Enchantment unlimited … the new Ford Thunderbird

A distinguished kind of personal can that combines high performance and high style for a whole new world of driving fun.

The Thunderbird’s long, low, thoroughbred lines say “action”! And they speak the truth. A toe-touch on the gas pedal means no wailing. There’s breath-taking Trigger-Torque perform-ance with the new Thunderbird Special V-8 that’s specially mated with transmission and rear axle. With a low center of gravity (from cowl to ground is just over three feet) and Ford’s Ball-Joint Front Suspension, the Thunderbird corners as if on rails. The fun doesn’t stop here, for the Thunderbird is long on convenience.

Two tops are available. There’s a removable glass-fibre hard top … and a smart convertible fabric top. Windows roll up. The extra-wide foam-rubber-cushioned seat moves forward or back, up or down, at the touch of a button. The baggage compartment is ample. There’s a telescoping steering wheel. And you can have power steering, power brakes, and power windows … Fordomatic or Overdrive.
