RealRides of WNY - 1964 Thunderbird

This 1964 Ford Thunderbird is a perfect example of how a simple feature like a pair of fender skirts can drastically alter a car’s looks. Notice how much more formal the red cars look in a magazine ad illustration from back in the day (inset). The unskirted rear quarters of today’s RealRide give the car a much more sporty appearance, IMO. What you can’t see in this photo is an example of one of my favorite back seat designs of all time. Check out the convertible pic below, which really shows it off. Saw today’s subject car back in 2016 in a Youngstown lot.
