This classic 1965 Ford Thunderbird has some unique twists to it. The ride is effortless with its smooth running 390 cu.in. V-8, automatic transmission, dual exhaust, master guide power steering, power brakes, power adjustable driver's seat, power windows, and power rear vent. Black vinyl bucket seat interior, aftermarket AM/FM /cassette radio, Magic-Aire heater and defroster, and a unique swing away steering column give this classic some jazz. The exterior has some perks as well, including remote driver's side mirror, whitewall radial tires, deluxe factory 3 spoke wheel covers and black vinyl roof with s landau bars.

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.
