Description:

1966 Ford Thunderbird

1966FORD THUNDERBIRD Hardtop

NO RESERVE !!!

because I believe a classic vehicle is worth as much as the next caretaker is willing to pay!


This a "turn key" and "drive anywhere" THUNDERBIRD that is numbers matching and well documented. This is truly one of the most reliable vehicles in my collection. Starts with ease and never smokes or drinks. She glides down the road at 65+ without any issues. Some consider the 1966 BIRD "the last of the real THUNDERBIRDS". The only reason I am selling is because I have ran out of room for all my toys, o its time to find a new caretaker for the BIRD.

VEHICLE HIGHLIGHTS

  • ALL gauges work properly; including the unique Thunderbird speedometer
  • Sequential tail lights and fender mounted directional signals work perfectly
  • FACTORY installed AM/FM radio works great
  • ALL body panels are marked with original factorystamping and have not been touched since 1966. No repaints on record
  • Drive train has been untouched and is in its original condition
  • A/C compressor was converted to R132 by 2nd owner and is date stamped 2002 (receipts included)
  • A/C will freeze you out and heater will make you toasty
  • Both Interior and Exteriorchrome is in excellent condition
  • NO RUST or bubbling paint. Great patina
  • Swing away steering wheel works perfectly
  • NO CRACKS IN DASH - very common issue in Birds
  • Trunk has original upholstery but interior carpet was replaced with correct color and pattern from California Custom Carpets
  • Numerous receipts dating back into the 80's and 90's

  • New coil and transistorized ignition installed (receipt included)

Based upon overall condition, believe 57219 miles to be the correct mileage according to several documents from prior owner and Oklahoma DMV records but I cannot guarantee mileage. Numerous pieces of vehicle documentation come with purchase of this "BIRD", ncluding original invoice, arranty card, nd repro window sticker.

I am NOT a dealer but just a collector that has run out of space for his toys! I have sold numerous vehicles on eBay and made some great friends along the way. Please ask my any questions you might have and I will respond immediately. Additional photos upon request. Over-sea buyers are welcome!
