Used 1963 Ford Thunderbird for sale in Volo, IL
Wow, this is one of the slickest, sharpest cars I've seen. The body lines make it look like it's moving while it's sitting still. The extra bright red paint and those wide whitewall tires with wire wheels is so sexy. I am around gorgeous cars everyday and this one stands out.
EXTERIOR: Gorgeous. The roadster package includes the 2 seater tonneau cover and Kelsey Hayes wire wheels. The tonneau easily lifts off with 1 person, it weighs hardly anything. It does not interfere with the top at all. The body is clean and straight. The paint is highly polished right to the bottom. Jambs are slick. New sill plates and weatherstrips. All of the trim and chrome sparkles- bumpers, grill, stainless trim etc. The Kelsey Hayes wire wheels sparkle and they have red Thunderbird spinners. New set of wide whitewall radial tires. Convertible top is a new crisp white. The power retractable was just serviced. With a flip of one switch the lid opens, top folds inside and lid closes. Born a red car, code J.
INTERIOR: The inside is also very sharp looking. It is a great design with sporty center console, unique swing away wheel and plenty of chrome. The upholstery has a cool design with actual chrome logos and silver piping. New cushions and upholstery. Door panels and dash pad were replaced. Bright red carpets. The aluminum and chrome sparkle inside too. Has red seat belts and reproduction floormats. Owner's manual is in the glovebox. Really, inside this car is exceptionally nice throughout- the mirror, gauges, steering wheel etc. The lights in the doors work, dash pad was installed properly and fits right, seats are plump and fit tight as a drum.
MOTOR COMPARTMENT: Very nice first impression. Motor has a clean coat of black paint, valve govers and air cleaner are the correct light gold. Inner fenders are gloss red. Radiator support is paint, has caution sticker and rubber flap.
Bottom side of the hood is painted satin black and has the insulations.
TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Very nice and orderly. The liner kit is in good shape.
UNDERSIDE: The floors were restored, all metal. Then painted black. Recent shocks, tailpipes with resonators and fuel tank. Bottom of motor and trans are clean.
Very unique car. There was nothing else designed like this car or featured retractable top or a swing away steering wheel. With the optional roadster package it was even more outstanding then and more so today. This car really presents itself like beauty queen.
