Not a joy jumper when it comes to both Baby or Square Bird cars.
With greater sales for the Square Bird over the Baby bird its easy to come to the realization that Ford took from 1955 to 1957 to get the idea right of a personal luxury car.

The two Mercury's look to be my favorites out of this selection followed by the Lincoln Premier and the two Fairlane's bringing up the rear. The Continental snuggles up in there somewhere too. If the paint shade was, say, white, the Continental would be at poll.

Merci. I sure like the color too. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.
Obviously, this Go-Cart wasn't as popular as some seem to think. For 58, the real T-Bird showed up. (EOM) by George Schire #42247.4.3
I love Baby Birds and I don't care what others think or say. (EOM) by John Bono #42247.4.3.1
George I disagree totally as I LOVE the '55 & '57....however sales by Jack Dodds #42247.4.3.2
The 58 T Bird should have been called something else in my view... by John Roberts #42247.
Correct, '58 through '60 are referred to as Square Birds. (EOM) by John Bono #42247.
Oops, I just realized the black T-Bird was included. (EOM) by John Bono #42247.4.4
Easy mistake John. It's easy to miss a 1:24 scale car when it's on the road. (EOM) by George Schire #42247.4.4.1
See post #42247.4.3.1 (EOM) by John Bono #42247.
That's it George....I'm calling the Baby Bird Bashers hot line! (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.
Skirts by dennis Brown #42247.5
I prefer the Lincoln with skirts but not the rest. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.5.1
I guess when skirts are removed things become more interesting (EOM) by John Roberts #42247.5.1.1
Yes I agree, John, it's a promising stage in the arrangement - if memory serves;). (EOM) by Bruce Gibbins #42247.
One of my favorite years as well, with the exception of the Lincoln which doesn't do much for me. (EOM) by Duncan Pohl #42247.6
All beauties! (EOM) by John Bono #42247.7
Not a joy jumper when it comes to both Baby or Square Bird cars. by Bruce Gibbins #42247.8
Ford built the first T-Bird to compete with Corvette. Then they correctly by Jack Dodds #42247.8.1
I love black cars, but for some reason the black '56 Crown Victoria doesn't set well with me. (EOM) by Frank Kocour #42247.9
Me too. Its pretty but any 2-tone application on that car is just the best. (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.9.1
These cars were designed for two-tone (style-tone) and look best that way. (EOM) by John Bono #42247.9.1.1
Peacock blue & white for me! (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.

Gorgeous...would love to have it. Thanks! (EOM) by Jack Dodds #42247.
To me it's because it's the only one without skirts. (EOM) by dennis Brown #42247.9.2
