1965 Blue Thunderbird Convertible
Watercolor, 11” x 14”, 2016
by Mary Morano
Thunderbird by Ford Motor Company made a big impression on popular culture back in 1965! The large Thunderbird Emblem and name emblazoned across the front hood of this Classic Car was the definition of cool! Ford Motor Company named this car Thunderbird, but other names that were offered up as contenders included Apache, Falcon, Eagle, Tropicale, and ThunderBOLT. I think Ford chose wisely…
The 1965 Blue Thunderbird Convertible in this Watercolor Painting has a blue metallic exterior with a black roof top. It came equipped with a 390ci 8-Cylinder gas engine with automatic transmission, so it was ready to take you places – and take you places fast! Can you imagine what it must have been like to motor down the road in this ultra cool car in 1965? Just picture the top down, the wind in your hair, and the radio blaring Dylan’s ‘Mr. Tambourine Man’ or ‘I Can’t Help Myself’ by The Four Tops. Classic!
I love blue cars, especially the light blue or the cerulean blue with a touch of ultramarine. It’s nice to see car colors that match the sky. I love convertibles too. They are so much fun! Even when it’s cold out, I like to drive with the top down!
