1962 THUNDERBIRD SPORTS ROADSTER

Only 1,427 Sports Roadsters were made during the 1962 model year and sold for approximately $1,000 more than the normal production 1962 convertible.  The Sports Roadster is distinguishable by its fiberglass tonneau cover, wire spoke Kelsey Hayes wheels, dash passenger grab bar, front fender emblems, chrome engine dress up kit, ROT “Build Sheet” attached to back of back seat, and a special serial number.

The first 465 Roadsters, which includes this car, were all Rangoon Red with Black Vinyl trim, and also had special 50-pound weights under the front bumper and in the trunk area to improve cornering on curves.

This car has been owned by the current owner for 40 years and went through a thorough restoration in the past 10 years, and has only been driven about 50 miles.  The car was shown and judged at a 2015 international thunderbird meet in Kelowna, British Columbia sponsored by the Vintage Thunderbird Club International.  It received a second place even though the car still lacked its complete restoration (tonneau cover not repainted and restored and trunk mat missing).  After completing its restoration, the car also received a best car in its class for open cars 1955 – 1965 in 2016 by the Montana Classic Auto Club.
