The 1969 Thunderbird paint finish was remarkable. Each body was electrically charged with a positive charge at the factory, then completely immersed in a tank of primer that had been negatively charged, permitting a uniform coating of primer on all surfaces. This exceptionally even coverage of primer contributed to a final finish that was smooth, brilliant, and long lasting.

An additional sprayed on primer coat was applied prior to three baked-on coats of pigmented Super Diamond Lustre Acrylic Enamel Paint to produce a high-luster finish that was almost maintenance free.
