Ford offered four vehicle lines in 1962 – small, medium, large and personal luxury.



This example is a replica of one of just 1,427 T-Bird Sports Roadsters made in 1962, which picked up the nickname, “Bullet Bird.”

Made at Ford’s Wixom, Michigan (VIN code Y) assembly plant and delivered to the sales region, when sold. The car’s previous owner restored this solid example to a very high standard. No rust. No collision history. Very rare body style pkg and very much in demand.

This T-Bird came with the following optional equipment – Nylon 8.00 x14 white sidewall tires, pushbutton AM radio, tinted glass, windshield washers, safety belts and outside mirror, plus leather bolster and inserts.

Refinished in Rangoon Red, this cars paint and trim are in overall very good original order with blemishes due to age and originality. The car has straight and solid bodywork and the chrome bumpers look great.

This Bullet Bird rolls on all-season whitewall tires, size 215/75R14 at all four corners. Each tire is mounted on a special, 48-spoke Kelsey-Hayes wire wheel. Horn is inop. The tires are in very good shape as are the wheels.

Under the hood is Ford’s 390 CID V-8.

Backing this motor is Ford’s Cruise-O-Matic MX three-speed automatic transmission (code 4) and a 3.00:1 rear end (code 1).
Driver convenience features include power steering and power brakes.

- The most striking addition to the Sports Roadster was a fiberglass tonneau cover which covered the back seat of the car and created a two-seater appearance. Inside, the car’s interior is overall satisfactory order.
-The red leather interior is very nice considering its age.

- The bucket seats and carpet are in decent order. The red-rimmed, three-spoke “Swing-Away” (see below) steering wheel is present and helps complete the car’s futuristic interior theme.
-The black and silver instrument panel is in very good order while the inner door panels are in decent shape. Completing the interior is a factory AM radio.

The Thunderbird introduced several firsts for the automotive market. The most distinctive feature of the 1961 to 1963 Thunderbirds was the highly touted “Swing Away” steering wheel. With the transmission in the park position, the steering wheel would slide approximately 18 inches to the right allowing the driver to exit the vehicle easily. Other innovations include a floating rearview mirror. Common on all autos produced today, this feature was first found on 1961 Thunderbirds. Depending on variable options, Thunderbirds could be purchased with options like air conditioning, power windows, power seats, AM radio, fender skirts and white wall tires. Several standard features, like power steering and power brakes, back up lights and bucket seats were costly options on most other autos.

Nineteen sixty-two saw strong production figures of 78,011 (including 9,884 convertibles) and the introduction of the Thunderbird Sports Roadster. Early models suffered from problems related to their specially-designed wire wheels. The problems were quickly corrected when Elvis Presley was involved in a minor accident in which one of the Kelsey-Hayes wheels collapsed during hard turning.



Ford fanatics, Thunderbird devotees and classic car collectors should take note of this special Thunderbird.
