4610 Pet Lane
This 1964 Ford Thunderbird might just be the most affordable way to take home a comfortable cruiser that also turns heads the moment it leaves the garage. In fact, with proper V8 power and a cool color combo, this is a classic coupe that really has a lot of driving appeal.
This T-bird has a true classic style. It mixes some of the aggressive muscle car looks of the 1960s with the elegance you demand of a Thunderbird. That's how you get a shark-like nose and hood scoop artfully blended with the formal hardtop. Turquoise is the factory-correct color, and it has been resprayed later in life to give it a good metallic gloss in the sunshine. The chrome bumpers are some of the best-integrated forms ever put on a vehicle. The front has a swoopy design that frames the headlights and surrounds the grille. In the rear, it's a bright end cap for one of the most interesting trunk lines to ever hit the road. So it's great to see it all looking so bright and complete. But remember, this is a driver's car, so there's nothing too fancy to prevent you from hitting the road on a whim. The wheels are even upgraded to classic Cragar SS units for more of the muscle car feel, and at the same time, allow you to fit better driving tires.
The factory-correct turquoise looks nice against the exterior color. The value price leaves room in your budget if you want to upgrade, improve, and/or personalize. But this also currently goes to the heart of a driver-quality car. From day one, it's quite comfortable with everyone having a bucket seat. A center console was standard equipment, and there was even an upgrade to R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) The dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a terrific view of the full gauge package. And the ribbon-style speedometer with pod-like auxiliary readouts is pure 1960s cool.
The big 390 cubic-inch V8 with a four-barrel carburetor on top was the only motor available in '64, and that's because it had the horsepower and torque to keep everyone happy. This one looks like it has been treated to the right maintenance over the years, and the way it fires up and runs reaffirms it. The three-speed automatic transmission knows how to smoothly handle the stout power. And power steering and power brakes keep this an all-around easy cruiser.
