1963 Ford Thunderbird.a true survivor, all original. The car was built in Michigan and shipped to new mexico where it stayed until I purchased it on 06/19/2015,no rust anywhere.the car has power windows, power brakes, power steering, power seat and factory air, everything works. I have the original spare tire, never used and the original gold plated ignition key that came with the car. I have paper work listing the 4 previous owners, all from New Mexico and a letter from Lee Iacocca to the 1st owner. The carburetor has been rebuilt and some front end work done and 4 new tires with paper work to document this. The exterior color is Tuscan Yellow and the interior is Pearl Beige. A beautiful car and a great driver for the Thunderbird enthusiast.
Owned and driven for years by the iconic Hollywood star, the car could be bid multiple times higher than the auction’s estimate
Pick of the Day driven less than 80,000 miles since new
Car is being sold because owner lost its indoor storage spot
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.
