1966 Ford Thunderbird

An important face-lift sees the Thunderbird receiving a more aggressive front end and full-width rear lights. A larger 7.0-litre “428” engine becomes optional to propel the heavy car, but performance is not in the minds of Ford’s engineers, as the T-Bird is known to have one of the softest suspension of all of Detroit’s production.
