1962 Ford Thunderbird 2DR Hardtop: The iconic good looks of the T-Birds from this era are hard to miss. They were never small nor light weight but that are definitely cool and a blast to drive. This Thunderbird came from a small TX collection and looks to have been restored about 10-15 years ago. While the interior and mechanical components look and operate like new, the paint has received a few parking lot dings and chips. Overall we would rate this Ford as a Very Strong Driver quality vehicle. Features and options include; 390 V8, Auto, Power Steering, Factory A/C, Power Windows, Tilt-Away Steering, Tinted Glass, Retro AM/FM/Cassette, Chrome Bumpers, Chrome Mirrors, Dual Exhaust, Spare Tire (w/Cover), Factory 14" Spoked Wheels, and New Hankook Optimo White Wall Tires!

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.

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.
