For sale in our Chicago showroom is a rare 1960 Ford Thunderbird Sunroof coupe. This gold metallic beauty is finished with a white hardtop with classic porthole windows that really make this 'bird stand out in the crowd. By the late 1950's and early 1960's automobiles were becoming noted for modern style of the time and the Ford Thunderbird was no exception. From bumper to bumper this car has all of the chrome and bright work one would expect of a car of this era.
One of the first things you will notice on this car is the Porthole windows that were common on the '55 - '57 Thunderbirds but not available and on the 1960 model. As you glance up you will notice the factory chrome wind deflector for the sunroof option on this car. It is believed that less than 2,600 cars left the factory with this option that cost $212 in 1960 making this one scarce 'bird in deed.
This beauty was not your average Ford of the day as the Thunderbird was introduced as a "personal luxury" car that competed with nameplates such as Cadillac and Lincoln and did not disappoint when it came to options. In addition to the factory sunroof this classic cruiser features power steering, power brakes, power windows, fender skirts, wide whitewall tires and power seats. All switches and knobs including the steering wheel are finished in a wonderful ivory-shade of white and the seats have been refinished in a delightful medium tan that matches the metallic gold paint beautifully.
Under that large hood you will find the original 352 4V big block V8 with dress up kit that has been rebuilt along with the Cruise-O-Matic transmission that shifts very smoothly and allows this car to get you up to highway speed without hesitation. Additional restoration includes the re-chroming of the front and rear bumper, new Coker tires, new exhaust with glass packs, shocks, new carpeting and a recent paint job. If you have been looking for that unique classic that is ready to drive and turn some heads don't let this Thunderbird pass you by.
