Ford Thunderbird 1967
For 1967 the Thunderbird would be a larger car, moving it closer to Lincoln as the company chose to emphasize the “luxury” part of the “personal luxury car” designation. Ford chose to abandon the Thunderbird’s traditional unibody construction for this larger car, turning to a body-on-frame method with sophisticated rubber mountings between the two to reduce vibration and noise. A new option was four small lights on the ceiling directly above the rear view mirror that lit up for emergency flasher use, low-fuel warning light, door-ajar light, and seat-belt reminder light.
