For Sale: 1965 Ford Thunderbird in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1965 Ford Thunderbird! Wow, the history of the Thunderbird is rich! Debuting all the way back in 1955, the Thunderbird was Ford's immediate response to the newly marketed Corvette. Rushed from idea to prototype in under a year! The Thunderbird would become one of Ford's longest produced cars. Spanning from 1955-1997, and 2002-2005, the Thunderbird would see not just a few redesigns, but 11 generations in total! Here we have a '65 model, the 2nd year of the fourth generation. A "Z" code car. The green paint looks good and is very complementing of the lines on this car. The black vinyl interior looks nice and comfortable and is in good order. One of my favorite features of these cars is the sliding steering wheel. Makes getting in and out a breeze! Per the owner, under the hood is the original but rebuilt 390ci V8 big block backed by a rebuilt 3-speed automatic transmission. The current owner has had her for over 48 years! You read that right, 48 years, and believed a 2 owner car! Odometer shows 57k miles and owner believes it to be actual. Since he bought it after it was only 9 years old in 1974 it is probably accurate. The car was restored by The Garage out of Seymour, IN and was completed in 2005. Owner has receipts from the restoration. The title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now. Don't miss your chance to have this beauty that has a rich heritage and been in the same hands since 1974! Options on this Thunderbird are: A/C, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Seat, Vinyl Interior, Sliding Wheel, AM Radio, Hub Caps, Seat Belts, and White Wall Radial Tires. This 1965 Ford Thunderbird is offered by our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (812) 294-1555 or email us at [email protected]
