1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Frame-off restored to a very authentic standard. 8. 80 miles since! Fitted with PS. PB. PW. P seat and aftermarket AC. Finished in its factory correct colors and splendid out in the sun! Introduced in 1955. Ford’s Thunderbird was arguably a response to Chevrolet’s Corvette that dazzled the country in 1953. Although instead on competing directly in the sports car market. Ford instead strived to steal attention and launched the car in a new niche category. the “Personal Luxury Car”. These cars were. from the beginning. intended not for practicality but rather for function-follows-form touring. These buyers were wealthy and demanded the style. options and easy of drivability of the best cars on the road but with no sacrifice to comfort or reliability. As a result. it was customary to find cushioned rides and big V8 power plants. with automatic transmissions. air conditioning and full power accessories as optional equipment. None did this better than the original 1955-57 “Baby bird” that remains a style icon almost 60 years later! We are incredibly excited to offer this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible! Stunning does not begin to describe the shade of Goldenrod Yellow on this car; it is truly something that must be seen in person to be appreciated to the fullest! Complementing the exterior is a black cloth soft top and matching black and yellow vinyl interior that is also correct to the car! This car is fitted with great options such as power steering. power brakes. 4-way power seat. AM/FM/cassette radio. fender skirts. rubber Thunderbird floor mats. power windows and retrofitted air conditioning! The car rides on Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels with Goodyear Super Cushion Deluxe 4-ply wide whitewall tires measuring 6. 70-15 all around. This beautiful frame-off restored Thunderbird was finished several years ago and has covered less than 9. 00 miles since! The chassis stamp matches the VIN and the paint. chrome. interior and undercarriage can all be described as excellent. This car was completed with a very watchful eye to detail; nearly everything on every surface has a gloss or semi-gloss finish. Originality was the priority and as a result. the car will impress T-Bird enthusiasts all the while enabling the driver to enjoy the convenience of modern AC and the added benefits of a 12 Volt conversion. The engine bay is highly detailed and hoses. gaskets and even the windshield washer bag have been replaced for new. Underneath. the polished frame is complemented with many new front suspension components. new brakes lines. new steering assembly. gas tank. rear leaf springs and shocks. body mount hardware and more! We have struggled to find criticism with the car and are sure the next owner will feel the same way. For someone looking for a factory-correct Goldenrod Yellow ’55 T-Bird. it will be hard to beat this one! Driven extensively and recently gone through. it is quite literally ready for anything! We would be more than happy to discuss the car further; please don’t hesitate to call! Thanks for looking!
