Ford Thunderbird 390 CID 4BBL V8 1966

General description : For sale in our Detroit showroom is this stunning 1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible. The fourth generation of the Thunderbird which was designed as a large personal luxury car was produced from 1964 through the 1966 model year. This generation of Thunderbirds was restyled to favor a more squared off formal look as opposed to the previous sporty image that had been portrayed. The standard 390 cubic inch V8 engine had 300 horsepower and could reach a top speed of about 120 mph. This 1966 Thunderbird is a very original display of the classic Ford model retaining the correct drive train as well as the original factory interior that looks as it did back in the day it was built. The original power train in this beauty is the 390 cubic inch V8 engine which was rebuilt and has less than 200 miles backed up by the 3 speed automatic transmission which still shifts smoothly throughout all of the gears regardless if you are on a leisurely cruise or hammering on the gas using the big V8’s full potential. This 1966 Thunderbird convertible has a beautiful look with the shine of the bright red gloss of the exterior that is perfectly matched with the white leather interior. As you look into the interior of this Thunderbird you will notice how spacious and luxurious it is and being beautifully accented with the brilliant shine of chrome that compliments the deep red color of the carpet. This stylish Ford is ready to spend its weekends with the top down as it sends the warm breeze of the summer air flowing through the interior and giving you and your passengers a feeling of excitement and freedom as you are out for a ride around town. This stylish convertible Thunderbird is nicely equipped with an AM/FM radio, power steering, power brakes , power windows, power locks, power seat, power convertible top, leather interior and hub caps with white wall radial tires.

About Ford
Ford, founded in 1902, has arguably changed the history of automotive world more than any other car manufacturer by introducing the first people's car Model T in 1908. They had produced more than 15 million cars by the end of the production in 1927, by which T had become obsolete.

Ford launched the first low priced V8 engine powered car in 1932. 1932 V8 was an instant hit with superior handling and performance to many far more expansive cars of the day. No wonder 32 V8 Ford has become such a favourite among hot rodders around the world with 32 Deuce coupe as their icon.

During the war Ford completely shut down civilian vehicle production to dedicate all its resources to the Allied war efforts (1942-45) They used to build B-24 bombers, aircraft engines, jeeps, M-4 tanks, military trucks and Bren-gun carriers and more than 30,000 super-charged Rolls Royce Merlin V-12 engines for Mosquito and Lancaster bombers as well as P-51 Mustang fighters. After the war Ford cars in the USA got bigger and flashier along with their competitors. In the 60's Ford was back in the forefront again when introducing their commercial hit Mustang in 1964. Mustang was so popular the competition had to follow Ford's example and the ponycar phenomenon took over the US. Over the years the ponies grew some muscles until the oil crisis kill finally killed them off.

In the sixties Ford rushed into international motor sports scene with a fury. After unsuccessful Ferrari takeover, when Enzo Ferrari had cut the deal off with Henry Ford II making the latter absolutely boil with fury, Ford turned to Lola in UK to produce a Ferrari beating long distance racer after. The collaboration between Ford and Lola created the mighty Ford GT40 that absolutely beat Ferrari in Le Mans 24 numerous times.

In Europe, Ford introduced some of the most epic race and rally cars of the 60's based on humble family sedans; Cortina GT, Lotus Cortina, Escort Twin Cam, and Escort 1600RS with the iconic Cosworth BDA engines.

Today classic Fords are extremely popular with enthusiasts and a great selection of classic Fords can be found for sale at www.ClassicDigest.com
