Featured and up for sale in our Orlando Florida showroom is this beautiful and rare 1965 Ford Thunderbird Special Landau. This is actually a special 10th anniversary model, of which Ford only built 4500 so it'll definitely stand out from the crowd. The color is called Emberglow Metallic, and that’s exactly what it looks like in person: a smoldering glow. No, it's not a trailer queen but there's no denying that this car has some serious eyeball appeal. The chrome, including both bumpers, the grille, and many of the trim pieces that make these cars so wonderful to look at, is in excellent condition. Shelby fans will recognize the wide sequential taillights, and even the padded landau roof appears to be original!
Personal luxury reached its zenith in the mid-60s, and with incredible competition in the form of the Buick Riviera and all-new Oldsmobile Toronado, the Thunderbird offers first-class accommodations. The code 7 Parchment with Emberglow appointments (limited to this special Landau model) interior is in outstanding condition, with comfortable buckets flanking a stylish center console and enough room in back for three. The swing-away steering wheel is a neat option, and this car also includes things like factory A/C to reinforce its luxury mission. The gauges are clearly inspired by aircraft design, with a wide speedometer with big numbers and a row of individual auxiliary gauges underneath. The factory AM/FM radio is still fully operational .The trunk is downright massive, with a fully upholstered look that’s as slick as the rest of the car, and there's a full-sized spare up on its own shelf.
The only engine in 1965 was a 4-barrel 390, and it moves the ‘Bird effortlessly with a nice muscle car rumble. The big V8 and surrounding engine bay is in good order and looks mostly original with factory black and gold paint on the engine itself and correct decals on the air cleaner. Power steering and power front disc brakes were standard equipment as well, and with the 3-speed automatic, this car is a pleasure to drive anywhere, whether it’s to work each day or on a cross-country trip. With 3.00 gears out back, it’s pleasant on the highway, and you'll never get tired of the pleasant V8 burble from the twin glasspack-style mufflers. Original wheels with shiny color-matched wheelcovers give it an authentic look whitewall radials. This clean Thunderbird offers a lot of car for not a lot of money, this car is a great opportunity to get on the A-list for a bargain price.
