[column grid=”2″ span=”1″] Ford’s innovative 1955 Thunderbirds evolved into two door sedans and four door sedans as Ford wanted to capitalize on the Thunderbird name. The evolution of the Thunderbird series lasted from 1955 through 1990.

Had Ford continued with the two seat sport roadster in 1955-1957 as Chevrolet did with the Corvette, the competition would have been tough for both companies.
