Ford introduced the fourth generation of its Thunderbird personal luxury car in 1964 and produced it through 1966.  Despite only a three-year model run for this generation, Ford elected to make a number of changes for 1966 to keep the T-Bird competitive in the fast-growing personal luxury segment.  Highlights for 1966 included a new egg-crate style grille with a large Thunderbird emblem at its center and a single-blade front bumper.  Designers restyled the rear bumper with new full-width tail lamps that continued the cool-to-this-day sequential turn signals.  Under the hood, Ford upped the standard engine to a  390 cubic inch (6.4 Liter) V8 equipped with a single four-barrel carburetor producing 315 horsepower. While the unique Town Landau hardtop accounted for over half of all sales, the convertible continued to use the tuck-in-the-trunk design that made the top-down look of these cars so clean.  Sadly, many consider 1966 to be the last classic Thunderbird as it was the final year for unibody construction and the convertible model until 2003.

We absolutely love this Flair Bird and believe it will not disappoint when seen in person.  The Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels look fantastic on these cars.  While air conditioning was a popular option on coupes and Town Landaus, we’re not surprised to see this convertible not optioned with it.  Rudy personally inspected this 1964 Ford Thunderbird convertible currently located in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey and will provide his observations here shortly.
