Q-code... in cars it means the ultimate sleeper, and so this 1966 Ford Thunderbird Landau Coupe might just be the ultimate Q-code with its original 428 V8 recently rebuilt. Then again, with it's slick black attitude and comfy A/C interior, this has so much more value than just a cool sleeper coupe.

Can one classic be both sophisticated and mean all in the same glance? After all, the special Landau roof is covered in premium black vinyl and it has a jewel-like ornamentation. But when it combines with the slick black paintwork, you get the impression of something a bit more menacing. And all that gloss in the paint is the perfect complement to the brightwork. In fact, the way the front bumper follows the contour of the angular nose, and the rear one surrounds the wide emblem taillights, this was the era when the Thunderbird really looked like Lincoln had made them. The final touch to unite the premium shine and performance attitudes is seen on the 15-inch American Racing wheels with staggered tire sizes for a little extra stance (lovers of originality will like the correct hubcaps and side skirts that also come with the sale.)

Personal luxury really meant something in 1966, as the tasteful bucket seat interior offers plenty of eye candy for both driver and passengers. The exterior black returns as an accent color to this bright white and wood themed luxury interior. A center console was standard equipment, and it includes controls for the power windows, AM/FM stereo, and air conditioning that's still blowing cold. The gauges have that 60s-cool setup that is so intricate that we know no factory would ever dare try in modern times. The ribbon-style speedometer sits on top, and four fashionable individual round pods finish the gauge package. With style a priority in these T-birds, the swing-away steering wheel was also standard.

This is the kind of engine bay you'll love showing off because of the attention to detail it received during its restoration. We love the way the big blue block and bold air topper look against the deep black paint. And all the shine from the valve covers, master cylinder, and much more really makes for a terrific total presentation. But more than just look nice, this was built to be driven. The few people who upgraded to the Q-code 428 like this one were those who wanted serious power, and now this one takes that spirit and kicks it up a notch. The original big block V8 was rebuilt and includes bored .030 over kit, crank re-machined, all new bearings, and a new camshaft. It's also now topped with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor to let this monster motor inhale deeper. But the exhaust note only has the T-bird's standard sophisticated tone, so it's a true sleeper. In fact, when you look at the undercarriage photos, the red oxide will make you think this is a survivor. But the new sway bar, ball joints, tie rod ends, and bushings let you know this is one has been cared for to feel solid on the road. Plus, with C6 three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, it's also a great all-around cruiser.

So is this one more of a sleeper or a slick street rod? Well, you'll have plenty of time to decide that as you drive around in total A/C comfort. But you can only do so if you're fast enough to grab this deal. Call now!
