In this marvelous new book, automotive historian, John Gunnell turns his attention from the Spartan ponies and horsepower hogs to focus on a slightly different Ford product. From its modest beginnings in 1955, the Ford Thunderbird's sleek, sporty two-seater was rivaled by Chevy's Corvette, but with its comfort and luxury-and with its wheels as its wings-the T-Bird soared past the competition in convenience and satisfaction as a truly classic American automobile.This book is a must have for those who collect T-Bird advertisements, factory sales literature, and T-Bird related Ford memorabilia, and especially for anyone who has had the pleasure of owning one of these Seventh Heaven classics. The latest market values, engine details, performance options, and VIN decoding, as well as the many conveniences offered for Ford's luxury sports car are included for all of the hot collectibles, such as the pre-production Fairlane Birds, the Early Birds, the Square Birds, and the Big Birds."
