Classic Car Overview
1955 Ford Thunderbird
Classic and Timeless Design. This 1955 Thunderbird is a very well-preserved example of the iconic American roadster, it also has matching hardtop. This example is the product of an excellent restoration and has been lovingly and expertly cared for ever since. The restoration was undertaken with an eye to keeping this T-Bird as close as possible to the way it rolled off the assembly line in early 1955. The body shows excellent panels gaps and fit, all of the brightwork has been refinished or replated, and the car even rides on wide white wall tires with chrome wire wheels. This T-bird has a fabulous look.
The engine bay is also restored to new-stock condition, with an eye toward originality throughout. The interior presents at a very high level, with finishings, gauges, knobs and controls all in excellent condition. This roadster also has rare clock and AM radio. Features and details that are unique to the early 55 Thunderbirds include Ford crest and crossed flag emblems, Flat 2-spoke steering wheel with clear plastic spokes and domed hub. No front fender vents, Chrome "doughnut" exhaust ring (early production cars only), Wedge-shaped heater knobs. No vent windows.
Fords Thunderbird created to act as a retort to the Chevrolet Corvette, but rather than becoming a rival to the European sports cars imported into the United States, Ford created a completely new market segment around the Thunderbird, the personal luxury car. While a performance car in its own right, the Thunderbird focused more on comfort than speed. A total of 53,166 units were produced for the three model years 1955-1957, with only 16,155 made in 1955.
