Pics: Today’s delivery: A ‘Bird in the hand is worth...

well...

two in the box.


For Christmas Santa left under the tree Brooklin’s 1982 CTCI Buckskin Tan ‘56 Thunderbird, a car I have desired for 36 years. There was another CTCI Special Edition that I have long wanted to acquire, the 1992 CTCI set of two cars, a Golden Glow Yellow ‘56 and a Raven Black ‘55 Thunderbird. Too late to put it on my list for Santa, I discovered two sets available on the planet earth as these do not come on the market often. After Christmas Day, having watched it daily, I hit the “buy it now” tab and today came the package containing these two beautiful Thunderbirds thus completing my set of special edition ‘55-56 small ‘Birds as the ‘55-57 2-seater Thunderbirds are sometimes called.

Yes, these models lack the chrome detail of today’s Brooklins and no, I will not be altering their original condition by adding any chrome trim. Will post some pictures of these cars in a day or so. The Raven Black ‘55 is especially rare as it was the only ‘55 Thunderbird Brooklin ever issued.
