In our Houston Showroom is a wonderful 1961 Ford Thunderbird hardtop. The third generation of the Ford Thunderbird was a large departure from the much more art deco styling of the second generation T-Bird. The new personal luxury car from Ford featured much more sleek body work. The taillights were reminiscent of rocket boosters, showing the influence of the space race on design at this period in American history. This particular vehicle is colored in a wonderful and subtle Silver outside and black and silver inside. The hub cabs and white wall tires just fit the look of this Thunderbird perfectly. Under the hood is a very clean engine bay filled with a Ford 390 CID FE V8 As you reach for the door, you will notice that the handle has been very cleverly shaped into the belt line of the car. Inside is the famous swing away steering wheel. When the vehicle is in park, the wheel can be moved 18 inches to the right, allowing easier entry and exit. It has an extremely modern minimalistic and comfortable interior. This Thunderbird is ready to cruise the boulevard or to your local car show with AC, power brakes, power steering, power windows, new battery, new shocks, new exhaust and belts.
