Car Show Calendars

One Millionth ThunderbirdEverything was special about the One Millionth Thunderbird.  Still owned by a member of the International Thunderbird Club (ITC).  There were few items left off the order sheet when this car was completed!  The deluxe hub caps had been disassembled and the inside panel under the fins was painted with the same Special  Gold paint that adorned the exterior as well as the grille and headlight openings.  The Leather Interior Code of K9 indicates White Leather trim with Tobacco appointments complements the Special Gold Paint.  The White Vinyl roof used a unique Odense Grain vinyl and the special White insert side moldings complimented the vinyl roof interior and exterior décor stripping on the sides and hood.   I think that this would make a great candidate to have a Marti Auto Works Deluxe Report completed on this car!
