GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this absolutely killer 1962 Ford Thunderbird Convertible! This stunning example comes in a nice bright red paint job complemented by a clean red interior and blue convertible top. The convertible top is in good condition and functions as it should. Powering the Thunderbird is believed to be the original 390 cubic inch V8 motor mated to a smooth-shifting automatic transmission. Standard features include power steering, power brakes, heat, A/C, and more. This T-Bird came from Alabama where the original owner lived. The past owner performed a restoration in 1988 on everything on the car. Before coming in here the brake system was serviced and non stops as it should.

1962 saw strong sales figures of 78,011 units (including 9,884 convertibles) and the introduction of the Thunderbird Sports Roadster. The Sports Roadster was a limited production version of the convertible which added 48 spoke Kelsey-Hayes designed wire wheels, special badges to the front fenders and a passenger side grab bar to the front dashboard. The most striking addition to the Sports Roadster was a fiberglass tonneau cover which covered the back seat of the car and created a two seater appearance. 1,427 Sports Roadsters were produced in 1962, including 120 models with the special M Code option noted below. Early models suffered from problems related to their specially-designed wire wheels. The problem was quickly corrected when Elvis Presley was involved in an accident in which one of the Kelsey-Hayes wheels collapsed during hard turning.
