This car looks like a Sports Roadster – Ford described it as a 2-passenger convertible; remove the tonneau and you have a 4-seater. However, there are a couple of points on the car that make us believe this is a standard convertible (not that there is anything wrong with that). Original Roadsters came with Kelsey Hayes Wire Wheels and no fender skirts (this was due to a clearance issue with the wire wheels).
Ford made only 455 Thunderbird Sports Roadsters for 1963 at a base price of $5,563. Compare this to the convertible which sold 5,913 units at a base price of $4,912. There were a total of 63,313 Thunderbirds produced for 1963. The power windows on this car would have set the original owner back $106 and the wire wheels came in at $343.
