1964 Ford Thunderbird Sport Coupe
1964 Ford Thunderbird Sport Coupe finished in Ice Blue Metallic.
We have all heard the following regarding classic cars: Oh, the vehicle is rarer then Hens Teeth, no other car like it, best in the world, best car on the planet, or the entire solar system for that matter. Occasionally, the aforementioned assertions can be true. More often, they are an aggrandizement of the particular automobiles rarity. That being said this Thunderbird before you I will sum up as RARE. After all, I have no idea if there is another 1964 Thunderbird such as this one. 351 cubic inch 300 horsepower “FUEL INJECTED” engine with headers totaling $9000.00 to build. Options are as follows: Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, electric antenna. Both seats are 10 way power operated. Clarion 10 disc CD player firmly mounted in the trunk. Tilt and Thunderbird’s patented swing-away steering wheel, cruise control, Ribbon speedometer, Kelsey-Hayes true wire wheels, remote controlled side view mirrors, Air Conditioning (currently not-functioning), dual exhaust which exit through the rear gravel pan tastefully, as well as, precisely finished. Dash mounted emergency flashers which were a first introduced in the model year of 1964.
No, the car hasn’t been modified. I’d rather use the term, “Modernized”. The paint and body are unequivocally “PERFECT”. The previous word cannot be compromised, cannot be considered maybe, cannot be interpreted as possible. Chrome, stainless and all other brightwork are in sparkling condition.The attention to detail and exactness is ostensible in any area/section of the Thunderbird.
I suppose the most enviable, “piece of work” would be the location of the automatic shifter. In 1964 Ford Thunderbird featured the shifter lever on the column. Actually throughout the late 1950’s all of the 1960’s and most of the 1970’s the car had a column mounted shifter, that’s it. Well, take a look inside and you will note the shifter is in the center console appearing as if it truly was ordered as such.
