Since its restoration, this Thunderbird was in the care of a meticulous owner for over 14 years and it presents as if it was just freshly restored. The impeccable engine compartment displays the correct 390ci V8 with tastefully upgraded tri-power carburation. This M-code specification induction intake was reputedly performed by the dealer when the vehicle was new which only adds to the appeal. We are especially proud to offer this stunning 1962 Thunderbird Sports Roadster to the most astute collector, investor or enthusiast who appreciates rarity and spectacular condition.

    HISTORY OF THE THUNDERBIRD SPORTS ROADSTER
    Ford Motor Company introduced the third generation Thunderbird in 1961. The new sleek, aerodynamic design was influenced by the fighter jets of the era and gave the Thunderbird a ready-for-takeoff appearance that some found inspiring. President-elect John F. Kennedy used 50 examples of Ford’s new entry-level luxury model in his inaugural parade. The pinnacle of the third generation Thunderbird was the Sports Roadster package which was introduced in 1962 and only offered through the 1963 model year. The Sports Roadster was accented by special badging, a color matched passenger dash grab handle, and Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels with “knock off” style hubcaps. However, the primary difference was the removable tonneau cover that sealed off the back seat that didn’t limit the use of the power convertible top when in place. This striking addition transformed the four seat arrangement into a sporty two seater that was reminiscent of the first generation Thunderbirds that were introduced in 1955. Only 1,427 Sports Roadsters were built for 1962; they were desired by many yet purchased by few. Today they have become the most sought-after model of all third generation Thunderbirds.

    Financing

    Finance rates as low as 5.9%.


    We know that classic car financing can pose a unique challenge. Although a vintage or exotic car can be an excellent investment, some financial institutions attempt to apply standard “used car” rules for financing a classic car, which in many cases can make loan approval difficult.


    We work closely with many banking institutions that understand and recognize the collector value of classic cars and view them as an investment, which allows us to help you get the financing you need so that you can have the car you have dreamed of.


    Terms available up to 144 Months


    If you have any questions, feel free to contact us, (314)291-7000 or credit@schmitt.com
