On the day this Ford was born, a lot happened on the other side of the ocean: Martin Luther King told about his dreams, musical legends came up and American car companies had ‘the horsepower race’. It was in 1965, when the Thunderbirds with blue suits first appeared on TV, that Ford was already there with the fourth generation Thunderbird (this time also with blue suit); the Flair Bird. Overly exuberant lines of the fifties, were replaced by tighter long lines of the sixties. Ford came up with the idea to spell ‘Thunderbird’ in full over the bonnet, and that was successful. In the year that the Thunderbird came out, sales increased by more than 50%!
The bodywork of this Thunderbird and the colour come in like a thunderbird when the sky is clear, and the interior is like new. The car comes from a collector who wanted to take care of all his babies as best he could, so that no one is coming short. That’s why he restored the car nut and bolt, and he hasn’t driven the car much since. Looks like Elvis, but sounds and closes like a Swiss safe.
When you drive around in this car you feel like a sixties god. In those days it was fashionable to leave a ‘jet-like’ feeling in the interior in all kinds of ways. You can see that, the meters in the car drag you right back into the sixties. Grab those Raybans from the cupboard and come for a drive and let the V8 of this beautiful bird roar as it should. This Thunderbird has won many awards: are you ready to (re)live the American dream?I'm interested in this object
