1965 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Vin: 5Y85Z170211 This 1965 Thunderbird says it all! Everything about this car is red hot from the body to the interior. About 6-8 Years ago in Oregon this car underwent a total restoration and has been driven delicately since then. The casting dates all match up with one another. This Thunderbird is a late \'65 year car with \'66 engine factory installed. Casting dates were in May and the car itself was built in June. Muscling this car is its original numbers matching 390ci 300hp V8 connected to a 3-Speed Ford Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission. The electronic abilities for this car are amazing now and it was even more amazing in 1965. Can\'t you just imagine packing up the family to go to the beach and not even having to get out of your car to drop that top down and feel the wind in your hair.
