800 Derita Road, Ste. A
Q-code... in cars it means the ultimate sleeper, and so this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau Coupe might just be the ultimate Q-ship Q-code. After all, it has a terrific vintage look, nice A/C interior, and an enhanced 428 V8 lying in wait.
This coupe has a first impression of pure sophistication. The factory-correct Emberglo Metallic was given a respray later in life. So you get the boldness similar to red, but with a more precious metal kind of hue. And the special Landau roof is covered in premium white vinyl and it has a jewel-like ornamentation. This was the era when the Thunderbird really looked like Lincoln had made them with the way the front bumper follows the contour of the angular nose, and the rear one surrounds the wide emblem taillights. We love how the factory wheel covers have a hint of the color-matched steelies showing around the rim. There are even more great details, like the fender-mounted turn indicators, rear fender skirts, and the sequential rear turn signals. So the first impression is pure class.
The white roof coordinates nicely with the full parchment interior, and even the exterior Emberglo goes nicely with the deep red carpeting. So this is a well harmonized package inside and out. This was all about providing individual luxury, and so everyone has their own bucket seat. There's even cold-blowing air conditioning so that family and friends ride in true comfort. But this T-bird gives priority to the driver. That's why the dash and center console are a seamless design focused around you. The dual-spoke steering wheel is not only on Ford's cool swing-away mount, but it also gives you a fantastic view of the space-age gauges.
This is the kind of engine bay you'll love showing off, because it has the unmistakable look of performance. The exterior Emberglo return on the fender walls and firewall like a bright beacon. It funnels your attention to the big block with ribbed valve covers and matching air topper. The "custom built" plaque on the valve cover lets us to believe the correct Q-code 428 cubic-inch V8 is a bit hotter than even the powerful one the factory put on the road. And upgrades like the Edelbrock intake back this up. The big block inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with dignified authority out of the dual exhaust. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, it's also a great all-around cruiser.
This is a cool big block T-bird with plenty of extra power and panache to offer. So at a price like this, you know you need to hurry on this deal. Call now!
