Wheels in the Grass

This week we found a 1967 Ford Thunderbird four-door Landau, parked in the yard of a burned-out home in the town of Lewiston. Back in 1955, when the T-Bird debuted as a two-seat sports car, who’d have thought there’d ever be a four-door sedan model? But here it is, and it stayed in production from 1967 through the 1971 model year. A total of 77,541 four-doors were built during those five years; in 1967 there were 24,967 (which was the high point in sales) and they listed starting at $4,825. Thunderbirds eventually went out of production after the 1997 model year, only to reappear for 2003-2005 as a high-priced luxury two-seat convertible. You can go back home again!
