The 1962 Thunderbird was the third generation produced by Ford. It featured a new 390 cubic inch motor that produced up to 300 horsepower and was joined by a automatic three speed transmission. When this car was first produced it was so popular that it sold about 73,051 vehicles; making the third generation Thunderbird one of the most popular production years. However, in 1962 there was a special package that was introduced, the Sports Roadster Package. This package created a much higher price for the cars equipped with it that only 200 such vehicles were ever sold. This particular model of the car is extremely rare due to the low sale numbers.
