We found this pretty 1963 Ford Thunderbird hardtop in December 2018 on Craigslist in Milltown, New Jersey where the private seller is asking $10,000. Based on the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool, the private seller has his T-Bird priced below the #3 “Good” level. The seller does not provide much of a description about the car but based on the exterior pictures provided, the Acapulco Blue exterior appears to be in very good condition.
The black interior features power steering, power brakes, power windows, factory air conditioning, and the cool Tilt-Away steering wheel. Based on the pictures provided, replacing driver’s door card and reupholster the driver’s seat combined with a detailed cleaning will be needed to show this example at a local Cars & Coffee.
While the engine could also use a detailed cleaning, the seller states the car comes with a new battery, brakes, fuel pump, and a recent tune-up. The shots of the undercarriage and trunk confirm this car is a very solid example.
Overall, this Thunderbird is a great way to get into the classic car hobby with a pretty car you can work on as you enjoy it. Good luck with the sale!
