Bob Palmer's 1955 Ford
1955 Ford Thunderbird restyled by Clarkaiser Custom Shop for Bob Palmer in 1955. The car, named the "Golden Bird" was shown at the Ford Rotunda in the spring of 1956, and at the Detroit Autorama in the late 1950s. Don Morton has owned the Goldenbird since the late 1950s.
In 2010 the Goldenbird was hand picked to be part of the prestigious Customs Then and Now exhibit at the 2011 Grand National Roadster Show in Pomona, California, an elite gathering of the most historically significant customs in the world. Goldenbird was the only car at the show representing Ron Clark and Bob Kaiser of the Clarkaiser Custom Shop.
