Hi there,

In regards to 1970 Thunderbolts (as that's what any Thunderbolt made after September 1969 counts as) my records have it that they made 3,643 in total.

In December 1969 they only came off the production line for two of the four weeks. It was Lightnings and (oddly) mainly Royal Stars that month.

They made 25 Thunderbolts in the week ending 12th December, and 225 in the week ending 19th December, but you'd have to consult the original factory records to track your particular machine down.

Cheers

Pete

I have slightly different figures. 1,273 Firebirds in 1971. 115 in 1972. That 115 were in the 2nd week of August, after the summer factory shut down, so that is '1972' season for production purposes. So I'd also presume with the black frame, rather than grey? I don't know the US/UK break-down, but obviously the vast majority (90%+?) would have been for the States.

Cheers

Pete
