1966 Dark Red Ford Thunderbird by City Cruiser

4 City Cruiser models of long-ago convertibles.

This dark red Thunderbird is one of four convertibles in this private collection; two are Ford Thunderbirds, and two are Buicks. It would appear that these were all made in the Hong Kong factory for City Cruiser in the earliest years, though I find no indication of their year of production.

Ford brought out their first Thunderbird car in 1955 to compete with the new Corvette that General Motors brought out the previous year. I'm not sure how the competition turned out, but Ford brought more changes to their Thunderbird pretty well every year - until 2005, sometimes going for a more sporty look and then some years trying to appeal to those who wanted a more of a luxury or status symbol car.

I haven't found out yet, whether they conceded the war to Corvettes, or just got tired of the war.

It seems to me there were some songs about the T-Bird by popular groups like the Beach Boys, or others back in the 1960s. (Not my kind of music, but I heard it anyway, when the radio was on).

If you are keen to know more about Thunderbird Fords, you will find it easy to discover a lot of information online by doing a simple Google search, for there are many Thunderbird devotees who just love to share all they know and think or believe about those cars.

This 1966 Dark Red Ford Thunderbird would make a nice little keepsake for someone with fond memories of this model in real life back when they were young!

By the way, this comes with a tattered looking card; I'm including it for you might want to see the list of models that City Cruiser made for this particular series.

(I can be persuaded to sell all four of these convertibles for $20 Cdn as a set.)
