Description

In 1961, Ford introduced a third generation Thunderbird with a completely new design reflective of the developing space age. The “Bullet Bird”, to which it was commonly referred, has a very elegant design ending with taillight housings which were to remind the viewer of turbines of rocket engines. This was a 4-seater Luxury/Sports Car which was powered by a 390 cubic inch, 300 horsepower V-8 engine coupled to a 3-speed “Cruise-O-Matic” transmission. WIth a power top which disappeared into the trunk with a power lid, the car also was offered with “Swing-Away” steering wheel, to facilitate ease of entry and exit, and tinted glass as options. Available in hardtop or convertible form, the 1962 T’Birds also introduced the “Sports Roadster'' model. This transformed the look of the car from a 4-seater to a 2-seater Sports Car with a long, sweeping rear deck using a beautifully-designed fiberglass tonnean cover which cover the rear area and gave the car a fabulous look. Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels were standard on the car and added to the sporty look. The “Sports Roadster” package was expensive and just 1,427 of these cars were built. Although there are many roadster clones and cars ordered with similar options, this is a Classic True Factory Sports Roadster, confirmed by the 76B vin plate. It underwent an “Open Checkbook Restoration” including Exterior, Interior, Chrome, Top and Mechanics. This Classic Rare Roadster is finished in Stunning Rangoon Red (J) with Red Interior (55) and White Soft Top.
