|Beginning in 1972, the optional Glamour Paint finishes became more predominant.
For instance, in 1971 there were just 4 optional paint colors offered,
and in 1972 the total doubled to 8 different colors. The price also jumped
about $30 as well. By 1975, almost half of the colors offered on the Thunderbird
would be optional Starfire colors, as it was called at that point in time.
This is an important option to look for and consider when purchasing a classic car. And color can make a difference in value, as well. Rare and unusual colors are beginning to be noticed in collector circles. Period colors, or colors that identify the era the car is from are making a comeback. Consider the new Mustangs offered in Lime Gold, which seem to be everywhere today. A few years ago, Lime Gold was not considered such a hot color on an older car, and now more people are seeking them out.
