 Vehicle Description
For sale in our Chicago showroom is a very original 1955 Ford Thunderbird that is a true survivor in every sense of the word. The Thunderbird which was first unveiled to the public on February 20, 1954 at the Detroit Auto Show created a new market segment of a "Personal Luxury Car" and went on to steal the hearts and smiles of many motorists.
As the Corvette had a similar roadster style it was marketed as more of a sports car and most early models were absent of many options that the American public was starting to appreciate for the sake of comfort and convenience. This little 'bird has options that were almost unheard of at the time and some particular rare options as well including the 3-speed transmission with Overdrive, a port-hole (detachable) glass-fibre hardtop, power windows, power steering, power brakes, AM radio, a telescoping wheel and even a power seat. One very noticeable feature is the twin spotlights that were actually a dealer installed option and are fully operational.
This T-Bird has a great history having been purchased from the original owner in the California desert in the 1970's and driven back to Illinois. Not only has the vehicle been very well maintained in a climate controlled building since being purchased but it is one of the nicest preserved, original cars you are likely to see.
In order to make sure this car is ready to be put back on the road the following work and maintenance has been completed: New brake shoes, master and wheel cylinders, brake hoses, adjuster kits, rear axles seals, transmission seals and gaskets and sway bar link bushings were installed. New battery cables were installed, the carburetor was overhauled, a full tune up completed and the water pump replaced. Also all of the engine fluids and the transmission fluid was changed making this car ready for the open road.
Under the hood you will see the original 292 cubic inch V8 that is a perfect mate to the 3 speed floor shift transmission with overdrive that is great for gas mileage on the highway. If you like the historical significance of vehicles from the past, have a passion for nostalgia and desire only the highest quality in preserved original cars, this one is for you!
Located in our Chicago showroom, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird can be seen including an HD video and pictures at For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email
