Cody Burch came across a scrap of a 1963 Thunderbird build sheet from which we are able to identify 3Y89Z138964. This Sports Roadster is presumed to no longer exist. The build sheet was attached to a blue vinyl driver’s seat that came to Bird Nest Thunderbird Parts in Portland, Oregon. This car will be RN 64735 with the next update.

Florentine Green (color code I) is one of those paint colors we don’t see very often. It was a one-year only (1964) color, and it was exclusive to the Thunderbird at Ford Division. Mercury did use it on the Park Lane models with Sports Package.
Registry Number 64721 is the latest Thunderbird to enter the Registry and it resides in Newfoundland. Color I, with matching interior.
