2003 Thunderbird
007 James Bond Edition

Model Year History Overview:

Thunderbird was originally designed to be small and racy with a unique look and personality that would set it apart from its contemporaries.  Although never intended to be a sports car, it was only 52.1” high and its 102 inch wheelbase was an inch and a half shorter than that of a Model A.  Luxurious enough for most discriminating buyer, the 1955 model offered plush vinyl upholstery, “Astra-Dial” control panel, adjustable steering wheel, tachometer, and clock.  Yet, with a 292 cid V-8 engine rated a 202 horsepower, four barrel carburetor and dual exhaust, it was high-spirited enough for any enthusiast.  Although the original two-seated T-Bird was only manufactured for three years, it was so advanced in concept that its influence in the automobile industry is still being felt.  In1955 Thunderbird outsold the Chevrolet Corvette 20 to 1.
The popular two-seater T-Bird was re-introduced in 2002.  In 2003 a unique 007 James Bond model appeared for only one year.  It featured a special Coral paint with a Performance White hardtop, a Black canvas soft top, and a White leather interior.  The 2005 model was the 50th Anniversary of the Thunderbird.  T-Bird production was discontinued after the ’05 model year.  Ford plans to bring back this famous marque later.
