To quote Scott McGilvary from his 1991 EarlyBird article, "Many of us have
purchased the factory invoices for our cars. Having them gives us a sense
of completeness. We have information that legitimizes our cars. With it we
can say with certainty that it came that way from the factory."
Almost 60 years ago, members of CTCIís Chapter 5, The American Road
Thunderbird Club, saved as many of the original invoices as they could from
being sent to Ford Motor Companyís shredder.
As a result of their efforts, we have Thunderbird invoices for the 1955
models after serial number 232214 and substantially all of the 1956 and
1957 models available for CTCI members to purchase.
Any request received without the items above will be returned to the
requestor until all of the items are available.
PLEASE NOTE: A CTCI-appointed volunteer team is responsible for the
providing the invoices. They are the only ones with access to the invoice
files. As a result, CTCIís day-to-day office staff cannot answer any
questions about specific invoices. If you are interested in obtaining a
copy of your vehicle's invoice you must submit the items listed above.
