Rare Classic - 1966 Thunderbird Convertible w/ 428 cid Q Code Engine !
NO RESERVE !
The 1966 Ford Thunderbird was the last year that the fourth generation Thunderbirds were produced. In 1966, Ford also introduced the optional 428 cid engine with 345 hp and the ability to do zero to 60 in 9 seconds!
This 1966 Thunderbird is very rare and a good investment grade collector car. It is original, solid and virtually rust free and is only one of 700 convertibles produced with the Q code engine. Only 5,049 total convertible models were produced in 1966.
I am the second owner & this car had one repaint. The engine and transmission are original and the floor pans and upholstery are original as well. The original AM radio is still in the car. The dash and instruments are in excellent condition and the instrument panel is bright. Options are power windows, power steering, power brakes and power top. The speedometer says 21,726 (It is actually 121,724 miles).
The original paint color was: "Code Z - 1915 - Sauturne Gold"
The paint color now is: "Code M - 1619 - Wimbledon White"
We purchased this car in 1972 from a Long Island Ford Dealer and drove it as a daily driver until 1980, when we re-painted it, installed a new top and mounted new WW tires. The car was taken off the road in 2002 and has been garaged since then & the engine has not been started in 3-4 years. The car has a few issues: The trunk lid is stuck in open position (as seen in last photo), the rear transmission seal has a leak, the window switch contacts have to be cleaned and the battery is dead.
The paint and chrome are shiny and the black top and white wall tires are "like new".
The car is being sold AS IS, so check it out to make sure that you are getting what you are looking for !

The last 2014 Ford Shelby GT500 Convertible was sold on Saturday at a Barrett-Jackson auction in Reno, Nevada, for $500,000. Ford donated the Mustang to be auctioned for charity, and all of the money is going to the Brain Injury Association of America.
Tue, 02 Apr 2013 18:55:00 EST
Parnelli Jones, winner of the 1963 Indianapolis 500, was there on behalf of the BIAA with his son Page, who suffered a brain injury in a sprint car crash in 1994. The bidding increased quickly, reaching $500k in no time, spreading a bit more hope to people who live with brain injuries.
The winning bidder will be able to choose the GT500's exterior, interior and stripe colors, and is scheduled to receive the car, signed by Parnelli Jones in appreciation for the donation, by the end of 2013. Watch the video below to see the auction-block action.

Autoblog Podcast #327:
The horsepower wars are tightening among the Detroit Three, as the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet Camaro and Dodge Challenger are getting bigger, more powerful, and yes, more fuel efficient.
That came into sharper focus this week as more information was revealed about the most insane Challenger ever - the 707-horsepower Hellcat - followed quickly by Ford's in-depth showcase of the 2015 Mustang in Dearborn.
It's shaping up to be a golden age for enthusiasts, and what's under the hood is becoming more important than ever.
