Here is what has been said about this beautiful driver...
The 1961-63 Thunderbird is considered by many to be the most beautiful Thunderbird ever built, largely due to aerospace influences on the Alex Tremulis design. While sales were strong through the late 1950s and early 1960s, purists besieged Ford with demands for the return of a two-place Thunderbird. Division Chief Lee Iacocca tapped designer Bud Kaufman to develop a solution. Kaufman returned with the stunning Sports Roadster, which built upon Thunderbird's sweeping lines with a unique fiberglass tonneau cover extending from the trunk to behind the front seats, effectively transforming the four-passenger Thunderbird to a two-seater. The Sports Roadster package included a passenger grab bar, unique side badges, and stunning 48-spoke Kelsey Hayes wire wheels. The car offered here is one of only 455 built in 1963. As delivered, this Thunderbird was opulently appointed with Rangoon Red paint, a luxurious Red leather interior, engine dress-up package, air-conditioning, power windows, power seats, seat belts, tinted glass, heavy duty battery, windshield washers. The MSRP for this top-of-the-line Thunderbird was over $6,500, a staggering figure in 1963.
