1963 Thunderbird

VERY RARE

M-Code Sports Roadster

Show Car

“Thunderbird Sports Roadster production numbered 1,427 units in 1962, but just 455 in 1963, making them rare birds indeed. Even rarer were Thunderbirds ordered with the monstrous 390-cubic inch tri-power V-8, which was designated by an M in the VIN; thus resulting in the nickname of “M-Code” cars. These cars breathed through a set of three Holley two-barrel carburetors and put out some 340 horsepower at the crankshaft, which is to say they were plenty capable of shaming any Corvette-driving challengers.”

Ford turned out just 37 M-Code Sports Roadsters in 1963.


There are over 120 pictures of this car in the ad below, including detailed exterior, interior, engine, trunk and undercarriage. Scroll down after the description and let them load on your computer, it will take some time because of the size.

For sale by owner, a member of the Classic Thunderbird Club of Chicago, is this very rare 1963 Thunderbird. This is 1 of 37 1963 models produced with the rare ‘M’ code engine. It is a 390 cubic-inch V-8 engine generating 340 horsepower. It uses 3 2-barrel carbs and has a Cruise-o-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission. There really is not a lot to say about this one, it is one of three classic Thunderbirds for sale by the same owner.  Professionally restored (By Jewel Meetz) to be a show car and completed about 10 years ago, this car is incredible!  Please let all the pictures load (there are over 130) to see the high quality restoration of this classic Ford.  Since completion it has only been driven about 8,700 miles for the occasional Sunday drive and car shows.  Everything on this car is excellent and has either been redone, rebuilt or replaced. The engine is the original rebuilt 390 Tri-Power V-8 mated to the original 3-speed automatic transmission. Very nicely equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows and air conditioning. What follows are the details.
