Thunderbird 1955

Title Status --

Interior Color White


You're looking at a 1955 Ford Thunderbird roadster that takes all the great lines of this icon's first year and then adds a few subtle upgrades to ensure it remains unique. Best of all, this total package is both attractive and affordable.

The distinction of this one starts with the paint. Thunderbird Blue was a one-year-only color, and so it's great to have a first-ever T-bird in a hue that instantly identifies it as the year that launched the legend. We're told this was even resprayed around 2008 as part of a comprehensive restoration. It ensures the presentation is clean, complete, and brilliant. And speaking of brilliance the grille, bumpers, hood scoop trim, windshield, and wire wheel covers are all part of a glowing brightwork package. This T-bird has all the best classic pieces, like the rear fender skirts and the exhaust routed through the rear bumper trim. Plus, there are unique touches that add elegance, like the green and white pinstripes that highlight the crease in the profile. And you may have noticed that the green also matches the special color of the hardtop.

If you like the way the pinstripe coordinates with the hardtop, then you're going to love the interior. The exterior green returns on the dash, and the pinstripe's white goes with the inserts in the seat and doors. Plus, the exterior blue coordinates with the turquoise upholstery. The result is a thoughtful color combo inside and out that reminds you this is a premium classic. In fact, you even have the premium power seat feature! You'll love the clean and authentic look inside everywhere from the plush carpeting to the machine-turned insert that flows across the dash. And this one is a Thunderbird that should really appeal to drivers. The full gauge package means a working tach, and that goes well with the floor shifter. And the auxiliary readout trio easily lets you keep a full eye on what's going on under the hood.

Under the hood is the "Thunderbird Special" 292 cubic inch V8 which purrs sweetly through an authentic dual exhaust system. Bright red engine paint was a Thunderbird design statement, along with the bright chrome air cleaner and gorgeous cast aluminum valve covers that were part of a dress-up kit. You can tell there has been a solid investment in this motor, and so you'll happily showcase it wherever you park this classic. An updated Holley four-barrel carb with a one-inch spacer helps this V8 really have a powerful presence, and the upgrade to a four-speed manual transmission puts you in firm control of it all. And while this is a fun driver's car that wants to let you feel the road, it also settles into the role of a nice and comfortable cruiser.

You're looking at a restored American icon that has a bit more unique and sporty flair than the others you see out there. Call today!!!
