I purchased this beautiful 1960 Ford Thunderbird from the Mecum Auction in January 2017 along with a Camaro. After receiving delivery, I have realized that I was over-zealous and did not account for the fact that I only have 3 garage bays. My loss is your gain. This car is spotless. She has been exceptionally maintained. The bumpers have been rechromed. New paint, new tires, and new exhaust. The engine runs smooth and the engine bay appears period correct. The red and white two-tone interior is an attention getter, and the trunk is immaculate. The interior houses the original radio, Ford Magic Aire system, original dashboard, and ashtray. She is comfortably sitting in my garage, but I need my garage bay. You will not need to make any changes to this beauty.

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.
