Question type: General

How can my 2003 Ford Thunderbird be a “50th anniversary edition” if Ford
didn’t make Thunderbirds until 1955? Mine is Thunderbird blue and has
24,500 miles. Pristine.

Thunderbirds first went on sale in September 1954. You ask a really good question. As it was Ford who called your car a 50th Anniversary Edition, ask Ford why: call or go on line and post your VIN. Only other thing I can think of is that your car is actually not a 50th Anniversary Edition and something is amuck with the badging or the paperwork.
