Classic Car Overview

Collectible Motor Car of Atlanta is proud to offer this fantastic 1955 Ford Thunderbird. The first-generation Thunderbird was produced from 1955-57, but the brand remained in production to 1997, then re-introduced from 2002 to 2005 creating 11 distinct generations. Ford positioned the Thunderbird as an upscale model and it was credited in developing a new market segment, the personal luxury car. The Ford Thunderbird was introduced in February 1953 as a response to Chevrolets new sports car, the Corvette. But unlike the Corvette, it was not marketed as a sports car. Though sharing some design characteristics with other Fords of the time, such as single, circular headlamps and tail lamps and modest tailfins, the Thunderbird was sleeker in shape and featured a hood scoop and a 150 mph speedometer not available on other Fords. It was a two-seat design available with a detachable glass-fiber hardtop and a folding fabric top (both included here). This 1955 Ford Thunderbird looks stunning finished in Thunderbird Blue (Turquoise, code T ) over Turquoise/ White (code C ) interior. The fender skirts sitting over the wide whitewall tires is Americana at its finest. And take note of the rare chrome eyebrow headlight covers. The interior is just amazing with at-the-time luxury including power window lifts, 4-way power seat, Astra-Dial full instrumentation panel, telescopic Lifeguard steering wheel, factory tachometer, directional signals, Magicare heating/ defrost system, and Delux Town & Country power radio (also includes a hidden AM/FM/CD/ Bluetooth upgraded sound system with remote). The electric clock is functional. The cigar lighter is unused. Under the hood sits a super-sanitary 292c.i. V8 with an upgraded carb. It also has a new upgraded electronic fuel pump for reliability. The engine is backed by a smooth automatic transmission. The T-Bird includes the original owners manual and jack. This car has been meticulously owned and is a consistent show winner in the Atlanta, GA area, now available for sale. Dont miss this opportunity to own a splendid piece of automotive history.
