Whatever happened to individuality?

This...the 1971 Thunderbird

The 1971 Ford Thunderbird would be the last of its kind. The elegant and distinctive Four Door Landau would not return for 1972, nor would the Landau designation for the Two Door model. The 1971 Thunderbird is often overlooked, as the changes from 1970 were minor. Fewer Thunderbirds were built in '71 than in any other year since 1958, so they're a rare sight today.

This series was the most dependable, best driving and performing Thunderbird to date. Perhaps Ford's decision to discontinue the slow-selling Four Door Landau was premature, as Cadillac's "international-sized" Seville was about to make a big hit with luxury car buyers in just a few short years. Whatever happened to individuality? With 3 models, 3 different rooflines, and several seating arrangements to choose from, it was certainly alive and well in the 1971 Thunderbird!
