Vehicle Story

OVERVIEW

This magazine-featured 1960 Ford Thunderbird is reportedly one of 10 performance-built sports coupes from its model year that were customized with NASCAR Grand National specification equipment. It was restored by Don Miller of Penske Racing and is powered by a 390ci V8 paired with a three-speed manual transmission. Finished in burgundy with white striping over a two-tone black and white vinyl interior, this second-generation Thunderbird is now offered with a binder of documentation, a build sheet, an owner’s manual, and a clear Ohio title in the seller’s name.

EXTERIOR – FEATURES

This 1960 Thunderbird two-door sports coupe was repainted burgundy with white striping while undergoing restoration under the direction of Don Miller of Penske Racing over two decades ago. Design and engineering for the original build were centered around the use of NASCAR Grand National equipment. The car was subsequently featured in the May 2004 issue of Hemmings Muscle Machines along with other publications. The body features quad headlamps, a hood scoop, and more track-inspired performance equipment.

EXTERIOR – WHEELS AND TIRES

Steel 15-inch wheels are wrapped in tires that were replaced within the last year.

INTERIOR – FEATURES

The cabin is outfitted with black and white vinyl upholstery for the front buckets and rear bench. A fire extinguisher is mounted to the center tunnel.

INTERIOR – GAUGES

Instrumentation includes a 140-mph speedometer, clock, and fuel level and coolant temperature gauges. The five-digit mechanical odometer reads 13K miles, which the seller states is an accurate figure.

ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION

The 390ci V8 received a fluid change within the last year. Power is sent to the rear wheels via a column-shifted three-speed manual transmission.

UNDERCARRIAGE

This race-specification car sits on a heavy-duty suspension.

ADDITIONAL DETAILS

The sale includes a binder of documentation, a build sheet, and an owner’s manual.

@HudsonWasp – Hi, one of the articles from Don Miller stated that the car was a 360HP 352, you list it as a 390. I know they look the same but do you know the story on the 390, thanks. ...

Yes, the original 352 had cracked cylinders. The previous owner had an original 390 built with custom period correct cam, pistons etc all built to grand national specs.
