1967 Ford Thunderbird

The introduction of a hardtop coupe in the Ford Thunderbird’s 1958 range has been a landmark; equally important is the disappearance of the convertible and the introduction, among the T-Birds brand new models, of a four-door version. Its rear “suicide” doors betray the connection that now exists between the Thunderbird and the Lincoln Continental. The posh Ford is a large and luxurious car with a unique style. It retains last year’s full width rear lights, now echoed at the front by a full width grille with hidden headlights.
