One of just 2,000 built—the 1963 Thunderbird Limited Edition Landau had an international debut in the Principality of Monaco. The first car was given to Prince Rainier and Princess Grace (actress Grace Kelly). This is #1492 of the remaining 1,999 production cars offered for sale to the public.

Finished in Corinthian White with a Rose Beige vinyl roof and White leather interior, this limited edition included special simulated Rosewood interior trim, a numbered plate on the console, deluxe wheel covers, and of course all of the T-bird's long list of standard features were included as well.

This car has every option available in 1963 except for the AM/FM radio, 4-way power passenger seat, and the high performance M-engine option, which some believe was discontinued mid-year due to slow sales, and as such may have not been available at the time this mid-year model introduction was made.

Please note that this car is equipped with the very rare Vacuum-Operated Door Locks, a $34.10 option that was first offered in 1963, but not frequently ordered.
