Thunderbird 1966

Title Status --
Exterior Color Pearl White
Interior Color Black


With its big 390 V8, plenty of luxury features, and a great color theme, this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau delivers that ideal style you demand from a premium classic cruiser.

This was born a Wimbledon White coupe, and while that's a distinctive color, this one turns it up a notch. It was resprayed later in life to a Pearl White. So you get the same tone as the factory intended, but when the sunlight hits the body, this one has a pearlescent radiance that knows how to really attract some eyeballs. Good looking sheetmetal and bright chrome bumpers complete the look of vintage elegance. We love the look of the special Landau coupe because it has the B-pillar ornamentation that gives it a classic style, and T-birds are all about nostalgia. And this vintage elegance is in all the right details, including the rear fender skirts, turbine-style wheel covers, and full black vinyl roof.

The roof not only looks good, but it also is a preview of the interior color. You can tell these 4th gen cars were about demonstrating personal luxury with bucket seats for everyone, including the rear. But the driver is always the most important, and the way the wood-like center console is formed around you makes sure everyone knows it. The gauges have an artful look, and they are supplemented by newer auxiliary readouts. This has a ton of distinct premium features, including a power driver's seat, overhead console, power locks, and power windows. You'll even love the details, like the working courtesy lights and the classic swing-away steering column. There's room for improvement, including if you want to get the factory air conditioning blowing cold again. But overall, this one continues to uphold the upper-class classic you expect from a Thunderbird.

The 390 cubic-inch V8 was a great pairing with the T-bird, and it's the correct displacement for this Z-code coupe. This big V8 keeps the luxury attitude with plenty of horsepower and torque to keep everyone happy. It fires up easily, idles smoothly, and makes a nice sound out of the dual exhaust - it's not like a muscle car, but instead, a confident and mature rumble. Plus, the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs make this an ideal all-day cruiser.

The sale comes complete with the owner's manual and service manuals. Thunderbirds have always represented style, but this one also presents good value for an interesting classic driver. Call now!
