1960 Ford Thunderbird HistoryThe Thunderbird "TBird" was an automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. When introduced it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car.Although the Thunderbird had been considered a rousing success Ford executivesmdash;particularly Robert McNamara ndash; felt that the cars position as a twoseater restricted its sales potential. As a result the car was redesigned as a fourseater for 1958. Though retaining a design as a twodoor hardtop coupe/convertible the new Thunderbird was considerably larger than the previous generation.The new Thunderbird began a sales momentum previously unseen with the car. It was also historymaking becoming the first individual model line to earn Motor Trend "Car of the Year" honors. For 1960 the Thunderbird was given another new grille and other minor stylistic changes along with a newly optional manually operated sunroof for hardtop models.VIN 0Y71J119314Ultra rare 1960 Thunderbird ldquo;Jrdquo; Code 1 of only 3900 produced in 1960.
