Overview

In the 1950s, America was awakening from years of wartime rationing to find itself in the midst of a post-war boom: it was a good time to be an American. and people were craving a good-time American car. In 1954, they got their wish, as the first Thunderbird rolled off the Ford assembly line. Both sporty and stylish, the T-bird straddled the line between race car and cruising car with uncommon grace. And now. more than forty years after that first Bird took flight, Americans still love their Thunderbirds. This stylish volume chronicles the evolution of the Ford Thunderbird from its original conception to the present day, with an eye toward the all-new, retro-styled Bird that Ford will unveil for the year 2000.
