IT COMBINED QUALITY, STYLE, PERFORMANCE AND A FABULOUS RIDE WITH THE APPOINTMENTS OF THE FINEST LUXURY CARS.

THE 1964 THUNDERBIRD

1964 Ford Thunderbird: So Different...So Beautifully Different!

From all appearances, the 1964 Thunderbird was all new. But the drive train was essentially the same as 1963, and truthfully, there really wasn't much need to change anything. The Thunderbird 390 Special V-8 combined with Ford's Cruise-O-Matic transmission were rock solid and dependable. With 300 horsepower under the hood, the T-bird was swift in flight. The 390 moved the T-Bird with authority and was quick enough to make people take notice, should the driver desire to do so.

By 1964, the personal luxury car market segment would be getting increasingly competitive in the years to come, but for 1964, it was still the Thunderbird's show all the way! That's because it had what everybody wanted: good performance, luxury, all the latest gadgets, and strikingly beautiful interiors and exterior styling that quickened the pulse. And really, looks were what counted in this market, and for 1964 the Thunderbird had them.

New standard features were evident everywhere you looked. Fender-top mounted turn indicators put an end to driving for miles with your turn signal on. Vent windows now had handles to roll them open and closed, which eliminated the small handles that messed up carefully manicured nails, and also helped to hold them in place at high speeds and when doors were slammed. A new Silent-Flo Ventilation System pulled tons of air out of the car, and it did so with all the windows up, and in complete silence. Coved rear seats with a center fold-down arm rest gave rear seat passengers a cozy, cocktail bar atmosphere, and created additional leg room by encouraging them to sit facing toward the center of the car.

New Contoured Thin-Shell Front Seats were slimmer and more form-fitting than previous Thunderbird seats. The thinner design allowed for more rear foot room, and the contoured design was more comfortable, and tended to hold the occupant in place better on sharp turns.

A "Fasten Seat Belts" reminder light was mounted on the console, and new right and left cowl air vent controls were mounted so that either the driver or front passenger could adjust them. Gauges provided information on oil pressure, fuel level, engine temperature, and charging system performance. The 1964 Thunderbird introduced the linear speedometer, which changed from a white bar to an orange bar with increasing speed.

The seats and trim panels were upholstered in a new super soft expanded vinyl, with a pleated pattern. They looked so much like leather it was difficult to tell the difference. Door and rear quarter armrests were softer than in 1963, and bright chrome and aluminum accents were everywhere you looked. The interior of the 1964 Thunderbird was truly space age at the time.

Perhaps one of the most dramatic aspects of the 1964 Thunderbird is the lighting of the instrument panel and its controls at night. It's truly beautiful. Controls and gauges are positioned so they're easy for both driver and front passenger to operate, and lighted for clarity during darkness.

New options introduced in 1964 include Automatic Speed Control, with controls mounted on the driver's side of the console that maintained a set speed without pressure being applied to the gas pedal. This was supposed to be ready to go a year earlier, but never made it to production, despite being listed as an option in the 1963 sales catalog. A Reclining Passenger Seat was just the thing for long trips, and featured an integral headrest built-in to the upper seat back that could be raised to support the head when reclined. A Safety-Convenience Control Panel included the Vacuum Door Locks introduced as an option in 1963, and added lights that flashed when a door was ajar, fuel was low, or when the emergency flasher had been activated.

The 1964 Thunderbirds sold very well. Once again, the Thunderbird was it if you wanted to impress and amaze your circle of friends. There's no question about it, the 1964 Thunderbirds rank high on most collector's lists of favorite Thunderbirds. They offered the right look, the right features, and the most new gadgets, and even though they had a completely new look to them, they were all unmistakably Thunderbirds. And that's about as close to sheer exhilaration as a person can possibly get.

Vehicle Condition:

THIS 1964 THUNDERBIRD IS IN AMAZING MECHANICAL AND SPECTACULAR COSMETIC CONDITION! THE CHROME, BRIGHT WORK, WHEELS, TIRES, UPHOLSTERY, DOOR PANELS, CARPET, HEADLINER, AND MECHANICALS ARE ALL EXCELLENT except as noted below!

This 1964 Thunderbird is 55 years old, and even with only 33,273 miles some signs of use are to be expected!This T-Bird is an amazing "survivor”, and is absolutely stunning! Everything appears to be in excellent condition. There are just a few things worthy of mention.The heater core has been bypassed so it does not blow heat. The three power windows other than the driver's window do not work. No attempt has been made to determine the reason. There is a small cigarette burn on the rear seat that has been touched up so it barely shows. The interior bright work shows some slight age. The driver's side front bumper has a scrape and slight indentation down at the lower corner, the passenger side has a slight scrape down at the lower corner. The paint is absolutely stunning! This T-Bird is nice enough to show and should win trophies!

The odometer reading listed above IS the total original mileage!

THIS THUNDERBIRD IS AN UNBELIEVEABLE SURVIVOR READY TO SHOW, DRIVE AND ENJOY.
