Up for sale is a 1963 Ford, Thunderbird Convertible with a very magical presence! This bird is an extraordinary
site to behold and one Elvis Presley or Robert Conrad would be proud to drive. The car has a near flawless
Corinthian White, paint job, rare and desirable Art Querfeld designed,pearl-beige real leather interior in
excellent condition, showing very little wear, a clean white convertible top, Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, the 2 seat
tonneau cover and the swing-away steering wheel that eases entry / exit for the driver. This triple white T-Bird is
very comfortable, reliable, mechanically and cosmetically in near perfect condition. I am a firm believer in
knowing what your are buying, so if you are interested in the deep discription read on.
To make it clear this Thunderbird is not one of the 455 Sport Roadsters produced in 1963, it is however a
convertible that was a cloned to look like a Sports Roadster. The car is all numbers matching Z Code 390 V8
convertible,producing 300 HP, garaged kept, no rust. It is exceptionally nice condition, always loved, pampered,
adult owned, well serviced, non-smoker, no major accidents and High-Octane gas always used. The old adage, it's so
clean you can eat off it, applies to just about every surface of car.
Here are the codes on the door tag : Body 76A, Color M, Trim 54, Date Code 14J, DSO 51, Axle 1, Trans 4. The only
deviation from the door tag is that it now has real leather than vinyl. I just posted the details about this car
in the Thunderbird Registry. This was the cars first time being registered with no previous details available, it
may take a few days to show up into the system. I believe I am the third owner of the car and it spent most of its
existence in a small town in Oklahoma.
This Thunderbird is a real pleasure to drive. The car feels safe at speeds over 80 mph and can be driven briskly
in modern traffic with confidence. The braking performance on this car is outstanding and it has that perfect petal
feel. When emergence braking is require at high speeds the results are very predictable, down nose pitch attitude
with complete control until lock up. In lock up, the car travels straight as an arrow and can be easly maneuvered
when the brakes are released. The power steering is very precise with one finger touch on the wheel. This T-Bird
may be one of the best driving Birds around.

As the smallest team in the sport, it wasn't really a surprise when Dodge decided to pull out of NASCAR, but Autoweek is reporting that Ford is looking to pull the plug on its professional-level NHRA sponsorships following the 2014 season. With attendance and television ratings down, the article reports that Ford is just backing out of the top series but will remain active in the Sportsman classes of racing, which are geared more toward the grassroots and semi-professional racers.
This means that one of drag racing's biggest names, John Force, will be left looking for new sponsorship after next season. Force, 64, has been with Ford for 17 years, winning 15 championships in that time and winning almost half of all Funny Car events in his Mustang since he started working with Ford in 1997, but after 2014, there could be some big shakeups at John Force Racing.
According to the report, Force would consider is moving over to the Top Fuel dragster series, although he could also move to another manufacturer to remain in the Funny Car series. With Ford on the way out, this leaves just Toyota and Dodge as the remaining active automakers in the highest levels of drag racing.
Here's the thing about China: The folks buying cars there have a very different set of standards than shoppers in many other markets around the globe. While we all drool over hot metal with bold designs, and while we appreciate automakers going an extra step to inject even their cheapest offerings with aggressive and interesting cues, that sort of sheetmetal sex appeal doesn't always sell in the People's Republic. Case in point is Jaguar, which may be designing a more traditional-looking version of its XJ for the Chinese market, or more to the point of this story, Ford currently sells the less-exciting, last-generation Focus compact in China right alongside the new one.
So consider this new Shanghai-bound C-segment concept a preview of what's to come for that more traditional, budget-minded, less-sexy market. More proof of this pudding: Ford's even calling this concept the Escort - a nod to the Blue Oval's compact car days of yore, and a name that stirs up thoughts of basic, affordable transportation rather than great driving dynamics or bold design. "Customers in China described seeking a vehicle that is stylish - but not one that is arrogant or pretentious," Ford states. And this new Escort concept previews a possibility of providing exactly that for this rapidly expanding automotive market.
What you're looking at, then, is one of the most simple Ford designs we've seen of late, though it still incorporates all of the automaker's latest DNA. The signature hexagonal grille is front and center, flanked by attractive LED headlamps and chrome-rimmed foglamp housings. The entire car's design focuses on clean, smooth surfaces, with one strong character line flowing from front to back just below the beltline. We will say that the car looks decidedly more premium from the rear view, where narrow, horizontal taillamps with an LED accent give the car added visual width. Bland as it may be, it's a handsome little concept, though fear what would likely happen if all of the conceptual details get dumbed down for a production model.
Last August, Ford made a few waves by claiming that the Ford Focus was, at that point, the top-selling car in the world. The automaker failed to account for variations of the Toyota Corolla wearing a different name (such as the Auris and Matrix), however. With official data from Polk coming in now, Ford is able to say that the Focus was, in fact, the best-selling nameplate in the world last year.
Using new-car registrations (which doesn't factor in fleet sales), the Polk data shows that a total of more than one million Focus models around the world. Strong sales in the US and China have led to a 16 percent increase in year-over-year Focus sales from 2011 that helped to create even more of a gap between it and the second-best global seller, the Corolla.
Ford also had the Fiesta and F-Series listed in the top 10 for worldwide nameplates, but what's even more impressive is the fact that the F-Series is only sold in North America. Scroll down to see the list (compiled by Ford using Polk data) of the top global sellers last year and a press release from Ford.
