The 1966 Ford Thunderbird is the perfect mix of a distinct single-year design with the lowest production numbers of the fourth-generation. But it's rarity is not the only reason why you want it. We know you stopped to look at this drop-top because its factory-correct red-on-red appearance is an excellent way to present timeless V8 cruising elegance.
This T-bird is from those perfect few years where the design somehow was able to blend the square second generation and rounded third generation into an artful and iconic design. And it only gets better when you realize that the 1966 car was given a very distinct front end only used for this year. Also, with less than 5,100 convertibles produced, it's the rarest of its generation. But the real irresistibility factor comes from the details. The trim around the hood power dome, factory hubcaps, and so much more let you know this is quite a complete machine. The bridgework could be measured in in acres, and so it's great to see that this one is looking correct, right down to the unique bumpers. The rear is an artful wraparound piece that follows the stylish dip in the trunk, and the front one is an uninterrupted piece that gets to reflect the wide T-bird emblem leading the way. The car's correct Candyapple Red now has a hint of clearcoat shine, and that always gives these classics a look of distinction. The total style has a stock and gracefully aged-in look that some of us love on our classics. Others may just see a value price for this much drop-top distinction. Regardless on how you view this Thunderbird, there is an overall attraction to a car that's this complete well over a half century since it left the factory. You can see it has been given the right respect and investments along the way, including a new convertible top.
Another place you can recognize quality car is on the interior. The door panels, seats, and dash are all in excellent condition, and so you'll happily power down the roof to show off this red-on-red style. There's plenty of room in back for adults, but this personal luxury machine is very much geared toward the driver. In fact, the center console seamlessly wraps into the dash to be like your own driver's cocoon. The gauges have that 1960s-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 390 cubic-inch V8 is exactly what you want to see when you lift the hood. It's correct for this Z-code car, and it's even a 1966 date coded motor. This is a highly original style setup, right down to the correct four-barrel carb on top of this big V8. Plus, we have receipts documenting about $1,500 invested in the last few months for key maintenance items like the starter, fuel pump, and brakes. That makes for a V8 that runs strong, and it loves to produce a nice sound out of the dual exhaust. Its tune is not like a muscle car, but instead, a confident and mature rumble. That's because a proper Thunderbird is all about being an easy cruiser. It's also why you have power steering, a three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and front discs.
Complete with maintenance records and service manuals, this is the all-red T-bird that gives you rarity, distinction, and power. It's all part of a terrific driving package you need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
