1964 Ford Thunderbird

Ford's Thunderbird started out as a two seat roadster, though in 1958, the new 4-seat 'Squarebird' arrived--bigger, more practical, but never as cool. In 1961, the Thunderbird was redesigned, featuring the distinctive pointed front end and afterburner taillights.Though it was a full restyle, the new-for-'64 T-Bird looked more like a facelift and seemed, to me, pretty dated. Perhaps it's because even in the mid-60s, as shown on this example, there was still a lot of "space age" styling details that would look more at home on a 50s design.
