OFFERED WITHOUT RESERVE

The Thunderbird was created as a 'personal luxury' car and even to the final production version, had never been designed as a sports car. Debuted to the public at the 1954 Detroit Auto Show (though still in concept form) Ford's answer to the Corvette proved to be a popular choice that outsold the competition immediately. Many changes and upgrades over the next decade led to a package that was unmatched in the marketplace. This factory Candyapple Red 1966 Thunderbird is the one that collectors avidly seek. This roadster has several important options including the highly sought after Select Aire climate control and the rear hard tonneau Sport Roadster package. Other significant options and features that are documented on the original window sticker include tinted glass, power windows with power wing vent glass, Stereosonic AM radio with tape deck, power antenna, reclining seats with headrests, power driver's seat, fender skirts, as well as Continental kit and trunk mounted luggage rack. Spotlights adorn both sides of the car and Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels dress up the exterior beautifully. Under the hood, the chrome engine dress-up kit outfits the engine bay. The car is equipped with many great functional features, also including power steering and brakes. As many informed collectors are aware, there is perhaps no better, more attractive and useable sports luxury car from the period. With its aggressive Thunderbird Special 390-cid V-8 powerplant, handsome red finish and Sport Roadster option, this offering is the perfect road car for the driving enthusiast.
