Excellent Steady/ Slow Ride — The car has only a single braking system and however you make sure its ok you feel a bit unsafe. Ill have to get it converted to ( mainly) 2 systems . Spares are generally plentiful bearing in mind its a 50 year old car

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Excellent 50(s) style even  though its a 1963 car. not too large and when driven carefully, 50 MPH on motorways can return 27 MPG ( UK gallons about 18% larger than US)

Cons: from an era when underside rust wasnt really treated

Beautiful Car, Fun To Take Out And Show. — I like to take the car out for rides. It is great on the two lane country roads. I do not like to take the car when I am working as there are not enough good spots to leave the car. I have had the car on 100 plus mile trips...no worries or problems. Car is ready for a road trip. It is not a driver as much as it has been a show car. It has spent a good deal of time under the car cover.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: This is a great cruise night car. Fun for taking the kids out for ice cream. Fun to take to the car shows.

Cons: Old cars are not as quiet as modern cars. Steering is not as tight as a modern vehicle.

Wonderful Road Car — The Thunderbird was a great road car. The handling was very good considering it was built in 1963. The interior was very spacious and fit and finish was good. This was a very heavy car and took a lot of power to move, causing the 390 to suck gas and plenty of it. The engine parts were hard to get to and heavy to handle. The styling made this a timeless classic.

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Looks, ride comfort, weight, road manners

Cons: Weight, Fuel mileage, Hard to work on, parts expensive and hard to get
