For Sale: 1964 Ford Thunderbird in Macedonia, Ohio

Vehicle Description

Exceptional high-end restoration. Roadster tonneau, wire wheels, A/C, power windows, and more. Fully operational convertible top. Runs and drives superbly, beautifully detailed throughout, ready to drive or show at almost any level. Very impressive car!This is unquestionably the finest fourth-gen Thunderbird we've ever featured. No doubt about it, and it was evident from the first moment we laid eyes on this stunning Rangoon Red ragtop. Laser-straight bodywork shows off the tight crease that runs from nose to tail, and you'll note that everything lines up as it moves from panel to panel. Styling is clever, too, because this is an immense car that doesn't look as big as it is, returning some sportiness to the luxury-oriented Thunderbird. Yes, of course, it's still a luxury barge, but that doesn't mean it can't look a little sporting, right? Even the hood scoop is a nice touch that recalls the first 2-seat T-Birds that won America's hearts in 1955. The paint is glossy and deep, probably better than new, and thanks to outstanding care since it was finished, it remains virtually unmarked and showing no signs of age. The shine is brilliant and the red is exactly right-not too orange or too pink. Plenty of bright chrome, all of which has been professionally restored, gives the big 'Bird a dressed-up look. This is a clean, well-dressed, and insanely well-restored car.The red interior is an unusual but welcome look that obviously works well. The restoration work extended to the interior where almost everything is new and it's beautifully done. Correct seat covers, highly detailed door panels, and that awesome dashboard with the floating auxiliary gauges all make this a very special car to drive. The steering wheel is wrapped in leather, which isn't stock but feels great in your hands and you'll note that the factory A/C system has been upgraded with modern Vintage Air components so it's effective and reliable, not to mention easy to service. The gauges are all operational, including the clock, and there's a modern digital AM/FM/cassette radio in the original radio's slot. Other features include power windows, dual power front seats, and the swing-away steering wheel, which was so popular that it became standard equipment. And these cars have what is quite likely the coolest back seat ever created. And yes, the black power convertible top is fully operational, stowing itself in the fully finished trunk with the touch of a button. It's also worth noting that this car includes a full roadster tonneau (not shown in photos) which will be shipped with the car. The trunk, as I mentioned, is fully finished with a correct mat set, matching full-sized spare on a chrome wire wheel, and a correct jack assembly stashed in the quarter panel.In 1964, all Thunderbirds used the Z-code 390 cubic inch V8, which makes 300 horsepower and enough torque to make the T-Bird feel pretty quick. This one was rebuilt to stock specs and runs beautifully, starting easily and idling with a kind of muscular thrum that feels powerful yet luxurious. Detailing on the engine is show-worthy, with gold tinwork on a black block, reproduction decals, and a new wiring harness. Fittings and hardware are correct throughout, showing that someone cared about going the extra mile. The only non-stock item of note is the A/C compressor, but the lighter, more efficient unit blends in nicely. The only transmission available was a 3-speed automatic, but it is the right choice for the luxury-oriented 'Bird. Shifts are smooth enough to be almost unnoticeable and with 3.00 gears out back, this is an ideal high-speed cruiser that's equally at home on the highway. You'll note that the undercarriage is in excellent condition with no patches or signs of accident repair (these cars are unit-body machines so damage is easy to spot) and all the structural members are in great shape. There's a newer dual exhaust system that's appropriately hushed thanks to proper resonators out back and the suspension and brakes were rebuilt at the time of restoration. Chrome wire wheels look spectacular and carry recent 215/75/15 whitewall radials.Extras include the aforementioned roadster tonneau and an extensive documentation package with a window sticker, shop manual, owner's manuals, ownership history, receipts, and much more.These Thunderbirds are coming on strong in the market and remain some of the most expensive '60s cars to restore. This one is available for a fraction of the cost of restoration, so you're getting an excellent car that's ready to show or drive. On the road, it's a powerful ally that attracts a lot of attention. Easily the best we've seen, so come take a look. Call now!Harwood Motors always recommends and welcomes personal or professional inspections of any vehicle in our inventory prior to purchase.
