The Ford Thunderbird 1964 has been renamed to Baron Thundercat 1964 due to copyright reasons.
The fourth generation of the Ford Thunderbird is a large personal luxury car produced by Ford for the 1964 to 1966 model years. This generation of the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off, "formal" look, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. The Thunderbird's sporty image had by that time become only that: the standard 390-cubic-inch 300 bhp (224 kW) V8 engine needed nearly 11 seconds to push the heavy T-bird to 60 mph (96 km/h). The softly sprung suspension allowed considerable body lean, wallow, and float on curves and bumps.
Hinting at its roots in the previous generation Thunderbird that it evolved from, the new model retained a similar grille design with quad headlights and a 113.2 inches (2,875 mm) wheelbase. As before, the new Thunderbird continued to be offered in hardtop, convertible, and Landau versions. The 300 horsepower (220 kW) 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE V8 continued as the standard engine for the Thunderbird. It was paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission. For 1965, sequential turn signals were added, flashing the individual segments of the broad, horizontal tail lights in sequences from inside to outside to indicate a turn. Also new for 1965 were standard front disc brakes and doubled sided keys.
Even though it was the last year of the generation, 1966 saw a stylistic revision for the Thunderbird highlighted by a new egg-crate style grille with a large Thunderbird emblem at its center and a single-blade front bumper. The rear bumper was restyled to include new full-width taillamps. Engine choices were also revised for 1966. The standard 390 cu in (6.4 L) V8 equipped with a single four-barrel carburetor produced 315 horsepower (235 kW). Newly optional and taking the top position for performance was a 345 horsepower (257 kW) 428 cu in (7.0 L) FE V8. The 428 cost only $86 over the base engine and was a popular option. This would be the last year for the convertible until the "retro" models of 2002-05.
At stock, the Thundercat will do 130 MPH/210 KMH without using Nitrous.
With Nitrous, it will do 132 MPH/212 KMH.
The Acceleration on a Stock Thundercat is really slow, It rivals the Gauntlet Gazella (Chevy Impala) in terms of Stock Acceleration.
Without racing breaks, the Stocks breaks on the Thundercat is meh, it's not the best but it can stop at a good amount of time.
At stock, it can turn pretty well, even at high speeds (around 150), at 200 MPH, it can't turn as much, so it's much better when breaking at least 200 when turning.
When Upgraded, the Thundercat becomes a good starter vehicle, but it does almost has an equal stats to the Gauntlet Gazella (Chevy Impala), just with a slight better at handling and top speed.
Pro Short: 162 mph/262 KMH
Pro Long: 188 MPH/303 KMH
Pro Short: 200+ MPH
Pro Long: 200+ MPH to 300+ MPH
The Acceleration does upgrade by average, that it could rival an upgraded Gauntlet Gazella (Chevy Impala) at acceleration.
With the Racing breaks, it doesn't even matter but it does help a little.
With the Racing tires, it does help a little with turning at 180 to 200 MPH, But you still need to break when going over 200 MPH, but it handles quite nicely.
- The 1958 addition of a rear seat to the Thunderbird, while initially controversial, marked the creation of market segment eventually known as personal luxury vehicles. An American interpretation of the grand tourer, personal luxury cars were built with a higher emphasis on driving comfort and convenience features over handling and high-speed performance. From 1968 to 1998, Lincoln-Mercury marketed their own versions of the Thunderbird as the Mercury Cougar and the Continental Mark III, Mark IV, Mark V, Lincoln.
- The Ford Thunderbird is also colloquially called the T-Bird.
- The Thunderbird was produced in a number of body configurations through its production life, including four-seat hardtop coupe, four-seat convertible, five-seat convertible and hardtop, four-door pillared hardtop sedan, six-passenger hardtop coupe, and five-passenger pillared coupe, with the final generation produced as a two-seat convertible.
- In '05, the T-bird came back, but unlike the Ford GT and revamped '05 Ford Mustang (all of these 3 were made with classic styling in mind), was a failure, and lacked appeal to its customers.
