2001 Ford Forty Nine (Ghia)
Influenced by the classic 1949-1951 Ford, the Forty-Nine coupe concept also had the chopped and channeled look on customized cars from that era. The Forty-Nine featured rounded high intensity discharge and projector-beam front lighting, sleek, narrow, wrap-around LED taillights, and a roof with an all-glass upper structure. Inside, a raised console ran down the middle between the 4-bucket seats, and in front of the driver was a classic single-dial gauge cluster. "Powered by Thunderbird" badge on the side announced that a T-Bird 3.9-liter DOHC V-8 in the engine bay was tuned to fit the car"s appearance and refined muscle.
