver the formal look of a tuxedo. This black and white combo continues in the door panels, headliner, dash, and carpeting to deliver a uniform package that reminds you what classic style was all about. The bright center console and cockpit-style dash are more reminders of the jet age. And with such an attractive total appearance, you'll also love that this is a power windows car. That means you can take down all the side glass without ever leaving the driver's seat so that everyone can really get a good look inside.

Under the hood is a proper 352 cubic-inch V8, and in fact, it's even a year-correct block. It has a nice look in the engine bay as the forward-tilting hood gives way to a black and white contrast with the addition of bold yellow on the valve covers drawing your attention to the motor. This V8 is far larger than anything offered in the first-generation Thunderbird, and so it has the right power and torque to confidently move this coupe. On the road, the dual exhaust gives a hint at the power under the hood, but the T-bird never loses its premium composure. It floats down the boulevard as a true vintage luxury coupe should. This is aided by the right features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering.

This is your opportunity to pick up a stylish classic coupe before the market makes the pricing more exclusive. Call today!!!
