Curbside Find: 1971 Ford Thunderbird – The Beak ‘bird In Canary Yellow

Photos from the Cohort by nifticus392.

Here’s one that doesn’t ever appear much on our pages, a Bunkie-beak era Thunderbird. And sticking to bird themes, this one showed up in a color that only reminds me of canaries. How appropriate.

Now the Ford colors are either a Light Yellow or a Grabber Yellow. If it’s a factory color. It’s always a bit hard to tell with digital photos. Overall, maybe not the shade that would be my first choice for a ’70s Thunderbird, but somehow, with this one’s beak, somehow rather fitting.
