The 61 Thunderbird was virtually a new car except for it’s 390-cubic-inch V-8 engine and the classic Cruse-O-Matic automatic transmission. Overall dimensions were 205 inches long, 52 1/2 inch high and a 113 inch wheel base. This was the appearance of the “torpedo” and a roomier interior even tho it was still described as a four passenger car.
