After a 15 year hiatus, Ford revived the T-Bird in 2002 for a four year run and based its looks largely on the First Gen 1955-57. The last generation (11th) was a modest success, selling 67,518 units and with low mileage can fetch north of $20K today.
By comparison the Third Generation (1961-63) sold 214,375 units and values are all over the map, with mine towards the lower end.
