The Thunderbird 390 Special V-8 combined with Ford's Cruise-O-Matic transmission is rock solid and dependable. With 300 horsepower under the hood, and a 3:00 to 1 gear ratio, this T-bird accelerates and cruses effortlessly. Power steering and suspension is tight. Ride and cornering are excellent. Power brakes with front disk, rear drums with a dual master cylinder for safety. Factory air conditioning, heater and power vents are included for comfort. Swing away steering wheel and automatic release parking brake are included for convenience. Front shoulder straps and rear lap belts for safety.
The automatic convertible top is in excellent condition and its operation is a sight to behold. After releasing the front latches, simply hold down the button and a myriad of things happen with the end result being the top completely hidden in the trunk. You’re left with a clean aerodynamic look with no cover to snap in place like many convertibles.
The sound system has been upgraded to a “factory looking” 500 watt powerhouse. No matter what type of music you prefer, this system will belt out your tunes even with the top down at highway speeds.
Many original parts including fender skirts, wheels, and hubcaps come with the car in case you every want to go back to the original look. Although you won’t need any now, parts and accessories are readily available for this popular American icon.
Check out the pictures and buy with confidence, there will be no disappointments here. This is one of the best driving, eye turning trouble-free T-birds anywhere.

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
The Ford Thunderbird has gone through many iterations during its design and market focus.
After a visit to Europe in the early 1950s, Henry Ford II decided he wanted to build a two-seat, convertible sports car for the American public.
After Ford reinvented the Thunderbird as a four-seat luxury car for 1958, some still pined for the trim, exclusive, two-seat sports car that Thunderbird was when introduced in 1955.
