Another weekend at sea on his yacht.

He has his boat, and I have my Thunderbird.

He can keep the boat.

The 1960 Thunderbird set a new sales record for the 4th year in a row. With sales approaching the 100,000 mark, GM finally took notice and decided they needed to respond, but it would be another 3 years before true competition for the Thunderbird would be marketed.

The 1960 T-Bird styling was basically a face-lift of the 1958 and 1959s, but despite being in its third year, was more popular than ever before. A new manually-operated Sun Roof panel was available on Hardtops, and only 2,536 cars were ordered with this option making them very desirable today.

New exterior paint colors, a new sew pattern for the standard interior trim, and new versions of the Thunderbird emblem and script appeared, as well as new oval front fender ornaments.

For the first time, the convertible top mechanism was completely automatic. Operated by a T-handle under the instrument panel to the right of the steering column, electric solenoids and motors did most of the work. After releasing the top latches and unzipping the rear window, a T-bird driver could sit in the comfort of his or her bucket seat and watch the action!

The 1960 Thunderbird would retain its title as the best selling model year until 1977.
