Terrific paint, big V8 power, loaded A/C interior, and an overall solid investment to create a well-executed personal luxury vehicle. So look over all the details of this 1962 Ford Thunderbird Landau, and you'll discover a classic cruiser that's made to still be a stunner today.

This is truly art on wheels. And there's likely no car company willing to make the investment today to get the intricate sheet metal and chrome that Ford used to create their top-of-the-line luxury car. This is the perfect merger of soft curves with sharp creases. It starts up front where a sleekly rounded hood ends at a point to give the Thunderbird a true beak. And there's a complete chrome line that runs from this sharp front to the tailfin. You would not be able to see this all so well if this were not a professionally restored example. The red paint has an attention-grabbing finish; the chrome is brightly polished; and the panels are straight with a good fit. And thunderbird fans instantly recognize the vinyl top with special landau bar trim that gives this coupe its distinctive name. This must look so good because 1962 was the first year for this premium trim level. You also have all the best in vintage details, like wire wheels, wide whitewalls, and rear fender skirts. There's even a continental kit that comes with the sale.

The special black roof is a nice preview of the black interior, and the added red floor mats make for a thoughtfully coordinated style inside and out. Everyone gets sculpted individual seats, and you can tell from their condition that there was an investment in quality with this car. It retains the best in classic style with the bright trim that flows from the door panels to the dash and center console. There are cool vintage features like the working dash courtesy lights and swing-away steering wheel. And any upgrades are well-integrated ones. This includes the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner and factory vents now blowing cold R134a air conditioning. And while this is a great car to share with everyone, a personal luxury cruiser like this always makes sure the driver is a priority. So you get a power adjusting bucket seat. Plus, the premium power windows mean you never have to level the driver's seat to show off the pillarless hardtop profile.

When you open the hood, you can see that there was money spent in getting this looking extra tidy. And the shine from the polished air grabber and Thunderbird script valve covers perfectly capture the Thunderbird's premium and sporty dual nature. So you know you'll love showing off every inch of this classic. But more than just look great, Ford's large 390 cubic-inch V8 is topped with a four-barrel carburetor, so it certainly has the power to move this cruising coupe around with ease. The V8 fires up nicely with an authoritative hum out of the dual exhaust that seems perfect for this mature T-Bird. The three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and power brakes all work in harmony to help keep the ride luxurious.

This is a beautiful first-year Landau T-Bird with a standout presence. So don't miss this true luxury cruiser, call today!!!
