We spotted this ’63 T-bird hanging around Vine Street in Brooklyn. The first generation’s (55-57) instantly recognizable shape is synonymous with the Thunderbird name but we prefer these bullet-shaped third generation (61-63) models. This beautiful two-tone coupe is a 63, which added some tasteful flair to 61-62 models by replacing the chrome strip running the flank with a Mercedes SLR-like contour line that runs into the top of the front wheel well. It looks really handsome and adds European style to this seemingly un-restored Brooklyn classic.Also new in 63 were side vents on the door and the removal of the Thunderbird badge from the front fender. Probably the most talked about feature in these third gen T-birds were their “Swing Away” steering wheels that made entering and exiting the vehicle a little easier.
