Exterior Paint Colors
|Whatever happened to individuality?
This: Thunderbird 1971.
Note the two individually different roof lines for the two door models...blind quarter roof for the Landau model shown at right, and the Sportsroof-style for the Hardtop, below.
Luxury or sport...only Thunderbird 1971 gives you the choice!
