Ford Thunderbird Continental Kit

"We’d take the convertible and with the top down, we’d go sailing along the highway. We both liked to feel the wind in our faces...", Amy Greene, friend of Marilyn Monroe.

Photographer Milton Greene offered the Ford Thunderbird Continental Kit to Marilyn Monroe as a Christmas present. Through the vision and ambition of Henry Ford II, this rare model came into being.

Low-slung, sleek and marvellously well balanced, the Ford Thunderbird can stand its own against other English, French and Italian counterparts. Marylin Monroe, a fanatic of fast cars, adored the purity of its lines and thus chose it as her wedding car upon her betrothal to Arthur Miller.
