Hello fellow Thunderbirder!

Since you are reading this you must be like me and share an interest in Ford’s most iconic model, the Thunderbird! You may like the classic version from ’55 or bought a ’66 Flairbird brand new. Perhaps you grew up with an ’83 Aerobird in the garage or are enjoying the classic lines and late model comfort with a 2005 Retrobird. Personally, I am a “bookend” Thunderbirder with ’57 and ’03 Thunderbirds. It doesn’t matter what year you like (or even if you own one!) you are part of the Thunderbird family and are welcome here.

The ITC has partnered with VTCI and CTCI to promote the Ford Thunderbird at the Classic Auto Show in Los Angeles to be held January 27-29, 2017. Among the many Thunderbirds that members of these three clubs will show there will be other great cars and exhibits including several vehicles recently added to the National Historic Vehicle Register.

Use the link to learn more about this show and then plan on being there to mingle with other Thunderbird and classic car owners, restorers and suppliers. When you use this link to purchase your tickets, $1 will be given back to the ITC!

My Grandparent's '66 Landau
$3,000 - Lena, IL (61048)

It hasn't been touched in about 25 years so currently a as is sale. There is some front end damage but he has spare parts to redo completely. It has been in a shed but on a dirt floor so not sure on condition in that regard. Keep in mind helping my grandparent's here so price is what they are expecting to get out of it. I have verified price with some other Thunderbird guys and they said it was more than fair, purely as a parts car. I will post a video in comments (ignore all price talk and other stuff shown as it was part of the rest of their collection). Just under 89K in miles and has clean Title. I am hoping to sell entirely as is without having to part it out

International Thunderbird Club (ITC) and the other two major Thunderbird clubs have agreed to set aside Sunday, May 21st, 2017 as “THUNDERBIRD APPRECIATION DAY”. EVERY Thunderbird owner is asked to bring their Thunderbird out so that everyone can enjoy these “Unique in all the world” cars!
This does not need to be planned as a car show or be a big event. Just imagine how your Thunderbird would have been used when it was brand new and do that. Some ideas to get your Thunderbird into the public are:

• Coffee or donut shops
• Grocery stores
• 50’s or Retro diners
• Ice cream parlors
• Drive-in movie theatres
• Ford Dealerships
• Museums
• Picnic in a park
• Amusement park
• Zoo
• Race track
• National or State parks
• Monuments
• Local scenic sites
• Smaller airports (ones with old airplanes or a place to view the takeoffs and landings are great)
The idea is to give the folks that wouldn’t usually go to a car show an opportunity to see your Thunderbird up close and talk to you about it and ask questions or tell stories about past Thunderbird memories and, of course, get a picture of your really cool car!
Who knows, you may be the person that gets someone else interested in owning a Thunderbird! And remember to get pictures and stories about what you did on this Facebook page! Please hit "SHARE" to pass the word.

For Sale. 79 Town Landau. Approx 117K miles. I have owned it almost 20 years. I bought it when the original owners traded it in to the Ford dealer I used to work at. Message me if interested. Want to see it go to a good home. Want to concentrate on other avenues since my divorce.

Many Tbirders have received parts from Bird Nest in West Linn, OR. The original Bird Nest was started in the 9th and Morrison block in downtown Portland in the 70's. Matt Truax and company have been using the old warehouse for storage of over 200 parted out Tbirds since the 70's. The last few weeks they have been sitting and tossing parts because the owner of the building had sold out to developers. A few members of the Northwest Vintage Thunderbird Club have been helping them in this huge effort. These are some of the pictures I took a couple of weekends ago. ... See MoreSee Less

Selling my 62, 29k miles. I pulled from a garage. Older couple owned it, passed away. It's very very clean. 390/automatic. Power windows and brakes and seats. Everything but the radio works. Like to get 12k out of it. Original car, tons of paperwork. Hard to find like this anymore. One picture shows the paint before I buffed it. Interior is very nice minus the dash crack like most of them have. Columbus Ohio. Thanks! ... See MoreSee Less

Fordomatic (air cooled) transmission
$400 - Seaside, CA (93955)

I just purchased a Y-block 312 that came out of a (56?) Mercury Montclair, and it came with this Fordomatic. I have no need for the tranny, so here it is! I know virtually nothing about the transmission, and I'm going off what the previous owner told me (who was NOT the Merc's owner). He never had the combo installed, so buyer beware/be aware.

Asking $400, but price is negotiable

Local pick up is preferred (Monterey, CA), but I could probably get my paws on a pallet. Shipping costs would apply, of course.

I'll be posting in multiple places, just for FYI.

Any questions, please feel free to message me.
