1959 Ford Thunderbird -Oregon Showroom
1959 Ford Thunderbird - Newberg Showroom
This mostly original Thunderbird is powered by the new-for-1959 "J" code 430 cid V-8. It has a newly rebuilt Cruise-O-Matic transmission and a correct re-spray 18 years ago. It features power windows and seats, as well as power steering and brakes.
With 37,892 sold in 1958—outselling the previous model year by well over 16,000 units—the new Thunderbird began a sales momentum previously unseen with the car. It was also history-making, becoming the first individual model line (as opposed to an entire company) to earn Motor Trend "Car of the Year" honors.[With little more than a new grille and a newly optional, 350 horsepower 430 cu in V8 for 1959, sales climbed even higher to 67,456.
