There are two ways of identifying your Thunderbird. The first is to narrow down your classic T-bird year by specific exterior parts and markings. There are typically two different body types per year, the convertible and the hardtop. However, 1962–66 include other types like Landaus, Town Coupes, and Roadsters.
The second is using the VIN on your car. These are located on either the door jamb for 1958–62s on the driver’s side, or the driver’s door for 1963–66s. The VIN helps if you can’t use the outer markings due to damage or just the need of restoration. You can enter your VIN below to find out some basic info about your T-bird.
