I think it's more the history resp. the way Ford reacted back then that made the car symbolic than the product itself. That said, at some point every car gets a classic, and sometimes being a decidedly subar car resulting in being very rare can drive prices up considerably after a while.
Also, a nice 1963 T-Bird (my favorite MY) should be worth a considerable amount IMO
