For Sale: 1966 Ford Thunderbird in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

Q-code... for cars it means the ultimate sleeper, and so this 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible might just be the ultimate Q-ship Q-code. After all, it has a terrific vintage look, rare color combo, and a loaded interior that make this an awesome classic even before you see the ultra-desirable 428 big block under the hood.


This drop-top has a first impression of pure sophistication. The factory-correct Silver Rose was given a later respray to make sure it has an appealing metallic glow in the sunshine. If you've never seen this color before, it's likely because it was only offered for one year and exclusive to T-Bird and Lincolns. This connection seems right because this was the era when the Thunderbird really looked like Lincoln had made them with the way the front bumper follows the contour of the angular nose, and the rear one surrounds the wide emblem tail lights. And the burgundy convertible top against the special paint color is pure first-class. There are even more great details, like the fender-mounted turn indicators, rear fender skirts, and the sequential rear turn signals. And yes, those are genuine Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. So this one is impressive well before you look under the hood.


As much as this one looks great with the top in place, you'll really want to open this one up to the world. And when you do, you still have the awesome look of burgundy thanks to the full interior package. This was all about providing individual luxury, and so everyone has their own bucket seat. There are good comfort features like power windows, a power top, a retro-style AM/FM/cassette stereo, and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) And when you only have one passenger, this one comes with a special aftermarket Sports Tonneau that covers the rear with flowing buttress headrests. And no matter how many people are along for the ride, this T-bird always gives priority to the driver. That's why the dash and center console are a seamless design focused around you. Your seat individually power adjusts, and the dual-spoke steering wheel is not only on Ford's cool swing-away mount, but it also gives you a fantastic view of the space-age gauges.


This is the kind of engine bay you'll love showing off because a proper Q-code T-bird means Ford's mighty 428 cubic-inch V8. It has a tidy style of good maintenance. So it's a strong-runner that inhales deeply through the four-barrel carburetor. The dual exhaust lets the V8 exhale with dignified authority, and that's the theme for the whole feeling on the road. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make this a smooth and authoritative classic.


This rare color T-Bird is a stunner in style and delivers its big power so smoothly that you'll happily show it off as you drive it near or far. So if you want a classic with premium distinction, you know you can't let this one slip away. Call today!!!
