Don’t know the year of your Thunderbird or how to identify it? This will help you figure out the year of your classic car by the specific exterior parts and markings. There are typically two different body types per year, the convertible and the hardtop, although some years have Landaus, Town Coupes, and Roadsters. The easiest way to identify your car is to check the VIN located either on the door jamb (1958–62) or the door (1963–66).
