Classic Car Overview

The Ford Thunderbird hit the market in 1955 in was a direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette. While the Corvette aimed to impress with performance, the T-bird was all about style and substance. Dubbed the first personal car by Ford, it was described as a direct descendant of the bespoke 1930s roadsters and was aimed as a brisk grand tourer. It was light for its era and the powerful V8 could propel it to around 120 mph. The 1955 model featured the proven 292cid Y-block V8 and had bumper mounted exhausts and a trunk mounted spare tire.





The 1955 Ford Thunderbird offered here has been in the hands of the current owner for the last 25 plus years. It remains in highly original condition. The car is powered by its 292V8 engine fed through an upgraded carb with electric choke. Power is transferred to the rear wheels via its automatic transmission. The car has been repainted many years ago in its original factory color, Sky Haze Green over two tone turquoise and white interior. The interior remains highly original featuring original dash, original radio (Non working), original steering wheel and horn ring ets.

Mechanically, the car starts right up and drives with ease. The seller indicates that the transmission was rebuilt two years ago by Mastershift in Grand Rapids, MI.



First Generation Thunderbirds are an American icon and on the must have list for any car enthusiast. The car here, although not concours, offers many options for the new owner. Enjoy the way it is, or refurbish it to another level. The price offered here leaves room for all options.
