Ford Thunderbird was designed to be a personal luxury sport car. Through the years it was used to introduce many innovative items and styling cues. One of those items was sequential turn signals, flashing the individual segments of the broad, horizontal tail lights in sequences from inside to outside to indicate a turn.  What year was the introduction of this innovative design?    1965

The Comet was originally conceived as a member of the  Edsel lineup, and as such, carried very strong Edsel cues. It was reassigned to Mercury dealerships after the demise of the Edsel marque, where it was marketed as a standalone product. It was initially released without any divisional badging, only "Comet" badges, and would not be branded as a Mercury for two more years. What was the first production year of the Comet?
