1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible 390 Special V-8 Cruise-O-Matic. The fourth generation of the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off appearance, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. Hinting at its roots in the previous generation of Thunderbird from which it evolved, the new model retained a similar grille design with quad headlights and a 113.2 inches wheelbase. The 300 HP, 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE V8 engine powers this impressive Thunderbird, paired with a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic transmission. 1965 saw sequential turn signals added, standard front disc brakes, and doubled-sided keys. Seller is only the third owner, and he has a clean title and a large file of maintenance history. This '65 T-Bird is a beautiful code 9091-LM Red with an operational Black automatic convertible top. This vehicle features many desirable, original options: AM/FM Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Power Locks, Power Windows, Vinyl Interior, Air Conditioning (not working at present), Automatic Convertible Top, Power Seats and Seatbelts.
Of the 74,792 T-Birds produced in 1695 only 6,846 were Convertibles. The steel unibody gave this personal luxury car a great feel as the V8 launched the 4586 lb vehicle forward.
