Ford Elite. Research Magazine Advertisements. The Best Resource on the Net of Vintage Ads! (1975) The tradition of Thunderbird at a mid-size price. Elite's success was even more than we expected. And for good reasons. You'd be hard to find a personal luxury car that's built in the Thunderbird Tradition, and has standard driving conveniences like a 351 CID V-8, power steering, power front disc brakes, SelectShift transmission and steel-belted radial ply tires. Shown with optional WSW tires, deluxe bumper group, power-operated glass Moonroof, and deep dish aliminum wheels. The Ford Elite was an automobile produced by the Ford Motor Company for the North American market from 1974 to 1976. The Elite was based on the Ford Torino, and was a two-door coupe intended to be, in the words of Ford's advertising, a "mid-size car in the Thunderbird tradition"—a more affordable personal luxury car than the Thunderbird, intended to compete with such cars as the Chevrolet Monte Carlo and the Chrysler Cordoba. It was essentially the concurrent Mercury Cougar XR-7 with a mild front end restyle. The Elite name was dropped after 1976 because the Ford range was being restructured and downsized. The Thunderbird was dramatically reduced in size and price for 1977, moving to the LTD II platform that replaced the Torino. In effect, the Elite continued under the more-recognized Thunderbird name, with the larger car being discontinued.
