HISTORY:

“The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sporty two-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette, it was not marketed as a sports car. Ford positioned the Thunderbird as an upscale model and is credited in developing a new market segment, the personal luxury car. In 1958, the Thunderbird gained a second row of seats. Succeeding generations became larger until the line was downsized in 1977, again in 1980, and once again in 1983. Sales were good until the 1990s, when large 2-door coupes became unpopular; production ceased at the end of 1997. In 2002 production of the Thunderbird started again, a revived 2-seat model was launched, which was available through the end of the 2005 model year. From its introduction in 1955 to its phaseout in 2005, Ford produced over 4.4 million Thunderbirds.

Purists were mad when an enlarged Thunderbird appeared in 1958 sporting a backseat, but Ford officials couldn’t have cared less; demand was soaring for the all-new “Squarebird.” Sales jumped a whopping 76 percent in 1958 to 37,892, and another 67,456 Thunderbirds followed in 1959, joined by 92,843 in 1960. 1958 saw the introduction of a hardtop model and a unitized body/frame platform similar to the construction used by Lincoln’s equally new Continental. The wheelbase increased to 113 inches, overall length went up 2 feet, and the weight jumped about a half-ton. To move this mass, Ford’s new FE-series 352 cubic-inch V-8 replaced the 312-cid Y-block. Lincoln’s even larger 430 cubic-inch V-8 became an option in 1959. A fully automatic convertible top appeared in 1959, followed by this country’s first postwar sunroof, a manually controlled hardtop option offered in 1960. The coils-spring suspension used in the rear in 1958 was traded for traditional leaf springs in 1959.”-Wikipedia
