’Bird of para par­adise

Wheels (Australia) - - Showroom -

Thun­der­bird was a lot of car for $US2700 (about the price of an FJ Holden in Oz); al­most 4000 orders were placed in the first 10 days. A nicely sculpted, vinyl-up­hol­stered bucket seat with four-way power adjustment and tele­scop­ing steer­ing col­umn suited most sizes. ‘As­tra-dial Con­trol Panel’ fea­tured a tacho and clock as stan­dard. Op­tions in­cluded fold­ing soft-top, power steer­ing, elec­tric win­dows, a $100 ra­dio and a $25 en­gine chrome ac­ces­sory kit.
