Classifind Cut: 1964 Ford Thunderbird Convertible – Sold?
January 21st Update – we just noticed the listing “Classifind” expired, so with no replacement found we’re assuming this ride “Sold?” While this one got away, please reach out either by email or call Rudy directly if you’d like to be informed when we come across something similar.
1964 marked the introduction of Ford’s fourth-generation Thunderbird with styling that moved away from the prior generation’s jet-age theme to a more square-off, conservative appearance. Known as the “Flair Birds” in Thunderbird circles, these T-birds in convertible form are one of the cleanest top-down designs ever produced by a domestic manufacturer. Our latest Rangoon Red example originally listed in December 2020 on Craigslist in Raymond, New Hampshire (Manchester) comes with a fresh motor, convertible top, and Sports Roadster type tonneau cover for the asking price of $25,000. The Collector Car Market Review Online Tool reveals the ask is $500 less than this guide’s current #2 “Very Good” appraisal of $25,500.
Here’s the seller’s description:
“Stunning Ragoon Red retractable convertible with a new canvas top and tonneau cover to give the car a sleek 2-seat style. Brand new 390 automatic has 100 miles. New transmission, breaks, front end, very solid car. Way too many to list repairs/upgrades. Solid-body, no rust.”
