From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.

Classic Car Overview

Ford was looking for something to compete with the Chevrolet Corvette which started to show quickly as a popular segment but didnt want to pursue the sports car necessary but created a segment all of its own. With the clever marketing plan in place, Ford began the production of the Ford Thunderbird in 1955 as a Personal Car segment and although it was very much a sporty two-seater convertible just like the Corvette, it paid more attention to luxury and comfort more so than the competition. This model did not inherit its second row of seats until 1958 and from there it slowly but surely grew in size, generation after generation until 1977 when the larger cars lost their popularity in the market. The Thunderbird was one of the longest lasting nametags for Ford and started strong by selling 23 models for every one Corvette sold when it first hit the market. The only changes completed between its inception model to the 1956 was moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper in order to make more room within the trunk.





GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this stunning 1956 Ford Thunderbird for consideration. The car was sold new at Tenvoorde Motor Company in St. Cloud, Minnesota on January 25, 1956. The car comes with a copy of the original sales statement. The car eventually made its way to California and then here to Michigan. The current owner has had the car for the last 12 years. The car was restored in 1986 by Garys T-Bird Restoration and still remains in stunning condition. According to the owner the engine was also rebuilt. The car rides on wide white walls mounted on factory steel wheels that are painted the same color as the body. Other highlights include continental kit and beautiful chrome, 4 way power seats and highly detailed engine compartment. The car is beautiful both inside and out.
