After the re-styling of the Ford Thunderbird in 1964, which was the 4th generation bird, sales were very strong with a reported 92,465 cars sold. This was a 50% increase from the previous year. This was also the only year ever that the word "Thunderbird" was on the front hood instead of the image.
The revised model was initially offered as a hardtop, a convertible or a landau with vinyl roof and simulated landau irons. The tonneau cover and wire wheels of the Sports Roadster remained available as a dealer-installed option, although only 50 were sold from the factory.
The standard 6.4 Liter 390 cubic inch engine rated at 300 HP would propel the big bird to a top speed of 120 MPH and a 0-60 time in 11 seconds all while doing it with a tremendous ride and style. The new look they were going for was a more formal or classy look as the sports cars of the US took shape in to the muscle cars of the era.
The '64 offered here has been owned and loved by the same owner for the last 34 years and has been to many shows, road trips and has been rebuilt 2 times. The 390 v8 has been rebuilt to a 394 and is paired with its automatic transmission. The car has a few bumps and bruises here and there but is overall very solid and presentable. The t-bird rides on new white wall tires. The car has power windows, currently only the drivers window appears to be working.
