Ford's Thunderbird created to act as a retort to the Chevrolet Corvette, but rather than becoming a rival to the European sports cars imported into the United States, Ford created a completely new market segment around the Thunderbird, the personal luxury car. While a performance car in its own right, the Thunderbird focused more on comfort than speed. A total of 53,166 units were produced for the three model years 1955-1957, with only 16,155 made in 1956.
