National Geographic : 1959 May
THUNDERBIRD '59 This years outstanding success, too! America's most admired car is more ad mired than ever in '59. This is not surprising. You won't see another car with lines so clean and unaffected. This automotive jewel comes by its beauty naturally. In fact, the new Thunderbird has led many motorists to ask themselves some rather pointed questions about today's motor cars: Why pay the price of a big luxury car when the 59 Thunderbird is as elegant as any car ever built-yet costs far less than other luxury cars? Why settle for standard performance when the combination of Thunderbird power and Thunderbird compactness has already made the T-bird's performance a legend? Why own a conventional convertible when the new Thunderbird convertible's soft top dis appears completely into the spacious trunk? An other exclusive Ford achievement! Why drive a massive, cumbersome car when the compact Thunderbird provides all the room and all the comfort for four people that you get in bigger, costlier luxury cars? Why own a stereotyped "prestige" car (of which you see millions on the road right now) when the Thunderbird is so smart, so distinctive? See your Ford dealer at your earliest oppor tunity. Drive the new Thunderbird and see how brilliantly it performs with its standard 300-hp Thunderbird Special V-8 engine. Or, if you pre fer, there's the optional 350-hp T-bird engine that makes the Thunderbird the peer of even the sports car field for performance. Thunderbird -the car everyone would love to own!
