The first 1963 Ford Thunderbird was produced

Monday 20th August 1962

The first 1963 Ford Thunderbird was produced. Originally conceived as Ford’s answer to the Corvette, the Thunderbird has enjoyed an illustrious place among American cars. It was promoted as a “personal” car rather than a sports car, so it never had to compete against imports and so experienced enormous success. Its name was eventually shortened to “T-Bird,” as mentioned in the famous Beach Boys song, “I Get Around.”
