Just acquired as part of a 3 T-Bird collection. This is a beautiful
convertible with a lot of nice options including rare factory air.
The car shows really well. It has one heck of a paint job. The body
is is super straight and fits right. Has a smooth glass finish
paint. The jambs, engine bay, underside of hood and trunk are
painted glossy. New weatherstrips. Chrome and trim shine bright.
Hubcaps have the tri-color centers. Convertible top frame is
restored. Crisp white top. Power top system upgraded to solid state
electronics. Upholstery, door panels, carpet have been replaced.
Dash pad is excellent. Has seat belts front and back. Includes a
binder of restoration and maintenance receipts. The owner charged
the a/c in 2010, it worked. He never used it, needs to be serviced.
Comfortable car to drive. Has all the power accessories and
powerful motor. Has tons of eye appeal, the retractable top also
mesmerizes onlookers. It's dressed to impress!
Owned and driven for years by the iconic Hollywood star, the car could be bid multiple times higher than the auction’s estimate

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.
