Description
Lot #437 - You are viewing what many consider to the one of the most collectible Thunderbirds. It is a factory original Sports Roadster, 76B on the body tag, that is also a factory M series (fifth digit of the VIN) car with the high compression, Tri-Power equipped 390cid V8 making 340hp. Only 1,427 sports roadsters were built in 1962 and of those, a mere 120 had the 6-barrel Tri-Power set up from the factory. According to the Thunderbird Restoration Guide, only 41 of these are known of and this car is listed among those known. This Thunderbird is not only extremely rare, but it is an exceptionally nice example throughout. It has been repainted in proper Rangoon Red while it's black interior, trim, brightwork, etc. remain largely original and well maintained as the car has been sparingly driven and carefully kept by enthusiast owners. Beyond the aforementioned rarity, other notable features include factory air conditioning, power windows, perfectly working power softtop, Kelsey Hayes chrome wire wheels with brand new wide white wall tires, power steering with tilt-away column, power brakes, power driver seat and the chrome engine compartment dress-up package that was standard on M series cars. Whether you are a Ford enthusiast or are simply in the market for a fabulous vehicle, you'll find no disappointment here. **TITLE IN TRANSIT**
