1963 Ford Thunderbird Description
Up for your consideration is my 1963 Thunderbird. Being from a dry climate, there is ABSOLUTELY NO RUST underneath. No heavy rubberized undercoating, just nice original good Ford tin. Paint has NO ORANGE PEEL, was re-sprayed decades ago and is holding up very well, it looks GREAT! Engine is a smooth running 390 4 barrel that pulls strongly with a crisp shifting Cruise-O-Matic transmission. Tires are newer radials with no cracks and good tread. Wheels have been painted and full baby moons have been installed. Original wire caps included, but they rub on the fender skirts. Interior looks like new. It may be a reproduction, or an amazing original showing little signs of wear. No cracks in the dash pad.
It goes down the road just fine with no pulling or funny noises, and the 4 wheel power drum brakes stop this rolling sculpture with ease. All ball joints and steering professionally inspected and reported to be in very good condition. Equipped with dual exhaust with pitch-perfect mufflers terminating with chrome exhaust tips. Chrome bumpers look great, they may have been re-chromed, as they shimmer in the California Sun. The stainless trim gleams. Plastic lenses are nice, no cracks. Rubber weatherstripping looks good, not dry. Doors close securely and easily, no sagging or sprung hinges. Windows crank up and down smoothly. Radio is a Kenwood CD with 4 speakers. Original AM radio is included. Trunk is covered in original carpet. Door sills look great, carpets are in great shape, may be nice original, possibly replaced.
