1961 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop - 390 V8

For sale a space aged designed '61 Thunderbird in unrestored condition running the 390BB V8. For inspection in Cleveland, QLD.

The 1961 Ford Thunderbird was the first of the third generation of T-birds, affectionately known as the "Bullet Birds". The styling was designed around the US's space-obsessed rocket ship era with distinctive grillework to the bullet-like profile and afterburner taillights, the T'Bird was a truly flamboyant design. Aero-streamlining and even Deco styling cues from the '30s and '40s combined with Jet Age influence from the '50s. The extraordinary result is a car that looks as good today as it did for its debut over 60 years ago.

The interior is equally smooth, with a curved dash. The sumptuous bucket seats give a luxurious feel when combined with the wrap-around steel instrument panel and console. The striated steel trim continues the full length of the doors into the back seat. The overall effect is impressive. From the exterior and interior, the design excellence jumps out at you.

The only available engine was Ford's big block 6.4-litre, 390-ci V8 rated at 300 horsepower and while not a race car, this four-seater luxury coupe is no slouch and can be cruised at high-speed on the freeways effortlessly for hours on end.

A total of 72,851 Thunderbirds were sold, 10,516 of which were convertibles.
