I can't get over how awkward the relationship between the rear suicide door and the landau top is. In terms of design weirdness it overshadows the not-quite-full-width grille design. That said, I love Thunderbirds of any vintage, and the simple one piece taillight design is just gorgeous.

After 1966, the Thunderbird grew into huge lincolnesque land yachts. Of this body style, the 2 door hardtop is best looking.

Really though, these and the Porsche 914 epitomize that 1960's Munster period. Premonitions of the daft '70s but dark.

You drove this to a burl walnut veneered cocktail lounge after a long day of selling avocado colored kitchen appliances.

I lived on a farm in Mead, Wa once that had the same car in the barn. I love these things!

This is actually an incredibly fucking cool car. The combination of the suicide doors, the cragar wheels (?), the patina, the absolutely in-sane design of the grill which alludes to a somewhat space-age sense of the future, the frickin' landau vinyl top with the funny chrome faux hinge (harking back to historic folding carriage tops), the whole thing is just too much, too cool, too weird, too awesome. Someone referred to the Munsters - heh-yeah hell yes! This might be one a your best posts ever on this blog.
