Classic Car Overview

Early Thunderbirds like this 1955 example remain some of the most collectable 50s cars and its easy to understand why. With strong-performing V8s under the hood, a dash of luxury, and style that still makes people smile over sixty years later, these are ideal cars for the collector who enjoys driving. This first-year Thunderbird truly came from the mind of artists, and you can see it in the clean line running from the headlight to the tailfin. Fit and finish are good, with doors that feel substantial and a trunk lid that fits so well that the gas filler is neatly centered in its opening. When youre a Thunderbird fan, you know to look for the extras. Items like the fender skirts and hardtop let you know this is a premium example of Fords personal luxury cruiser. But, of course, the bright work on these is the real showstopper. Its complete and mirror-like appearance looks fantastic against the black paint on places like the wide mesh grille, factory wheel covers, and the twin tailpipes poking through the rear bumper guards. And speaking of standouts, the whitewall tires are a must-have for iconic style. There are two timeless colors that go with black: red and white. So they used both for the interior. The way the two colors interweave on the seat, door panel, and dash make this a real class act. Plus, items like the tachometer, floor shift, and the machine aluminum panel that runs from door panel to door panel give this the sporty feeling that made them a Corvette rival. You even get great original pieces like the provisions for power seats and AM radio. We know youll love slipping behind the factory dual-spoke steering wheel. It gives you a clear view of the nifty speedometer thats lit from behind by a Plexiglas window viewed through the windshield. Under the hood is the Thunderbird Special 292 cubic inch V8. It has the bright chrome air cleaner and gorgeous cast aluminum valve covers that were part of a dress-up kit. The four-barrel carburetor adds plenty of power and a sweet purr to the dual exhaust. As a true personal luxury vehicle, the Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission makes driving effortless. So theres nothing stopping you from going out an enjoying this icon on the open road. Complete with owners manual, you might have thought that you could never afford your dream car, but the first person to grab this deal gets to make it a reality. Call now!
