We are pleased to offer this 1961 Ford Thunderbird Hardtop Coupe for consideration. 1961 was the first year of the third generation Thuderbirds which brought about a much sleeker styling. The 1961 Ford Thunderbird was very successful and was the Indianapolis 500 Pace Car and the car for JFK's inauguration. Several standard features were highly touted on the 1961 Thunderbirds. The “swing away” steering wheel is easily moved towards the middle of the vehicle (when in park) for easy entrance and exit. Another innovation was the floating rear view mirror which first appeared here, but is now common on almost all vehicles today. Other standard features like power steering, power brakes, reverse lights, and bucket seats were costly upgrades on other vehicles at the time.

This 3rd owner T-bird has always been well stored and maintained. The original 390 6.4L V8 engine has low miles and is well taken care of (we do hold receipts on the maintenance). This vehicle also comes with real Kelsey Hayes wheels for that perfect wire wheel Thunderbird look. This car is an American Classic perfect for summer driving. Please call or email for more details today!

This vehicle is located at our Grand Rapids facility.
