Gateway Classic Cars Milwaukee is excited to present this 1966 Ford Thunderbird convertible. The first Thunderbird came off the assembly line in 1955. For the first time Ford was marketing a true luxury sportscar. Many body styles have been produced over the years including a two-seat convertible, four- seat hardtop/ convertible versions, five seat convertible /hardtop version and a six-passenger hardtop. With the introduction of the rear seat in 1958 Ford was able to expand the market of the Thunderbird as a personal sporty luxury car with high end features and over the top performance. The introduction of an all-power hydraulic convertible top beginning on the 1964 T-Bird was a marvel of the time. This fourth-generation 1966 Ford Thunderbird is painted in Cranberry red metallic with a black vinyl convertible top. Dual sport mirrors and factory wheel covers add to the overall good looks. The interior is upholstered in red vinyl. Bucket seats, center console and a full gauge dash scream luxury with a sporty flare. Under the hood is a 390 cubic inch V-8 attached to a three-speed automatic transmission. Updates include a Holley Sniper fuel injection system, solid state distributer, electronic ignition, replaced intake manifold, replaced torque convertor, replaced engine/ transmission gaskets replaced fuel tank, replaced radiator, brake lines, hoses, installed 100-amp alternator and much more. The convertible mechanisms have also been gone through for proper operation. Added features include tilt-away steering wheel. AM radio, power steering and power brakes.
