In 1955 Ford rolled out with something it hadn't seen since 1938, a two-seater. The Thunderbird was developed by Ford to compete with the first-generation Corvette. Dubbed "a personal car of distinction", the car built on the heritage of the roadsters of the 30's, yet was making strides toward becoming the next evolution of a personal luxury car. The car was designed to be so lightweight yet accept such a massive V-8, it truly was the epitome of Hot Rodding. It did however focus more on driver comfort than speed, and because of this it was not a direct rival to the European sports cars.
If you're lucky enough to see a '55-'57 Thunderbird, chances are it won't be this nice. With all the amenities you would want in a luxury car like the 4-way power seats, an added easy entry/exit mode that moves the seat back so you can get in/out easily, a 312 cubic inch engine that made nearly 300 horsepower, and a whole list of things you wouldn't believe existed in 1957, you'll be left wanting nothing else in a car. and with only 21,000 made, I'm sure there's not many left.
