The Thunderbird for 1963 introduced several firsts for the automotive market. The most distinctive feature of the 1961 to 1963 Thunderbirds was the highly touted 'Swing Away' steering wheel. With the steering column installed transmission gear selector in the park position the steering wheel would slide approximately 18 inches (460 mm) to the right allowing the driver to exit the vehicle easily. This would also prevent the gear selector to be functional until the steering wheel was returned to the center position. Other innovations include a floating rear view mirror, directly attached to the interior of the windshield. Common on almost all automobiles produced today, this feature was first found on 1961 Thunderbirds. Depending on variable options Thunderbirds for 1963 could be purchased with options like air conditioning, power windows, power seats, AM radio, fender skirts and white wall tires. Several standard features, like power steering and power brakes, back up lights and bucket seats were costly options on most other automobiles of the time. Frame Up Restoration completion NO RUST!!!!
