They built 4 door t-birds from 1967 to 1982... that is what spoiled them.

I feel like such a idiot for getting RID of that gas guzzler, i kick myself all the time when i think that when i was 25 i OWNED that very 1970 T-Bird 4 door landeau i was in my late teens. i traded it off for a toyota corolla. at the time i told the car dealer that a large metal flake paint job (like on hot boats) would look cool .... AND THEY DID JUST that...dam that looked very impressive....... still looking for it :(

Google Thunderbird production numbers and you will see 4 doors were available from 1967 thru 1971 This site even included picture with four doors. Unless they made 2 door with 2 handles on each side :-) I own a 1970 Hardtop 2 door with buckets seats. Mine is one of the lowest prodution models because of the hardtop with bucket seats but you can see all of the production numbers listed here. http://automotivemileposts.com/prod1967tbird.html http://automotivemileposts.com/prod1968tbird.html http://automotivemileposts.com/prod1969tbird.html http://automotivemileposts.com/prod1970tbird.html http://automotivemileposts.com/prod1971tbird.html Here a 1967 with 4 doors

Everyone was right and wrong at the same time.their was only a small set number of 4door birds made each year through 67-72,yes i said 72.the 67 came with a 390,68-72 a 390 with the 429 thunder jet option, the cockpit was designed around a jet cockpit with in some cases had the tilt steering wheel the also tilted to the right to allow ease when getting in and out.

Those are mostly wrong answers. 4-door birds were built from '67-71...not 72. In 70 and 71, the only engine was the 429. 67-69 had flip-up headlights. The 70-71 was a mildly revised version of the 67-69--it had a pointed nose, no flip-up headlights, and a mildly revised tail light section. The blinkers were sequential in the rear, on all 67-71 models. In 1970, there were 8401 4 door Tbirds built. I have one of the 18 light ivy yellow 4-door tbirds with a white vinyl roof and white interior.

I had a 1970 Jade Green Thunderbird 4 door with the suicide doors. Like an idiot, I traded it. There was nothing wrong with it at all. It had the four power windows, power seats, the horn was a wrap around inside the steering wheel that you could blow anywhere around the wheel. I can't remember why I traded it. I could kick myself.

Too many four door birds were left for scrap. I am about finished with my 1970.....got a 1971 donor car in the garage.....sad it had to be a donor but parts are HARD to find. It would make a good rat rod type....

They made 4 door T-Bird's 1967 thru 1971 but the 67 thru 69 is a flat nose hide a way head lights and the 70 and 71 have what I call a beak and all had suicide doors. The pitcher is my 70 T-Bird 4 door.

The big question is how many is still out there??

Good question.......not sure how one would find out?

I'm absolutely amazed on how this guy thinks he knows cars..... Thunderbird came in an optional 4 door (suicide doors) from 1967 through 1971....
