1960 Ford Thun­der­bird con­vert­ible

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Lovers of the first-gen­er­a­tion Thun­der­bird were in for a shock with the ar­rival of its con­sid­er­ably larger suc­ces­sor. Pe­tite di­men­sions and just two seats were no longer the norm, with the new Thun­der­bird be­ing far more of a per­sonal lux­ury car that some be­lieve should have car­ried a Lin­coln badge. Sil­ver­stone’s 352 cu­bic inch-en­gined car is a fine ex­am­ple, hav­ing been re­painted in 2010 and re­cently en­joy­ing £5000 of me­chan­i­cal work in­clud­ing new steer­ing, sus­pen­sion and brakes, as well as ig­ni­tion parts.
