Production Info
Alexander, I thought I'd post this here, and you have the ability to move it wherever you'd like:-

I found that 2,536 Golde Roof model were made. It does not say if the "36" units higher than your 2,500 were prototypes or early run models, but I have two unrelated sources both stating 2,536 for the total. By the way, not listed as an option, it was a seperate MODEL. The model code was 63B, whereas a regular 2-Door was 63A and the Convertible was 76A, but you probably knew all this!!
2,159 of the Golde Roofs had the 352 V-8, while 377 had the optional 430 V-8. 10 of all of the Golde Roof cars were standard shift.

I show the following for exterior paints:-
Raven Black
Winterset White
Grenedier Red *
Everglade Green *
Gulfstream Blue

Palomino Tan

RE: Production Info
I have seen that information that Golde Tops had body style 63B. Ford may have used that in their books, but all Golde Tops have stamped on the data plates 63A, just as the ordinary hardtops did.

My 1960 Thunderbird Golde Top data plate is below:

RE: Production Info
If I may supply some additional information regarding the Sunroof cars. I have a 60 sunroof and the original build sheet (actually, I have both of them). My car is listed on the sheet as a Model: 63A and the Top Code: 5.
Mine is also a 3 speed (code 2) with overdrive. The build sheet has a spot in the lower left corner for "Remarks". Under that is reads: "OD TRANS".
I like this forum!!
