marilyn monroe t bird

Post by jatkinson » Tue Sep 03, 2019 2:40 pm

We were at a car show on the weekend and got talking to a guy that said he had a 2005 Marilyn Edition T Bird. The car was not at the show so I didnt see it. He said it was a special colour and had her name embroidered in the seats and other markings on the car. Said he had lots of documentation. Just wondering if anyone has seen or heard of one of these? Thanks

Not produced or marketed by Ford that I'm aware of. Sounds like a post-sale customized car to me. "Bravo Sierra" unless proven otherwise.

For the record, Ford produced limited edition models during the Retrobird era, one per model year. First was the Neiman-Marcus '02s, then the "007"/Die Another Day movie edition in '03, the Pacific Coast Roadster edition in '04, and finally the 50th Anniversary edition in '05. If others came out from Ford, trust me - we would have known at that time.
