First a sports car in direct competition with the Chevrolet Corvette or European competitors such as Jaguar and Porsche, then quite soon a “personal luxury car” for dignified cruising – the Ford Thunderbird was always a product of the zeitgeist of its era. The company’s market strategists had their ear to the market and were very successful with this strategy for decades.

Connoisseurs distinguish a total of 11 generations, from the “Classic Bird” and “Square Bird” of the 1950s, to the “Bullet Bird”, “Flair Bird” and “Glamour Bird” of the 1960s, “Big Bird” and “Torino Bird” of the 1970s, to the “Box Bird”, “Aero Bird”, “Super Bird” of the 1980s/90s and the “Retro Bird”, which, however, was not to enjoy great success from 2002 to 2005.

Typical American features of the pre-1980 models were the large V8 engines with up to 7.5 litres of displacement – and corresponding fuel consumption. After years of “longer, wider, heavier”, the trend was reversed and later thunderbirds were again lighter and sportier.
