1960 was the last model year for the “Square ‘bird,” the square-bodied, four-seat Ford Thunderbird. Though it shared sheet metal with its predecessor, the ’60 model featured triple taillamps.
The Pick of the Day is one of those 1960 Ford Thunderbird coupes, and appears to be a case of one person’s problem being another’s opportunity.
“I bought this eye-catching car about two years ago, registered it as an antique, and use it for my car club outings and occasional cruising,” says the private seller advertising the car on ClassicCars.com.
“Love the car but lost my garage space for it,” the seller adds in explaining why the car is for sale.
“The body, paint and interior are in great shape with no rust,” the seller notes, adding that the car’s 352cid V8 was rebuilt 500 miles ago, and that the rebuild included a new carburetor and fuel pump.
“Runs good,” the ad points out.
“The dash instruments, including the AM radio, are original and all work, with the exception of the electric clock.”
Photos that accompany the advertisement show an aftermarket “stereo” radio just beneath the dash as well.
The car has power steering and brakes, two-tone black-and-white leather seats and is “partially” restored.
The car is located in Dover, Delaware, and the asking price is what seems to be a very reasonable $17,000.
