1962 Ford Thunderbird

Ford introduces two new versions of its Thunderbird this year: the “Landau” hardtop coupe, which features a vinyl-covered roof with simulated landau bars; and the spectacular “Sports Roadster”, with a removable fibreglass tonneau covering the rear seats to give to the car the look of a two-seater, and wire wheels. A three-carb 340 bhp engine is optional.
