1962 Ford M code Thunderbird So… Here’s a rare bird for you! A very small number of 1962 and 1963 Ford Thunderbirds were made with the sporty M-Code, having the high-performance 390 six-barrel, Sports V-8 engine. Each M-Code series car is recognized by an “M” in its vehicle identification number. The M-Code was introduced in January 1962, and is associated with the Sports Roadster. Only a few performance oriented buyers managed to order their Tudor Hardtop with the special M-Code engine. This M-Code was one of those fortunate cars. The M-Code engine, for insurance purposes, was conservatively reported to have 340 bhp with a 10.5.1 compression, dual exhaust, and a trio of Holley two-barrel carburettors on a cast aluminium intake. This engine was offered by using the cylinder heads from Ford’s 406 cu. in. engine (405 bhp) with higher-rate valve springs, a specially ground camshaft unique to the T-Bird engine, and a high-pressure oil pump. According to Thunderbird! by Ray Miller, 1973, the M-Code engine was rated as having 400 bhp, making it the highest performance rated TBird built. This particular M Code has been registered as number 17430 with the 1962-1963 “M” – Series Registry compiled by William A. Wonder, found at WWW.tbirdregistry.com Production Figures M-Code production was limited to the 1962 and 1963 model years. The first Birds documented to be equipped with the M-Code engine were built in January, 1962. Production of the M-Code series ceased in mid-January, 1963. According to William Wonder, who wrote Thunderbird Restoration Guide 1958-1966, © 1997, only a combined total of 275 M-Code series cars are known to have been built in that 12 month period, most of which were roadsters. This car is one of 46 known M code hardtops left in existence and is a great example. One for the car connoisseur! Currently a new import, selling with 12 months qld registration and compliance upon sale.
