In 1961, Ford introduced a third generation Thunderbird with a
completely new design reflective of the developing space age. The
“Bullet Bird”, to which it was commonly referred, has a very elegant
design ending with taillight housings which were to remind the
viewer of turbines or rocket engines. This was a 4-seater
luxury/sports car which was powered by a 390 cubic inch, 300
horsepower V-8 engine coupled to a 3-speed “Cruise-O-Matic”
transmission. With a power top which neatly disappeared into the
trunk with a power lid, the car also was offered with power
windows, “Swing-Away” steering wheel, to facilitate ease of entry
and exit, factory air conditioning and tinted glass as options.
Available in hardtop or convertible form, the 1962 T’Birds also
introduced the “Sports Roadster” model. This transformed the look
of the car from a 4-seater to a 2-seater sports car with a long,
sweeping rear deck using a beautifully-designed fiberglass tonnean
cover which cover the rear area and gave the car a fabulous look.
Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels were standard on this car and
added to the sporty look. The “Sports Roadster” package was
expensive and just 1,427 of these cars were built. Although there
are many clones and cars ordered with similar options, our car is a
true factory Sports Roadster and was ordered were all of the options
mentioned above. It has undergone a total restoration and is
absolute gorgeous in original Rangoon red with red interior and
white top. The car is accompanied by original manuals, documents
and related material
