1965 Ford Thunderbird

I purchased this 1965 Thunderbird about six years ago from a person that lived in California and was leaving the country. It is all stock. I have done a few repairs. For example, I converted the radio from AM to AM/FM and replaced the power window motors. I enjoy driving this great car and affectionately call her “Trixie”.

    Had a real low milage one a few years ago, problems kept popping up, mostly from sitting around so long. Sold it to a guy in Tucson that knew the car inside out and backwards, hope he did well with it!!

    My buddy had one. During the gas crisis of the 70s he went to the front of the line. This caused many fights until his father, the owner of the Gulf Station in Freeport, NY started carrying a baseball bat to "explain". The T- Bird with a 390 got 7 miles to the gallon. My 67 Cougar XR7 got a robust 15 mpg on premium.
