RealRides of WNY #2424 ......................... 1977 Ford Thunderbird

Yesterday we talked about colors, and we’re going there again today. This 1977 Ford Thunderbird coupe appears to be painted in a Chamois Glow poly (a “modest extra cost” color) over Dark Brown metallic Tu-Tone with an (also optional) Autumn Maple two-piece vinyl roof. Ford’s personal luxury coupe was all-new and downsized for MY 1977, and was offered in two series: the “base” coupe and the Town Landau — the latter of which featured a “brushed aluminum wrapover tiara” and a “color-coordinated translucent  hood ornament” to outwardly distinguish it from your neighbor’s everyday, $5,063 coupe (the Town Landau was almost eight grand). Today’s RealRide was seen in May of 2021 at a Monday night cruise-in at the Wurlitzer Building in North Tonawanda.
