1956 T-Bird

The Ford Thunderbird is an automobile that

was manufactured by Ford in the United States
over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005.
The Thunderbird created a market niche that
eventually became known as the personal luxury car.

 

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.
