1960 FORD THUNDERBORD 2 DOOR HARDTOP C-824 After years of living in the first-generation Thunderbird's shadow, the first of the 4-seater Birds are finally getting some serious respect. No longer bargain-basement specials, dialed-in cars like this gorgeous 1960 Ford T-Bird hardtop are seriously hot collectables that are also exceptionally nice to drive. The classic combinations never go out of style, and the Thunderbird wears metallic rose paint that highly complements the car. Paint and bodywork are well done and, it does look fantastic heading down the road or at your local cruise-in. Delightful chrome details abound on the second-generation Thunderbird, including the little ornaments atop each front fender, the Thunderbird script on the rocket-shaped body side moldings, and the bright chrome gills on the rear quarters, again reinforcing Ford's fondness of rocket-inspired design. The chrome probably cost as much as a new Cadillac to restore. A set of dual headlights up front and set of triple rocket-style taillights out back finish the look, and we have to say, this is one great looking Square Bird. Dolled up like a Lincoln, it has infinitely more style and just as much luxury thanks to the beautifully finished buckets that are fresh and crisply presented, a factory center console, plush carpet, and a gorgeous cockpit-style dash. The off-white faced instruments are fitted into a shiny aluminum panel that looks like a high-end clock face, with secondary controls just underneath. Power windows with switches on the center console are a nice feature on any luxury car, this big Bird is nicely appointed. The original AM radio is still in the dash. The back seat likely hasn't had a passenger since it was refinished, and out back the trunk is presented with matching carpet, and full-sized spare. Under the hood you'll find a rebuilt Y-code 352ci V8, which offered a factory rating of 300 horsepower thanks to a 4-barrel carburetor on top. It's plenty for the stylish Bird, which moves through traffic with an effortless ease that makes the driver feel like a million bucks. The engine bay is tidy, and includes the original air cleaner with Interceptor Thunderbird Special stickers on it, chrome Edelbrock valve covers, and high-mounted expansion tank for the cooling system. Things like power steering and brakes are standard equipment and there's an astounding amount of room under the hood that makes service easy. It's backed by a 3-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic and a set of 3.10 gears out back, meaning that this white hardtop will cruise all day at highway speeds without breaking a sweat. An upgraded dual exhaust system has a great sound that's appropriate for a luxury car like this. Kelsey-Hayes style 14 inch chrome wire wheels are fitted inside a set of P215/75R14 American Classic wide whitewall tires for a proper look. The days of cheap, high-quality Square Birds are gone, and this slick white hardtop will always find an enthusiastic audience. This car comes with numerous receipts, documents and a reproduction manual. Almost everything on this car has been replaced during restoration. New interior, runs super cool, Nearly new tires, new brakes, new water pump, and all power windows work! Call us a call today!
