RealRides of WNY - 1960 Thunderbird

The brochure told us that the 1960 Ford Thunderbird …rides four fortunate people in panoramic elegance,” while one print ad told us how it had “…become most everyone’s ‘someday’ car.” Purists decried Ford’s decision to add a back seat to the T-Bird for MY 1958; buyers however, proved Ford’s decision to be the right one, as sales increased from the 21,389 for the final two-seater of 1957 to 37,892 for the first four-place car in 1958. Sales only went up from there for the next two years of this second-gen car. We saw this one over the summer in the parking lot of the Buffalo Transportation Pierce-Arrow Museum in Buffalo.
