1962 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop, Gorgeous Survivor, 89k Miles!!
This is a fabulous two prior owner California car that is a true survivor. It is still in its original livery with only a couple of very minor scratches. This is a truly fantastic original Thunderbird.
This Thunderbird was bought new on June 15, 1962 to Elizabeth Harrington who lived in Monterrey, Ca. She bought it at Cirimele Ford Sales in Oakland, Ca. She had it for a number of years and then sold it to its second owner in Southern California. This T-Bird was cherished all its life and was kept almost as new.
On December 2, 1988 she found her way to the present owner, Don Kratzer of Fallbrook, Ca. Mr. Kratzer has kept the T-Bird in continued excellent condition. Everything works well, including the power windows and air conditioning.
We love the light tan colors inside and out. The paint color is Code T (Sandshell Beige) and the interior is presented in Code 54 (Lt. Pearl Beige Vinyl). The interior material has a very slight pearl sheen to it, still original and in very nice condition. Only the drivers seat shows a modest amount of wear. The carpet is also original and in nice condition.
Perhaps most amazing is the engine compartment. Look closely at the photos. This is original, not repainted or detailed. All the chrome is also original and excellent.
Everything works as it should and as one would expect for a well loved Thunderbird. The air conditioning blows nice and cold, the transmission is nice and tight, the power windows work perfectly, the sliding steering wheel column slides out well and is excellent.
It is very rare to find such a pristine example and even rarer for it to be a rust free CA Black Plate T-Bird. For more information please email us at email@example.com or call us at 602.245.7200.
