1955 Ford Thunderbird
I have owned many other old hot rods as well as old classics over the last 15 years. Each time I always say I will never do it again. It has always seemed that no matter how much was spent and how well the car was done it never drove down the street like it should. This car has proved me wrong. This is a hot rod you can drive at 90 mph down a busy interstate and feel safe and secure. If you have ever owned a hotrod or a classic before you damn sure know what I am talking about. You can also rest assured that if you are stuck in traffic on that interstate it will not overheat. How many of you have dreaded traffic of any sort in your hotrod or classic? The car was restored with this mindset.
I am not selling this car because my wife is pregnant with baby # 6 or do I need to make more room in my garage. I bought this car for one reason. It is bad ass and I thought I could make a few bucks on it. Please do not waste your time or mine with trades or stupid offers. Both will be ignored.
As you will see from the pictures it is truly flawless. Nothing was left untouched. The 430HP 392 sounds like the bad ass that it is. For tunes it has the "old/new" classic look stereo FM/cd changer and Bluetooth. Now on to the typical list you see on most auctions that is generally bullshit. All of what I am going to list can be verified by my mechanic (Green Flag Performance Magnolia TX)
