1961 Ford Thunderbird

Gateway Classic Cars of Chicago is proud to present this 1961 Ford Thunderbird for sale! The '61 Thunderbird was part of Ford's third generation Thunderbird production. Optional in 1961 was the highly sought after swing-away steering wheel, which this T-bird has to allow easy exiting.

They say you never get a second chance to make a great first impression, and this '61 Bullet-bird's aesthetic has no need for introductions. This Thunderbird is a prime survivor. While appearing to have a repaint, it is the original Corinthian White (DL60-1238) and appears to have no obvious repairs, damage, or any rust bubbles. Inside, you're greeted to red vinyl bucket seats that are assumed to have the original covering. The rare “radio delete" plate also appears to be factory-installed.

Under the hood likes a 390 CID V-8 engine paired to a Cruise-O-Matic transmission in a compartment that is free from rust and extremely clean. The odometer reads just over 63,000 miles, and it may be correct. This T-bird has power steering, power brakes, power windows, Fresh Air heater, whitewall tires, full wheel covers, rear fender shields, and more.

With a full recent appraisal done 08/2019, this Thunderbird is ready for the road to be shown off. It appears to have little to no signs of aging or wear in any area, rust and damage free, and is in great condition. It is an incredible ride and is looking for its next owner!
