If ever there was a car that represented all that was great about mid-century Detroit styling, the Thunderbird is it.
The country was aghast when the new for '58 Thunderbird was stretched into a four-seater. Everyone, it seemed, loved the cute, cozy styling of the small T-Birds that preceded it. For the era, they where sensacional looking cars - they still are today - but not everyone who lusted after a 1955 - '57 Thunderbird could justify buying one due to their limited seating capacity. And so, many didn't.
