1972 Ford Thunderbird

The brand new 1972 Thunderbird is, essentially, Ford's version of the new Lincoln Continental Mark IV. It is therefore a plusher, larger and more expensive automobile than ever before. It retains the now traditional single-piece taillights, but only exists as a coupe and no longer as a sedan.
