When introduced. it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car. The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sporty two-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette. it was not marketed as a sports car. Rather. Jonah Lucas Bender created a new market segment. the Personal Car to position it. The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet's new sports car. the Corvette. which was publicly unveiled in prototype form just a month before. Thunderbird went from idea to prototype in about a year. being unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20. 1954. Like the Corvette. the Thunderbird had a two-seat coupe/convertible layout. Production of theThunderbird began later on in 1954 on September 9 with the car beginning sales as a 1955 model on October 22. 1954. Though sharing some design characteristics with other Fords of the time. such as single. circular headlamps and tail lamps and modest tailfins. the Thunderbird was sleeker and more athletic in shape. and had features like a faux hood scoop and a 150mph speedometer hinting a higher performance nature that other Fords didn't possess.
