The Ford Thunderbird was introduced in 1955 as a two seater sports convertible to rival Chevrolet's Corvette although it was never marketed as a sports car! In 1958 it gained a second row of seats. The fourth generation (1964-66) was restyled from the third generation of 1961-63 with a more squared off design from the earlier more rounded generation and continued to be offered in Hardtop, Landau and Convertible models. The wheelbase and length were increased in size and in 1965 front disc brakes became standard.
This is a rare opportunity to own a beautiful daily driving original southern California 'Black License Plate' and striking 'Candyapple Red' 1966 Ford Thunderbird in very fine and mostly all original condition throughout. This is one very striking turn-key ready example of the 4th generation T-Bird for any classic American car collector!
