1955 Ford Thunderbird - Utah Showroom
1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Hard Top
Ford unveiled the Thunderbird at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. The first production car came off the line on September 9, 1954, and went on sale on October 22, 1954 as a 1955 model, and sold briskly; 3,500 orders were placed in the first ten days of sale. While only 10,000 were planned, 16,155 were sold in 1955.
As standard, the 1955 Ford Thunderbird included a removable fiberglass top; a fabric convertible top was an option, although commonly specified. The engine was a 292 Y-block V8, which got 18MPG. The car had fender skirts. The exhaust pipes exited through twin bumper guards, which are bolted to the rear bumper.
This "Early Bird" has been fully restored to showroom condition. It is powered by the 292 cid Thunderbird V-8 and is mated to a 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive. It has power windows and seat and Kelsey-Hayes wire wheels.
