About this title


The Thunderbird was originally designed to be small and racy with a unique look and personality that would set it apart from its contemporaries. Although never intended to be a sports car, it was only 52.1" high and its 102 wheelbase was an inch and a half shorter than that of the Model A!

From the Publisher:

320 pages and over 1000 pictures are employed to describe the early Ford Thunderbirds. The 1955-1957 models are clearly defined and there is additional coverage of the 1958 to 1969 versions. Highly recommended.
