Designer Revives Ford Thunderbird with Hardtop Roadster Concept

The last time we saw the Thunderbird nameplate in Ford's lineup was in 2005, and from what we know, the Detroit automaker has no immediate plans to revive it. Nevertheless, this hasn't stopped Brazilian designer Eduardo Oliveira from coming up with a conceptual proposal for a new Ford Thunderbird model with a retractable hardtop.

Although a little rough on the edges, Eduardo's Thunderbird concept is interesting - we especially like the retro-futuristic take on the original 1954-1957 model's rear section. What do you think about the concept? Let us know in the comments section below.
