1955 Ford Thunderbird

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird has the clean look of a restored bright white icon. So if you like distinguished vintage motoring, read on.
A bright white absolutely the way to go when looking at a first-year T-bird. This is the car that launched the legend, and so the Colonial White just feels as collectable as a porcelain award. This one really gets correct all the details you love. After all, 1955 has the cool bumper setup where the front had a dual bullet look, and the rear mirrored the style while holding the dual exhaust tips. Plus, the hood scoop, sporty side louvers, wire wheel covers, whitewalls, fender skirts, and jet-inspired tailfin are all part of the style that makes this an icon. That's why we're so glad to see it looking so crisp and clean. In fact, the story we're told is that it was restored by a Ford engineer and was in long term storage. The consignor purchased this car about a dozen years ago, and we have thousands $$$$ in receipts over that time documenting the investment in this Thunderbird. So this car's story is about a careful restoration, preservation, and maintenance.
The color-matched hardtop is pure elegance, and the sale even comes with full provisions for a black folding roof. But really setup you're going to love the most is with no roof at all. That's because the white returns inside as an accent color to the bold red. The seat, carpeting, door panels, and dash all have the beautiful look of a nice investment. There are provisions for some desirable factory features, like the power seat and AM radio. You'll love slipping behind the artful factory steering wheel and looking at the crisp gauges. Ford really knew how to make a personal driver car with nice touches like the large tach and the speedometer that's set in a plexiglas window. And we particularly like the sporty feeling from the machine-turned panel that flows from the dash seamlessly to both doors.
Under the hood is a powerful 272 cubic-inch Ford V8 motor. It's presently with an extremely tidy look so that it has the appearance almost like stock. You'll even spot correct components, like the four-barrel carburetor, washer fluid bag, Ford hoses, pie dish air cleaner with half gasket, and optional Thunderbird valve covers. It's the kind of engine bay you can show off with pride. It also fires up readily and runs strong, so you know the quality of this V8 goes beyond just the appearance. The clean undercarriage is a reminder of the total investment in this T-bird. And the power steering, power brakes, and smooth-shifting automatic transmission keep this is a terrific cruiser.
The sale comes complete with maintenance records, a hardtop frame, and a hardtop hoist. This one has the look and features you want. So don't let this bright white first-year Thunderbird slip away. Call today!!!
