Description for Ford Thunderbird 1966

Stunning - Thunderbird!
Thunderbird'shave always represented style. This pampered, 51 year old, all original beauty, is no exception and offers good value for a feature-filled classic driver. This classic has no (zero) leaks. It does not smoke - does not burn oil and has no rust, or rust repairs. This is an unaltered exceptional classic and even comes with the original keys. This T-Bird originated from the U.S. West Coast.
This is one very nice 1966 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Hardtop Coupe! This T-Bird is a head turner and a real pleasure to drive! It's loaded with great options including the original Z code 390 CID V8 Power-Plant, original Automatic C6 Transmission, original 4 Barrel Carb, Tilt Away Steering Wheel, Power Steering, Power Brakes, and more! This restored T-Bird is a very nice classic inside and out. It's priced to sell ASAP. If you would like to see the vehicle in person, please contact me.
This T-Bird has been garaged throughout its life. It has never been in a collision and has never suffered any weather related damage. All body lines are factory straight. A Vehicle History Report is available upon request.
This coupe has kept the factory correct attitude and is "code correct" throughout. At the heart of this Thunderbird is a Very Strong - "Z" code 390 CID Power-Plant still sporting the ORIGINAL 4 barrel carburetor, intake manifold, exhaust manifolds, valve covers, air cleaner housing, etc... The original drive-train and supporting systems are still in place and have been rebuilt or replaced with original FoMoCo parts. This T-Bird sounds great too with the factory style true dual exhaust system. The Power-Plant is backed by the Original - newly refurbished C6 automatic transmission. Originality does not mean a lack of maintenance. It is easy to tell by the condition of the wires, hoses, belts, mechanical, electric, and vacuum systems that this classic T-Bird has received the proper care.
The big block 390 V8, topped with a four-barrel carburetor is a great pairing with the T-Bird. It has plenty of horsepower and torque to keep everyone happy.The V8 fires up easily and the factory dual exhaust makes a nice confident mature sound. This Classic does not smoke and there are no leaks. The newly refurbished original transmission solidly engages and shifts on-time and smoothly. Combined with power steering and disk brakes, this is an ideal daily driver, cross-country runner, or weekend show car.
The suspension and drive line are in excellent condition as are the electric and vacuum systems. All of the original chrome and stainless exterior body trim and moldings are original and in Very Nice condition including the original badging, original bumpers, grill, headlight surrounds and stainless wheel covers. The trunk is clean and sports the original liner, bumper jack and lug wrench. A full size "red line" spare is mounted too.
These Thunderbirds had bright-workthat could be measured in acres, and this one is complete and all original. The beautiful front bumper follows the contour of the angular nose and the rear bumper surrounds the wide emblem taillights. Even the details are original and correct - like all the large T-Bird emblems across the grille, theroof pillars, and spanning the taillights. You even get them in the correct turbine-style wheel covers, and in the steering wheel. This T-Bird is truly a standout for its original factory-correct presentation.
The sea of red on the inside of this Thunderbird demonstrates what personal luxury really means. With roomy bucket seats and the signature wrap-around rear seat, all passengers and the pilot ride in spacious comfort. The center console is artfully integrated into the driver-oriented cockpit. It houses controls for the AM radio (which is original and still operational) and provisions for climate control, front and rear vents, lighting, etc... The "jet-age" gauges have that intricate 60's cool setup. The ribbon-style speedometer sits on top and four individual round pods that finishes the gauge package. Even the trim and moldings are original and intact. Bright and shinny. With style and comfort being a design priority in these T-Birds, the swing-away steering wheel was also standard.
While the original AM radio is in place, this T-Bird has an under the seat, professionally installed, Kenwood Stereo system that offers Bluetooth, Aux cable and remote control capabilities, as well as the option to add a CD changer. All of the gauges, the speedometer, power door locks, climate controls, vents, map lights, etc... work as designed. The clock works intermittently and does not keep reliable time.
