1962 FORD THUNDERBIRD SPORTS ROADSTER all matching numbers with a realistic reserve. The best buy of a true classic on eBay.

The proof we have is the data plate, which indicates it is a sports roadster. Most 62s and all 63s have a VIN code of 89 and a body code of 76B on the data plate. Convertibles all have VIN codes of 85 and body codes of 76A on the data plate.

The exception to this is for early date coded 62 Sports Roadsters had the same VIN designation (85) as the standard convertibles. In November of 1961, there was a changeover to the better known 89 designation found in all subsequent Sports Roadsters. This car has a VIN#2Y89Z148215 and the data plate indicates that the car was manufactured on March 1, 1962 (01C)

This is an original, unrestored Florida car (now residing in South Carolina with a clear SC title). Mileage 52,651 is true based on the invoices showing 51,954 on the work done below. I believe the original Rangoon red paint is still in good condition. There is slight fading on an area below the windshield. Small dimple dent on driver’s door, nice chrome and trim with bright luster, all glass in good condition and like new black vinyl interior, new dash pad and red floor mats (front/rear) with T-Bird logo. Black vinyl top is like new and works flawlessly. Trunk has a new mat. Motor and transmission fires up strong and runs smoothly every day. Original shop manual and owner’s manual is included. Work done in 2007 include front end, brake work and exhaust. Oil change was completed in August 2017. I have documented paid receipts for all work done regarding the rebuilding of the engine and transmission between 12/2007 through 3/2008 in excess of my reserve. I also have other records for repairs and general maintenance. 

This car was placed in dry storage by the previous owner's wife since his death in 10/2008 until 2017 when I purchased it. I continued to get the car back to her glory by repairing the SelectAire Conditioner, replacing the dash pad with an original type dash, detailing the engine and installing new taillight "Qs".

Standard equipment include: 300 horse power, detailed 390, V8, 4bbl, Cruise-O-Matic transmission, power steering, power brakes, working clock, interior and trunk lighting, swing away steering wheel, center console glove box, windshield mounted rear view and side mirrors, 2 speed wipers, heater. The other added options include, working A/C converted to 134a (all components for AC are new), AM radio (working), power driver’s seat, front seat belts, and windshield washer.

Sport Roadster equipment: This Sport Roadster is equipped with five, chrome Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with spinner and black badges. The following items were unique to only the Sport Roadster: The original fiberglass Tonneau cover, with retaining clamp and footman's loop, and it has an original Ford part numbered latch, with 3 special Roadster badges and the original Roadster passenger emergency grab bar.
