Is it a painting? That’s an odd color for a vinyl top.
Love the 1966 T-Bird, all though, that blind spot is pretty bad. Of all the non two seat T-Birds I bet the 1966 model has the highest survival rate.
As a kid, I was fascinated by the sequential flashing tail lights.
I hope some FMC engineer got a bonus for this besides a pocket protector or tie clip!!!
This roofline is one that I used to love but don’t care so much for now. The car, I mean. The one on the building is quite attractive.
I am reminded of the gold-painted car-shaped bottles of after-shave lotion that women used to buy for guys who liked cars.
This is a great photo. I always loved these cars — still have a dealer promo of the ’66 I was given as a kid. I think of all the Flair Birds, the ’66 was the best looking.
Another great pic by Curtis Perry! While colors may have been a bit over saturated, it still doesn’t change the appeal to me of this color on the profile of this Thunderbird.
Great car. Too bad it has an aftermarket bodyside molding (ugly end caps and lacking flow-through @ the fuel door).
Just browsing some of my old Nat Geographics and came across this ad. I love the ’66, I build one as an AMT model when I was a kid. I painted it bronze, a darker shade than the photo above. Mine was a convertible.
