For Sale: 1964 Ford Thunderbird in Troy, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1964 Thunderbird- A/C(!)- Beautiful in "Fiesta Rangoon Red"- 390 CID -Show and Cruise Ready

This Super Sharp Red 1964 Thunderbird is a serious "eye-catching" beauty. The previous previous is in his late 80's and is sad to have to give up his T-Bird because of his failing eyesight. Originally sold through the Kansas City DSO, it spent most of its time in the South. The previous owner lived in Georgia where the restoration was done prior to his purchase. The odometer shows 8,113, which according to the paperwork he has, the engine rebuild and (probably) paintwork was done at that time as well (approximately ten years ago). The restoration was not done with the intent to have it be "100% Authentic". The Thunderbird "expert" will note that the trim tag paint code is V for Bright Light Yellow, the gauges were replaced with AutoMeter (for more accuracy?) and the Wide White Wall radial tires mounted on those cool true Wire Wheels were certainly not original to this 1964 Thunderbird. You'll love the factoryAir Conditioning!Other features include Power Windows, Steering and Brakes, and that iconic "Tilt-Away" Steering wheel (super easy for entry and exit!). It's powered by the 390 Cubic Inch, 300 Horsepower ("Z" Code) Thunderbird engine and Automatic (C6 Cruise-O Matic) Transmission. We think you'll love this 'Bird as much as our seller does, he was proud to drive it and take it to the shows. And, with receipts to prove it, he maintained it like a true "car guy"! Visually, She really stands tall, you'll be proud to be the new owner.
