Wheelbase: 113″ Following tradition, after the three-year production cycle of the 1961-1963 “Bullet Bird,” 1964 saw the introduction of the fourth-generation Thunderbird, often known as the “Flair Bird” among enthusiasts. While retaining the same basic structure and dimensions of the previous models, the new Thunderbird’s exterior styling was completely revised with a lengthened hood and a shortened, more formal roofline. Some innovations intended for the new Thunderbird were delayed and only reached production in 1965. Most notably, front disc brakes became standard for 1965, and the dramatic sequential rear turn signals were delayed in certain states. For 1966, the last year of the “Flair Bird,” styling was again dramatically revised and decidedly sportier, with the front end now featuring a large “Thunderbird” emblem and a steeply raked forward “egg crate” grille, while a large singular taillight dominated the rear of the car. The Thunderbird offered here is simply a great antique car for someone on a budget. It runs and drives quite nicely and is quite reliable. Please go through all the photos and give me a call on this one.
