ODOMETER
1966 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

315 bhp, 390 cu. in. OHV V-8 engine with single four-barrel Holley carburetor, three-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, independent front suspension with upper and lower A-arms and coil springs, live rear axle with semi-elliptical leaf springs, and hydraulically assisted front disc and rear drum brakes. Wheelbase: 113 in. Enthusiasts have given affectionate nicknames to each generation of the Ford Thunderbird. The 1961–1963 model, known as the “Bullet Bird,” was succeeded by the fourth-generation model. With completely revised exterior styling, including a lengthened hoodline and shortened, more formal roofline, and a more muscular yet flamboyant overall appearance, it was quickly dubbed the “Flair Bird,” a moniker that has stuck to the present day. Some of the innovations for the new Thunderbird were delayed, and they only reached production in 1965. Most notably, front disc brakes became standard for 1965, and the dramatic sequential rear turn signals were delayed in certain states. For 1966, the final year of the Flair Bird, styling was again dramatically revised and decidedly sportier, with the front end carrying a large Thunderbird emblem and a steeply raked egg-crate grille, while a large single taillight dominated the rear of the car. Thus, the 1966 Thunderbird is the most developed and best of its generation. It is also the most desirable today—especially the convertible, of which 5,048 were built, the last Thunderbird convertibles until 2002. The Vintage Burgundy car offered here is equipped with a period-correct “roadster tonneau,” which covers the rear seat and converts the model to a two-seater in the style of the 1962–1963 Sports Roadster T-Bird. It also has numerous other desirable features and options, including the six-way power reclining passenger seat, AM/FM radio with rear seat speaker and power antenna, chrome body side moldings, rear fender skirts, and brand new chrome wire wheels. The owner notes that it is a nice driver that has been recently detailed. An ideal summer cruiser for its new owner, this Thunderbird has great high style and muscular performance—in true Flair Bird tradition!
