For 1964 the Thunderbird was restyled in favor of a more squared-off appearance, which was mostly evident when viewing the car from the side or rear. Hinting at its roots in the previous generation Thunderbird that it evolved from, the new model retained a similar grille design with quad headlights and a 113.2 inches (2,875 mm) wheelbase. As before, the new Thunderbird continued to be offered in hardtop, convertible, and Landau versions. The 300 horsepower (220 kW) 390 cu in (6.4 L) FE V8 continued as the standard engine for the Thunderbird. It was paired with a 3-speed automatic transmission. For 1965, sequential turn signals were added, flashing the individual segments of the broad, horizontal tail lights in sequences from inside to outside to indicate a turn. Also new for 1965 were standard front disc brakes, and doubled sided keys.

About the Artist:

James Knake is a professional illustrator/graphic designer with a B.F.A in Illustration from Ringling College of Art & Design. He has had a fascination with cars since he was a young boy. Always playing with car toys and building models. While in high school, he was hanging around with the guys who had Camaros, GTOs, Mustangs, anything fast with a big motor! James became obsessed with Muscle Cars from the 60’s and 70’s. After high school he purchased an old beat up 1967 Pontiac Firebird for $300 and proceeded to spend his time fixing it up and learning on the go. Bodywork, engine rebuilding, electrical systems, you name it. He sold that car years ago, but his love for classic muscle cars continues to this day. Now James has turned his attention to illustrating them. He decided to start painting some of his favorite cars from the 50’s, 60’s and 70’s.
