1955 Ford Thunderbird
I have owned plenty of classic cars but this one is the most iconic and fun to drive car I have ever driven. This California car has everything you need to be cruising down the road in style and elegance.You can spend more for a trailer queen, but the real appeal in the early T-Bird is getting in and having an adventure. It's what sold them when they were new and their V8 power and comfortable suspension make them outstanding road trip candidates. When they're painted Thunderbird Blue (looks more Green to me but okay) they have a timeless appeal that looks right and never goes out of style. As I said, the work is a few years old, but it's holding up quite well thanks to quality work and excellent care since it was completed. For many, the simplicity of the first-year Thunderbird is immensely appealing, and the even gaps and straight panels on this one certainly emphasize the clean design. Interestingly enough, fender skirts were optional, and this one comes with them. However, as a product of the '50s, there's still plenty of bright work that was thoroughly restored with the rest of the car. It's not perfect, but it's extremely nice throughout with nothing jumping out as either too old or too nice.
It also has black and white interior that adds plenty of flash, but in a traditional stock Thunderbird style. The interior is quite stylish, with a power bench seat that loosely emulates a pair of buckets, and it's quite good overall. The instrument panel shows off the "anything goes" optimism of the 1950s, with a wide band of bright engine-turned metal, a speedometer back lit by a clear Plexiglas panel, and a tachometer, all of which are in good condition with clear markings. The original AM radio was replaced with a classic looking AM-FM with phone/MP3 hook up. The trunk is detailed and outfitted with a correct mat.
