“Italien” Concept Car
This special 1963 Thunderbird features a new roof line / trunk with aerodynamic styling and a customized leather interior with bucket seats front and rear. The Thunderbird Italien was a styling study from Ford's Thunderbird styling department who actually built the plywood buck over which they sculpted the clay model of the roof in their own studios. Construction was done at Ford outsourcing contractor DTS where many other concept cars were built. When completed this one-off design was taken by Ford to many of the Autoramas such as Detroit, Miami, Los Angeles and more.
Having been featured in more than 14+ magazines this car is probably the most famous Thunderbird in the world. This car has recently received a complete restoration in 2007 and is in as new condition.
