About: Sultana Turquoise Metallic, Turquoise Interior, Automatic, 352ci V8
The second generation Ford Thunderbird was produced by Ford for the 1958 to 1960 model years as a successor to the popular 1955-1957 two-seater. In response to Ford-conducted surveys two major changes were made to attract potential buyers: two rear seats were added and the level of luxury and features of a full-sized car were incorporated into a mid-size platform.As a result, sales soared and the new model dramatically expanded the personal luxury car market, winning the Motor Trend Car of the Year in 1958. Over 200,000 units were produced in its three-year model run, quadruple that of the two-seater in its three-year span.
The model offered here is finished in its original color combination of Sultana Turquoise Metallic, with a Corinthian White top and a stunning Turquoise Interior. It is equipped with the 352ci V8, Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and factory air-conditioning. It is a very nice driving example that glides down the road and is a pleasure to drive.
