The Ford Thunderbird hit the market in 1955 in was a direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette. While the Corvette aimed to impress with performance, the T-bird was all about style and substance. Dubbed the first “personal car” by Ford, it was described as a direct descendant of the bespoke 1930s roadsters and was aimed as a brisk grand tourer. It was light for its era and the powerful V8 could propel it to around 120 mph. The 1955 model featured the proven 292cid Y-block V8 and had bumper mounted exhausts and a trunk-mounted spare tire.
