1955 Ford Thunderbird --

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this stunning 1955 Ford Thunderbird for your consideration. This T-Bird comes finished in a Black exterior with a Black soft top over a Black and White interior. The restoration on this T-Bird was completed a few years back and shows exceptionally well inside and out. The engine is a Ford 292 cubic inch V8 with 2-speed automatic transmission that starts right up and shifts smoothly. The current owner purchased this vehicle 15 years... back and has taken great care of it throughout his ownership; he also recently added a power front and rear disc brake setup. With all of the drivability intact and all of the looks you hope to find in a first generation T-Bird, this is one that you do not want to miss! Please call or email us today for more information. Ford was looking for something to compete with the Chevrolet Corvette which started to show quickly as a popular segment but didn't 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.
