A full width front seat became standard issue on the 1968 Thunderbird, and at mid-year, so did the 429 Thunder Jet V-8 engine. This was the
most powerful engine to ever find its way under the hood of a Thunderbird,
and would remain standard for the next 5 years. In 1968, the T-Bird was
the only personal luxury car that offered a choice of body styles, as well
as interior seating arrangements.
New options for 1968 include the very rarely seen Rear Lamp Monitor, which
used fiber optic tubes to transmit light from the rear tail lamp bulb to
a unit mounted on the rear package tray, visible through the rear view
mirror on the windshield. It was only offered in 1968 and 1969. A complete
list of '68 T-Bird options with pricing can be found at 1968 Ford Thunderbird Optional Equipment.
