1962 Ford Thunderbird Convertible- The Twilight Zone

This was actually a "Sports Roadster" model with the tonneau cover removed. This was an early production Thunderbird that was later recalled to the dealer due to the problem with the Wire Wheels. After a failure of three of the four wheels on Elvis Presley's Rangoon Red Sports Roadster, and other wheel failures, Ford recalled all the Sports Roadster models. They temporarily replaced the wheels with stock steel wheels and wheel covers until a suitable replacement could be fitted. The early Kelsey Hayes wheels were recalled, and newer designed wheels with more spokes were added. This shot was from an episode of the Twilight Zone called "Showdown with Rance McGrew" starring Larry Blyden. Season 3, Episode 20, original air date February 2, 1962.
