1964 Ford Thunderbird Coupe – Ford Thunderbird (colloquially called the T-Bird) is a nameplate that was used by Ford from model years 1955 to 1997 and 2002 to 2005 for a personal luxury car during which there were eleven distinct generations. Introduced as a two-seat convertible, the Thunderbird was produced in a variety of body configurations. These included a four-seat hardtop coupe, four-seat convertible, five-seat convertible and hardtop, four-door pillared hardtop sedan, six-passenger hardtop coupe, and five passenger pillared coupe, with the final generation designed again as a two-seat convertible. For 1964 the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off appearance, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. Hinting at its roots in the previous generation of Thunderbird that it evolved from, the new model retained a similar grille design with quad headlights and a 113.2 inches wheelbase. As before, the new Thunderbird continued to be offered in hardtop, convertible, and Landau versions. The 300hp 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE V8 continued as the standard engine for the Thunderbird. It was paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission.
It wasn’t that long ago completing a non-original restoration was really frowned upon. Today the majority of buyers are seeking a unique classic that offers the ride and modern conveniences of a newer vehicle. So while Ford produced several Thunderbirds in 1964, finding one 56 years later that can hold its own on the highway is a rare find. That driving experience is what the previous owner had in mind when he poured over $55k into a rotisserie restoration of his beloved T-Bird!
