The third generation Thunderbird was introduced in 1961 and had a short run of only a few years. It was also the Pace Car for the Indianapolis 500. The T-bird had strong sales numbers and was a market leader in luxury, performance and automotive firsts like the swing away steering wheel that allowed for easy entry and exit. It could be purchased with A/C, power windows, seats, AM radio and fender skirts . A total of over 200,000 Thunderbirds were produced in three years.
This particular beauty comes out of long term loving ownership and excellent care. This T-bird still shows a lot of originality with a re-paint some years back. The interior is original with the exception of a carpet kit. This car is in excellent mechanical condition, with the turn of the key the engine starts right up and idles quietly. It goes down the road as it should with all lights in working order. The car comes with receipts of maintenance and care dating back over twenty years. In our opinion, the third generation T-bird especially the 1961 model is one of the most striking of the “big” birds.
