This 1966 Thunderbird was number 54,822 to roll off the assembly line at Wixom, Michigan – on Wednesday, April 16, 1966. Of the 69,176 Thunderbirds produced for the 1966 model year, 5,049 were convertibles. It sat in my garage since I purchased it the early 80's, along with a growing pile of NOS parts and my promise to restore it when life's priorities would allow, which finally happened in 2015. The car was disassembled - down to the last nut and bolt - and after many hours spent restoring them along with all the components to like-new condition, every attempt was made to reconstruct it as it was first produced --- with a few very obvious exceptions: In 1962 Ford offered the “Sports Roadster” option which included a fiberglass tanneau cover over the rear seat, Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels, a 3-2 barrel carburetor and manifold, and a chrome dress-up fit for the engine bay. The Sports Roadster package was also available in 1964, but only about 50 were delivered. This combination produced such a unique look that these features were incorporated into this restoration. The other exceptions are Stelling polished aluminum valve coves which nicely compliment the Sports Roadster air cleaner and a 7-inch brake vacuum booster needed to clear the valve covers. Also, after looking through many photos of similar cars, I decided to change the color from Candy Apple Red to Raven Black. I think the black interspersed with chrome and polished stainless makes a stunning combination that nicely complements the car's artful design --- something that is largely missing from today's cars. The following is a link to a series of photos which very briefly summarize the restoration process.

Along the way I bought two parts cars, used some parts for my 1666 Town Landau which has been my “daily driver” since 1986, and stored the rest away knowing they would come in handy when I finally got to the convertible. With both projects completed, I have a fairly large inventory of parts that I am hoping can find new home.
They are catalogued in the following two links: The first is a list of the parts along with my suggested cost and comments as to condition and application. The second is a folder of photos where the title of each sub-folder is the same as the “Description” in the list.

Except where otherwise noted these items were removed from 1966 Thunderbirds, but due to the similarity between the 1964, 65 and 66 models they may also fit 1964 and 65 models. Also listed are comments including whether they are specific to a model 63A (Standard Hardtop), 63C (Town Hardtop), 63D (Town Landau), or 76A (convertible). Unless otherwise noted the parts are as-removed from the cars. Prices do not include shipping. Every attempt will be made to minimize shipping cost by using either USPS or UPS unless otherwise requested. Large items may require special preparation or packaging for shipping which is not included in the cost. Please contact me via PM or e-mail at cacockrum@aol.com with any questions or comments.

Thanks,
Art Cockrum

I have a large collection of parts left over from the restoration of my ’66 convertible. Rather than send them to the recycle center, I listed and photographed them in hopes that they would be useful to someone. These files are too big to include in this post, so I put them in my Dropbox.

A PDF of the list can be accessed by opening this link:

And the photos are in folders, whose names correspond to the list, are in this link:

Don’t hesitate to send me a PM or e-mail me at cacockrum@aol.com if you have any questions.
