We need your help and photo contributions!

 

Ideal photos for the "Grills & Tails" section should be

shot at close range and from a straight-on angle.

(The '55s, 56s, 58s & 62s above are good examples)

 

Please e-mail photos to the Webmaster.

 

 

 

 

Special Thunderbirds

 

 

 

'60 with Optional Sunroof.

2,536 were made with the optional sunroof.

 

 

 

 

The '61 Indy Pace Car.

'61 was Indianapolis Motor Speedway's 50th Anniversary and the Thunderbird was chosen as the official pace car.  34 Thunderbird convertibles were painted in a special gold colour for the Golden Anniversary.  Out of the 34 cars, one was the official pace car a second being the back up pace car and the remaining 32 were Festival pace cars.  The 32 Festival cars had different markings than the two pace cars.

 

'62 Sport Roadster.

1,427 were made Sport Roadsters came with a Tonneau cover over the rear seat, Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, Sport Roadster fender emblem, and a passenger assist grab bar.

 

1963 Ford Thunderbird "Italien" Concept Car
Shown as part of Ford's Custom Caravan and exhibited at the 1964 New York World's Fair.  The Italien was featured in Ford's 1962-63
"Custom Car Caravan" and appeared in Autoramas throughout the United States including Detroit, Los Angeles, Miami and more.

The Italien was featured in more than 14 magazines in 1963 and 1964 including "Motor Trend", "Hot Rod", "Car Life", "Motorcade",
"Speed and Custom" and others.  The Italien also appeared in the 1964 New York Worlds Fair's "Cavalcade of Custom Cars" and was
prominently featured in a special World's Fair publication.  After appearing in the World's Fair, records from Ford's Jacque Passino's
files indicate the Italien was destined for a fate typical of most Ford concept cars -- The crusher.  However, in September 1964, the Italien
was sold or presented to actor Dale Robertson of TV's "Tales of Wells Fargo", "Wagon Train" and other shows.  Around 1986, noted Ford
collector Don Chambers purchased the car with the idea of adding it to the auto museum he planned for his retirement.

Thunderbird restorer Tom Maruska purchased it in January 2006 and completely restored the Italien to exacting and documented original specifications.  Recently "Legendary Ford" magazine featured a series covering the restoration of the Italien over five issues culminating
with the Italien appearing on the cover of the November/December 2007 issue.
