For Sale: 1962 Ford Thunderbird in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1962 Ford Thunderbird has proper V8 power, big investments, and a distinctly cool color combo. So when you can pick up one of the most distinctive T-bird generations around for a terrific price, you know you need to dig into the details of this deal.


You can see from a distance that the coupe has timeless appeal with its dark body and light roof. So people will be instantly attracted to the car well before you park it. And when you do let everyone get closer, they will truly drink this one in because it looks like a freshly poured Guinness. The shining brown metallic paint has a beautiful luster that gives it added depth, and the creamy white roof looks absolutely premium. These third-gen T-Birds are also for detail lovers, and this one doesn't disappoint. The front end is all about the hood, bumper, and grille creating an integrated look that sharply cuts the traffic ahead. The full-length trim is a hallmark of these stylish machines, and it's complete here as it hides the door handles and creates a swoopy style that ends in a hint of tailfin. The rear continues this awesome style with large taillights that light up like afterburners. Fender skirts, full badging, and wire wheels are all part of the look of vintage quality.


Inside is more of that creamy appeal with the pearl beige interior. The upholstery, headliner, dash, and other details strike the right balance of looking good while never being too precious to get you nervous about hopping in and going for a drive. After all, a Thunderbird is a true personal cruiser, and so you deserve to be out there showing off this classic. The wraparound dash and artful factory gauges are all part of the 1960s cruiser experience. And the radio is a retro-style unit that upgraded you to a digital AM/FM tuner and Bluetooth. So classic cruising now has the best driving music.


This was born a Z-code coupe, so it's great to still have a big 390 cubic-inch V8 filling in the engine bay. But this is more than just stock. We have a receipt file showing over $14k invested in 2018 to make this a strong driver with plenty of work on the engine and suspension. The V8 was rebuilt, and now it's topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor. The three-speed automatic transmission was also part of the investment in this coupe, and so it has the smooth operation you want in a Thunderbird. New power brakes and new suspension components give you a confident feeling on the road. And you also have power steering and a modern tread behind the classic whitewalls for an all-around easy cruiser.


The sale comes complete with plenty of maintenance records, build receipts, and service manuals. This is a beautiful T-Bird with a standout presence. So you need to hurry because a complete classic style might never be this affordable again. Call today!!!
