Nowy, sportowy Thunderbird napędzany jest 193 konnym, 4,8 litrowym silnikiem Mercury V8. Modele podstawowe Mainline i Customline wyróżniają się skromniejszym wystrojem (proste listwy na bokach nadwozia) i wyposażeniem. Oferta silników obejmuje rzędową ‘szóstkę’ o pojemności 3,6 l. i mocy 120 KM, oraz V8 4,5 l. rozwijające 162 lub 182 KM (Power Pack). Jako wyposażenie dodatkowe można zamówić pasy bezpieczeństwa.

Ford Mystere

 

In September Ford released photos of a futuristic body design for a car that would be propelled by a gas turbine powerplant. A large bubble of glass serve as roof, windows and windshield. Hinged at the back the canopy could be opened up 70-degrees, front seats would swivel outward and passengers could easily enter and exit through half-doors. The scoop at the top of the windshield supply fresh air into the 4-passenger cockpit. A radiotelphone is housed in a console between the two rear bucket-type seats, and the aircraft-type steering wheel is a "throw-over," meaning that the car could be driven from either front seat. Other modern features are pushbutton ignition switch, padded dash and a television set behind the front seat.
