1975 Thunderbird Jade Luxury Group logo
Typically, the new car market slows during the Spring months. Ford was always quite adept at capturing new interest during this time with special promotions, advertising campaigns, and new model introductions. The 1963 Thunderbird Limited Edition Landau was introduced in Spring 1963, so was the 1964 1/2 Ford Mustang in Spring 1964, and the 1969 Continental Mark III in Spring 1968. To offset the sales slump in April 1975, and to commemorate the Thunderbird's 20th Anniversary, the Jade Luxury Group option was introduced...

The three exterior color combinations shown above could be paired with either of two interior trim combinations, to create a unique Jade Luxury Group look...
Jade Media Velour interior trim
Jade Media Velour interior trim (code NR) is paired with Jade Vinyl and features color-keyed components.
White Leather Seating Surfaces with Jade vinyl interior trim
White Leather Seating Surfaces with Jade Vinyl (code P5) is teamed with Jade components for a distinctively rich appearance.

Other distinctions that are part of the Jade Luxury Group include:
Normande Grain Padded Half-Vinyl Roof
Color-keyed Vinyl Clad Rear Window Moldings
Color-keyed Vinyl Roof Moldings
Silver Thunderbird Opera Window Insignia
Color-keyed Wide Bodyside Moldings
Jade Starfire Glamour or Polar White Finish
Dual Hood and Bodyside Paint Stripes
Wire Wheel Covers

Unfortunately, Ford Motor Company did not keep records of how many 1975 Thunderbirds were equipped with any of the Luxury Group options. Since they were a trim package, which did not require separate body style identification numbers, accurate production numbers are difficult to determine. However, it is believed that Thunderbirds equipped with any of the Luxury Group option packages were quite rare when new, and even more so today.
