Known for its classic design cues and the character of a true American sports car., the Ford Thunderbird is celebrating its 55th anniversary this year, and owners from across the country are coming together to celebrate the classic car.
Nearly 300 Ford Thunderbirds and their owners will be heading to Dearborn, Mich., with owners coming from 30 states with several coming from Canada, at Ford World Headquarters on Saturday, June 26, from noon to 4 p.m. The event is hosted by The Water Wonderland Thunderbird Club, The American Road Thunderbird Club and The Thunderbird Nest. There will be displayed Thunderbirds from every year of production.
"The Ford Thunderbird is one of the most iconic products in the history of the automobile," said Jim Farley, Ford's group vice president of Global Marketing. He also added that each generation of the Thunderbird had its personality "that ushered in a new generation of breakthroughs in design or technology."
The Ford Thunderbird became available to customers on Oct. 22, 1954, presenting a total of 11 generations of the model through to 2005 and has included classic two-seaters, roadsters, convertibles and four-door models, as well as hardtops and sedans. More than 4.3 million of Thunderbirds were sold.
