AutoHunter Spotlight: 1962 Ford Thunderbird convertible with rebuilt engine

Blue ‘Bullet Bird’ convertible shows just 32,000 miles


Today’s AutoHunter Spotlight is on a 1962 Ford Thunderbird convertible with only 32,000 miles driven.

Nicknamed the “Bullet Bird” because of the convertible’s projectile-like styling, these 4-seaters include unique details like the side-trim door handles, recessed headlamps, round taillights and blade-like tail fins.

The body is finished in Acapulco Blue Metallic and features a powered white convertible top, chrome bumpers and rear fender skirts.

Matching the exterior, the all-blue interior has vinyl front bucket seats and a rear bench, locking center console, swing-away steering wheel, and chrome trim.

Power comes from the original 390cid V8 engine that was rebuilt in 2019. It’s mated to a 3-speed “Cruise-O-Matic” automatic transmission.

  1. The older T-Birds are such cool cars. My grandmother would get a new one every other year and I loved sitting in them (too young to drive then) wishing it was mine. I finally got my own in 190076, brand new.
