I wish I did, they are great looking cars for the 3 years they were made.

No, but I want a white '59 convertible with turquoise/white interior to stable with my '63 Sports Roadster and the '63 white/turquoise hardtop I have owned for 40 years. I do have a few friends with them, though...

I have a 59, not running well (knock) but complete. Not for sale presently. Have several motors, just not time to install one yet.

Very nice 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible. These are great looking old Fords.

One is listed for sale in Ohio. I think his numbers are a bit off, but the description is good for a laugh!

I actually like the squarebirds better than the 55/57 Birds. Never had one, though, but would've liked one.

I can visually see why the 61-63 are called "bullet birds", but why are the 58-60 called
"square birds"?
