1960 Thunderbirds

The 1958 - 1960 Thunderbirds are now referred to as the 'Squarebirds' and were immensely popular. It's easy to see why -- they are surely the best designed Fords of those years. I've always thought that Ford should have conceded defeat on the Edsel before going into production, kept the two seater birds and made the Squarebirds the new model and called that the Galaxie or the Futura. In 1961, Thunderbird was reinvented once again (see following post for the 1962, which was very similar to the 1961) and Edsel was, alas, gone.
