1964 Ford Thunderbird

The Ford Thunderbird is totally restyled for 1964, though its overall silhouette remains in touch with the previous models. Its front end appears more aggressive, with a large grille, quad headlights placed farther away from each other, and an air scoop on the bonnet. The confidential Sports Roadster disappears as a separate model, though its tonneau cover and wire wheels become optional for the convertible version.
