Description

Lot #311.1 - 1964 marked the first year of Ford's famous "Jet Bird" styling for the T-Bird. Some think these Birds, with their sleek lines, minimalist styling, comfortable interiors, and powerful 390cid V8s, are the best classic Thunderbirds to own. This car is a pampered example that is very original in all respects. Original paint, the drivetrain is correct and original, and the interior is quite original. Just over a year ago it had a complete mechanical tune-up including new tires, carburetor kit, spark plugs, new radiator, head gaskets, rebuilt cylinder heads, thermostat, belts, water pump, fuel pump, new batter, new exhaust from the manifold back, transmission overhaul, window gears and switches. Even the odometer reads less then 45,350 original miles. This car runs and drives very well and is a joy out on the highway with smooth, effortless power and a great ride; and the clock works too. Interior is all original, everything works. The leather is pristine as well as head liner and all chrome. Comes with original Owners Manual, fender flares, original rims as well as the wire spoke rims in the pictures. The 390cid V8 is extremely well presented with correct stickers and trim and a top level of attention paid to cleanliness and detail. This is one of the finest examples of Ford's famed "Jet Bird" styled T-birds, and a true '60's icon.
