1963 Ford Thunderbird ConvertibleThis 1963 Thunderbird Bullet Nose Roadster is a full blown show car that was rotisserie restored with no detail left unturned. It is a World of Wheels feature car and multiple Goodguys winner. Finished in '05 Mustang Redfire, the T-Bird has layer after layer of hand rubbed clear coat that has resulted in the deepest, smoothest finish that we've come across in a long time. The bumpers are filled and the custom tube grill really sets off the front end. The body lines are tight and expertly gapped and the sides are straight as an arrow. Open the hood and the there's more beautiful paint work applied to perfectly finished panels that are secured with stainless jewelry. The engine is bored .30 over and has Edelbrock heads, a performance cam, a Holley Carb. The T-Bird has a custom aluminum radiator with a 17" puller fan and a retrofitted Southern Air AC system. The engine compartment is a sight to be seen but the details don't stop with the underhood area. The interior has been refinished in thick leather and high end Classic Instruments gauges stand in place of the original gauges. Lifting off the roadster fitting reveals leather rear seats and panel inserts. The hood, doors, top, windows, and suspension are all electrically switched via a nine stage system and can be controlled from the interior of the car and also the key fob. The best part of the show is the convertible top mechanism. With the push of a button, the mechanical marvel convertible top puts on its perfectly coordinated display revealing even more detail. All the top motors, lines, and underpinning have been restored and the details have been tastefully accented with that stunning red paint. Look carefully at the photos as amazing details are hiding everywhere you look. This T-Bird could be a trailer queen, but there is not reason to let the car sit. The car has 4-way adjustable Air Ride suspension, four wheel power disc brakes, power steering, and a rebuilt transmission with shift kit. The exhaust is custom made with three mufflers that have been flanged together, not clamped.
For the Ford enthusiast that wants a drivable show car that will blow away the "Jones's," don't wait long as this car is stunning and won't last long.
