1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

In the mid-60s, the Ford Thunderbird underwent significant changes with its newly redesigned model. Embracing a more squared-off “formal” appearance, it earned monikers like the “Flair-Bird” or the “Jet-Bird”. Despite these changes, the Thunderbird maintained its sporty image, especially with Ford’s decision to equip it with the standard 390 CI V-8 engine. Featuring a four-barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, this engine boasted up to 305 horsepower, accelerating the full-sized T-bird to 60 mph in just 11 seconds, with a top speed of approximately 120 mph. This T-bird effortlessly glides on the asphalt and comfortably handles modern highway speeds.

This exceptional example is adorned in striking Raven Black, complemented by a deluxe black leather interior and black top. A rare find, this 2-owner, all-original T-bird has been meticulously maintained. Notable options include:

  • Cruise-O-Matic Automatic Transmission
  • Master Guide Power Steering
  • Swift Sure Power Disc Brakes
  • Fully Disappearing Soft Top
  • Turn-key Condition
  • Factory Select Aire Conditioning (ice cold)
  • Extremely Rare Kelsey Hayes Wire Wheels
  • Padded Dash
  • Vent Windows
  • Backup Lights
  • Sequential Blinking Rear Turn Signal Lights
  • Quad Headlamps
  • Chrome Dual Side View Mirrors with Remote
  • Day/Night Rear View Mirror
  • Leather Bucket Seats
  • Reclining Passenger Seat
  • Seat Belts
  • 390 CI V-8 Engine
  • Front and Rear Speakers
  • Swing-A-Way Steering Wheel
  • Clock
  • Full Instrumentation
  • Dual Exhaust System (virtually new)
  • T-bird Crested Floor Mats
  • Magic Air Heater/Defroster
  • I-Rest Tinted Safety Glass
  • Owner’s Manual
  • Manufacturer Statement of Origin

Measuring an overall length of 205 inches and weighing 4693 pounds, this Thunderbird captures the public’s fascination with the space race through its jet-inspired instrument panel. Its racy bucket seats add a hint of sports car panache, making it one of the most successful personal luxury cars of its era. With distinctive styling and impressive performance, the fourth-generation Thunderbird stands as a luxurious and iconic automobile that belongs in any collection.
