1956 Thunderbird w/Continental Kit by 

The Thunderbird was very successful in its inaugural year of 1955. In fact it outsold the Corvette by more than 23-to-1. With the Thunderbird considered a success, few changes were made to the car for 1956. The most notable change was moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper in order to make more storage room in the trunk, and an optional porthole in the removable roof was offered. However, the addition of the weight at the rear caused steering issues. The spare was moved back to the trunk in 1957 when the trunk was restyled and made slightly larger.
