Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1960 Ford Thunderbird has V8 power, a road-owning stance, and a cool color combo inside and out. Best of all, this total package is offered for a value price.
This car is all about style. It starts up front where the chrome bumper and grille take center stage. Plus, the upper cease of the headlights creates a distinct line that flows all the way into the doors. And the lower one helps frame the front fender flares. There's a bullet-like line in the door that remains continuous thanks to fender skirts and the form-fitting rear bumper. The line of the tailfin is so consuming that even the door handles were incorporated into it. Oh yes, this Thunderbird was an expensive car when new, and the details love to showcase the intricacy of opulence. It's all finished in an updated maroon with a nice metallic glow and a bright white roof to show off the hardtop profile. And the full package is done with an eye to be stylish without being too fancy to drive. And as you look through all the details, you'll really see a car that's ready to cruise.
You'll love rolling down all windows on a pillarless hardtop like this, because after all, that's part of the fun of the bigger 2nd-gen T-Bird. And more of that cruiser feeling comes back with upholstery that was updated later in life to have a full tuck and roll style. And while the white on the seats, doors, and headliner have a dash of sophisticated style, the plush black carpeting means it's easy to invite others along for the ride without worrying about dirty shoes. And just like the exterior, the interior has plenty of vintage style. The lower dash wraps around into the door trim, and the upper dash has a cool dual cowl style and the classic AM radio still in the middle for display. And your gauges almost look like timepieces when set into the jewelry-like bright dash panel.
Under the hood is a proper 352 cubic-inch V8. Just like the rest of the car, this has a highly original-style presentation, right down to the classic white air grabber and valve covers. So it's no surprise this is believed to be the original powerplant to the car. And while the look is vintage, what you don't see is a newer Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke. It helps this V8 fire up and run with ease. So this classic remains a great boulevard machine, especially when aided by the right features such as the three-speed automatic transmission, power brakes, and power steering.
The sale comes complete with the owner's manual. This is a big coupe with big style, and yet, it still has an affordable price. Don't miss this deal, call today!
