With it’s first edition in 1955, the Ford T-bird began paving the way for a new type of car. This category came to be known as a personal luxury vehicle. They were never marketed as sports cars known for their performance, though they maintained a sporty feel to their appearance, and were always painted with bright and flashy colors. Ford created these cars in direct response to the release of the Chevrolet Corvette
Even though these cars were designed to have many luxurious features, they still don’t truly cut it in comparison to modern day standards. So, this is one of our more unique products to go with one of the more unique classic cars in the Ford Thunderbird. It is similarly designed to many of the bench console models in that it simply sits on top of the bench seat and provides an arm rest, storage compartment and cup holders, however this one puts a slight twist on the overall shape.
The storage compartment is made larger to cover the whole length of the bench seat to the edge, and then dips down to create hand level cup holders for the driver and or passenger.
Driving old cars like these can be difficult in todays would because of the many differences in our day to day lives. We now carry around all sorts of electronics on a daily basis. A center console like this makes perfect sense to protect items such as MP3 players, cell phones and GPS navigation systems, while also giving us a designated location where we know they will be each time we get in or out of the vehicle.
