It is a pop-culture icon, a constant presence in movies and music-and for slightly more than 40 years, it was one of Ford's most popular and successful cars.
When Ford stopped production of the legendary Thunderbird recently, it marked the end of an automotive era. Through good years and bad, from two-seat sportster to luxury coupe, from the silver screen to the radiowaves, the T-Bird was an American icon.
Here is the complete story of the Thunderbird. See how it was initially conceived as a challenge to the Corvette, but rethought as a luxury coupe when Ford was unwilling to follow their GM counterparts down the road to a pure sports car. Get an up-close look at countless classic T-Birds, from the coveted original two-seater to the final car to wear the wings. From the men who were behind this American original to its memorable moments on the silver screen, drive into history with the Ford Thunderbird.
