1970 Ford Thunderbird Overview       

The 1970 Ford Thunderbird was the next-to-last of the 'Glamour Bird' model years. before the 1972 redesign made the sleek muscle car bigger and bulkier. Changes for the 1970 model year were minimal.

A front-end redesign was the most significant cosmetic tweak to happen to the T-Bird between 1969 and 1970; a little origami to the grille made for a distinctive 'v-shaped' front end. The combination of the recessed headlights and the v-grille gave the '70 Thunderbird a look all its own.

Under the hood. the '70 Ford Thunderbird was a performance powerhouse. with a 7. 0 liter V-8 engine that delivered 360 horsepower. and accelerated from zero to 60 in just 9 seconds. Drag racers loved it!

Hindsight is 20/20. and today we love this classic car. At the time. though. Ford didn't quite know how to sell its 'Glamor Bird'. The 1970 Thunderbird was available as either a two-door or four-door model. but the four-door version never caught on (perhaps the back-opening 'suicide doors' didn't help the TBird pass itself off as a family sedan?)

You'll still find plenty of these out there. but you're more likely to see them at a car show than on the streets (at least in the US; there are some wonderful old Thunderbirds still going strong over in Cuba). Anybody who's lucky enough to get their hands on one of these has a project car that most of us can only dream of.
