For Sale: 1966 Ford Thunderbird in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

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 now!
