Lot 122: Ford Thunderbird Convertible

The Charlie Thomas Collection 2012, RM Auctions (20 October 2012)

225 hp, 312 cu. in. overhead valve V-8 engine with Holley four-barrel carburetor, three-speed manual transmission, independent wishbone front suspension, and four-wheel power drum brakes. Wheelbase: 102 in. The Thunderbird offered here was comprehensively restored and finished in Thunderbird Grey, which, perhaps, best reflects the elegant body design. The interior was restored in keeping with the original Code XB red and white scheme and is in near perfect condition. This is a two-top car with the black hardtop and matching Haartz soft top. Under the hood is a very well detailed 312 V-8 with all the chrome components one would hope to find. Other features include power brakes, power windows, a power seat, a Town and Country radio, an automatic transmission, and four wide whitewall tires mounted on Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels. The paint finish is excellent, with a few tiny chips to be found, and all chrome and brightwork is of similar quality.
