1963 Ford Thunderbird 2-seater
The original 1961-1963 T-bird is built upon a 113-inch wheelbase chassis and although I think the styling is unique — I’ve never gotten past that fact that it wasn’t a true 2-seater as the ’55-57 models which were built upon a 102-inch wheelbase. My neighbor recently purchased a ’61 T-bird and (with permission) I did some eyeball engineering upon it and with pinstripe tape to determine where cut lines could be made given lofts and crowns. This digital restyling concept is a result of that analysis and how I’d build it given my background of fabrication and metalshaping.
update: This project is going into my own garage and for myself. And I will be using a 1963 model as per the illustrations. Drivetrain will be modern Mustang 5.0 (which has a 101.5in wheelbase) and user a modern frame of my own construction.
