With its big 390 V8, plenty of luxury features, and a great color
theme, this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau delivers that ideal style
you demand from a premium classic cruiser.
The light blue paint has the right executive-class tone that this
Thunderbird has always portrayed. It's an upgrade later in life
that shows off the bright style and iconic lines of the fourth-gen
T-bird. And speaking of bright, the brightwork looks good,
especially the artfully designed bumpers. The total package is
about a car that's ready to drive, and that's because it is also
one to show off. It's a special Landau coupe with the B-pillar
ornamentation that gives it a classic style, and T-birds are all
about nostalgia. And this vintage elegance is in all the right
details, including the turbine-style wheel covers, whitewall tires,
and full black vinyl roof.
We love the look of the dark blue interior because it looks like
you mixed the exterior color of the body and roof to get this hue.
So it's a nice bridge to make the whole package look harmonized
inside and out. There are plenty of classic details, including the
wood-like trim, working AM radio, and the courtesy lights on the
inside panels of the unique landau roof. You'll also appreciate the
level of luxury that comes from a car with nice details like bucket
seats for everyone, newer carpeting, power windows, and a power
driver's seat. There are also provisions for desirable features
like power locks and R134a air conditioning (they will need
servicing to operate again.) So you may want to restore some
features or upgrade some details, but overall, it retains the
luxury cruiser feeling you want in a T-bird.
The 390 cubic-inch V8 was a great pairing with the T-bird, and it's
the correct displacement for this Z-code coupe. Ford knew how to
build these with stout power, and this one shows the right signs of
good maintenance - including newer hoses, wires, and coil. So it
fires up eagerly and hits the road with confidence. Plus, the
three-speed automatic transmission shifts smoothly. Add in power
steering, power brakes, and front discs, and this classic coupe is
ready to cruise.
Complete with service manuals, this Thunderbird is elegance, power,
and boulevard-ready distinction all offered for a value price. Call
