The Thunderbird, or “T-Bird”, was an iconic car launched in 1955.  

Thunderbirds were produced by the Ford Motor Company, founded by Henry Ford in 1903 and based in the Detroit suburb of Dearborn, Michigan. The car was named after the legendary bird in Native American mythology known for its storm-commanding powers.

The final Thunderbird was produced in 2005, bringing an end to a model that sold 4.4 million vehicles over half a century.
