Description of 1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

A 1965 Ford Thunderbird is always going to grab your attention. So we know you stopped to look at this droptop because its red-on-red appearance is the true way to present timeless cruising elegance. And it's affordable price is what makes it irresistible.
A fourth-generation T-bird is a top car for a lot of us. It has an interesting style that will likely never be repeated, and even each of the three model years this was offered was distinctive. For example, attention-grabbing details like the hood scoop and sequential taillights were not offered across the entire 4th-gen. But more than just its history attracted you to this one. Red paint with a white top and whitewall tires is an unbeatable combination. It was given a respray later in life, and now this distinctive droptop has even more standout presence rendered in a glossy red. And speaking of shine, these Thunderbirds had brightwork that could be measured in acres, and so it's great to see it's complete right down to the factory wheel covers. Plus, this is one of the most artful years for bumper design. The font frames the grille and dips below the headlights to give this convertible a distinctive face. And we all love how the rear chrome panel fully frames the dip in the trunk's sheetmetal.
As much as we like the way this looks with the top up, it's even better with the roof down. That's because the red interior almost seamlessly matches the exterior for a terrific total package. Ford gave these T-birds space for four people in individual comfort, but the dash and center console layout is an instant reminder that the driver is king. The gauges have that 60s-cool setup that is so intricate that we know no factory would ever dare try it again in modern times. The ribbon-style speedometer sits on top, and four fashionable individual round pods finish the artful package. The controls for the heat/defrost and upgraded AM/FM/cassette are mounted in a center console where the bright surround shows it's clearly yours to command. Plus, the power folding roof and power windows are there, too. So you can fully open this cruiser up to the world without ever leaving the comfort of the driver's seat.
The 390 cubic-inch V8 is exactly what you want to see when you lift the hood on this Z-code car. This big block with four-barrel carburetor has all the right power and torque to keep the T-bird cruising effortlessly. The V8 fires up easily and makes a nice sound out of the dual exhaust it's not like a muscle car, but instead, a confident and mature rumble. It has power steering that's fingertip easy, and a suspension built to glide down the road. Add in the three-speed automatic transmission and front disc brakes (new for 1965), and you've got a stunner that's an easy all-day runner.
Complete with owner's manual, this is a beautiful T-bird with a bold red presentation and a great price. It has all the best distinction to start turning heads this weekend, but to do that, you first need to call today!
