Great Price Per Lb: 1965 Ford Thunderbird

The original Ford Thunderbird was launched in 1955 as a lithe two-seater convertible to compete with European imports and Chevy’s Corvette. The T-bird actually outsold the original Corvette by large numbers in the first few years, but Ford’s product planners thought they could do even better by adding rear seats and redesigning the Thunderbird for more comfort and less sportiness. By 1965 the Thunderbird was so bloated and comfort oriented that you would have cross shopped a Lincoln against the Vette, but that doesn’t mean a cheap used Thunderbird doesn’t have a spot in your classic car garage.

1965 Ford Thunderbird. Runs, drives. 390 Motor, automatic. Good seats, headliner, minor rust. Front disc brakes replaced, rear brakes inspected and good. New dual master brake, new power steering pump. Have a lot of additional chrome. Needs new tires. It was my project, can’t work on it any more (physical issues). Odometer mileages estimated, sure it has rolled over.
