About Ford Thunderbirds
The Ford Thunderbird may have rivaled Alfred Hitchcock for the most recognizable profile in the 1950s and 1960s. One of the first American-made personal luxury cars, the T-Bird's design evolved significantly over time, while always retaining a signature silhouette. Classics from the first generation, including the 1955 Ford Thunderbird, have distinctly vintage features, such as fins, circular headlights, and long bodies. By the 2000s, the Ford Thunderbird had a more compact form factor while still retaining throwback touches, such as a grid-like front grill and rounded headlights, making it an ideal combination of retro looks and modern efficiency. The Thunderbird even served as the body template for several Ford racers in the 1970s, making it an appealing option for those who prioritize performance. Ford fans can find new and used T-Birds on eBay, as well as a vast array of Ford Thunderbird parts and accessories for repairs and restorations to this American icon.
