The best big cruising convertibles need serious big block power. That's why this 1960 Ford Thunderbird is so appealing. With a rare J-code 430ci V8, this is the iconic square bird droptop that knows how to hustle. And when you see the correct condition this one carries over every inch, you know you've found the perfect vintage luxury convertible.

1960 was the crossroads of many different styles, and this one blends them all perfectly. You see the jet age in the profile with the rocket-inspired sheetmetal and tailfins. Those bright beautiful bumpers, and how well they integrate into the design, reminds us that style was king before government regulations stepped-in. Plus, the Detroit maxim of "lower, wider, longer" is exactly what created these boulevard-cruising second-generation T-birds. As Ford's personal luxury machine, this is a very sophisticated package. The factory-correct Corinthian White has a great gloss, and it provides the perfect contrast to the black convertible top. The total effect is almost like a tuxedo with a white dinner jacket... and the wire wheels provide the jewelry.

While we like the black and white contrast with the roof up, the open top personality is even more sophisticated. The red leather interior is correct for the car, and it looks fantastic. Beautifully finished power-adjusting buckets, center console, and gorgeous cockpit-style dash – the whole convertible has a stylish Lincoln-level of execution. The white-faced instruments are fitted into a shiny aluminum panel that looks like a high-end clock face. Power windows with switches on the center console are a nice feature on any premium car. Plus, the power folding top means you never have to leave the driver's set to go from enclosed luxury to a wind-in-your-hair experience. In fact, just to make sure this Thunderbird is a true anytime cruiser, you get to listen to your favorite music on the AM/FM/CD/XM stereo.

Under the hood is the best upgrade of them all. Only the finest T-birds received the upgrade to the 430 cubic-inch V8. This is originally a J-code car, and so we love seeing the big block filling the engine bay. You can tell there was plenty invested there because it carries the correct shining valve covers and matching air topper against the dark presentation of the big V8. Plus, the condition of the painted walls, tidy wires & hoses, and correct components are sure signs that accuracy, not a budget, dictated the work performed on this motor. Best of all, the block shows all signs of being date-correct, so there is a lot of originality to go with your rarity and power. But don't just listen to the power of this motor, follow the dual exhaust's path in the undercarriage photos. There you'll confirm what you already suspected – there has been a solid investment to keep this a great cruiser. Plus, with a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and front disc brakes, this T-bird is easy to drive near or far.

This is your opportunity to pick up a beautiful, rare, and powerful classic that is the perfect luxury cruiser. Don't miss out, call today!!!
