Default video material - 1960 Stainless Squarebird

hi everyone!

I stumbled on a collection of video shots of one of the 1960 stainless steel Squarebirds on Youtube. They may be found at

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hAxrCZEwMyY&NR=1

They include a shot of the car being assembled as well as a date of delivery to the Ford assembly line.

Since we are approaching the 50th Anniversary of the last Squarebirds, I thought people might find this interesting.

John

Lots of links to many of the original Tbird commercials - cool - thanks - the one with the great dane shows a '60 sunroof with air and and a trunk mounted antenna - wish we had the vin to see if it is registered. Probably very few made with all those options.

The SS car looks a little better in the sun than in the museum but SS and chrome just don't do much for me - of course I know it wasn't produced as a public offering but just a show car for the SS. IMHO the best shot of the SS car is at the coast in the sand which gives it a gold color.

Eric, I agree. The photo of any number member's cars with the chrome contrasting a first rate paint job like red or turquoise is far more striking.

This car is more a interesting historical footnote. Also, where we had a considerable discussion here that grew from the "Last Squarebird" discovery last year (see http://www.squarebirds.org/vbulletin...ight=stainless) , the photo of assembly and also the date might interest some people.

PS Ray, my apologies. While digging around in Squarebirds, I discovered that you found the same Youtube link 2 years ago!! I shoulda known!!!
