Ford Week 1 of 4: 1975 Ford Thunderbird

By the time the sixth generation Thunderbird was introduced in 1972, the only thing it had in common with the original was the name. Gone was the handsome, unique, sporty two-seater; the T-bird was now a massive coupe, based on a Lincoln Continental (itself a poor use of the name). In fact, to the untrained eye, there was almost no difference between the Thunderbird, Elite, Cougar, and Continental. All were big, all had the same styling elements, and all were vinyl-plastered 70s Broughams. This '75 features a green interior, vinyl roof, and trim pieces, in addition to the handsome green with gold pinstriping body.
