Wimbeldon White (Cream) 1965 Ford Thunderbird 390 CID V8 3 Speed Automatic Avai
Wimbeldon White (Cream)
The 60’s was an era of excess that’s for sure! You don’t get a puny powerplant either; the 390 CID V8 engine that the seller claims is “numbers matching” (unverified by Gateway Classic Cars) was also rebuilt around 1,500 miles ago. The 390 motor was rated at 300hp and 427lb ft of torque for 1965 according to online literature.
This vehicle falls into the fourth generation of Ford’s “personal luxury” cars that was produced from 1964-1966. There were a couple changes for ’65 from ’64 models including the ‘Thunderbird’ script on the hood being replaced by an emblem, addition of sequential turn signals and standard front disc brakes. The T-Bird in 1965 started competing with Ford’s blockbuster hit Mustang, which did affect sales numbers slightly but by no means meant this car was any less desirable.
The mid-’60s Thunderbirds are really starting to get noticed by both collectors and enthusiasts alike. [ omitted ]. [ omitted ].
