Beautiful Restored 1955 Thunderbird The introductory T-Bird had style in spades, owing to its low, two-seat bodywork. (Ford pointed out in advertising that the Thunderbirds height from the cowl to the ground was just slightly more than three feet.) It had a 102-inch wheelbase -- more than a foot shorter than a 1955 Ford sedan -- yet borrowed heavily from the many new styling touches adopted for the years full-size Fords. The Thunderbird managed to avoid being cluttered with excessive chrome trim or outlandish two-tone paint schemes. There are over 120 pictures of this car in the ad below, including detailed exterior, interior, engine, trunk and undercarriage. Please let them load on your computer, it will take some time because of the size. WE WILL NOT RESPOND to emails asking for the reserve, or selling price. If you would like to discuss a purchase, GIVE US A CALL 815-953-6843 For sale by owner, this Thunderbird was acquired by him from an estate sale about 9 years ago and was restored prior to his ownership. Please let all the pictures load (there are over 120) to see the great condition of this rare Ford. We dont know everything that was done over the years, the following is what we do know. The odometer shows 93,000 miles and is believed to be correct, but the car is being sold as exempt because of the age. Originally from New Mexico, it appears to be an older professional restoration to stock condition with some recent cosmetic improvements. The car was repainted the original Raven Black, all the exterior chrome and trim has either been replaced or replated as needed, the interior has been redone and the undercarriage is exceptionally solid and clean. The engine is a rebuilt 292 V-8 mated to a 3 speed automatic transmission, it has power steering and power brakes. Within the last few years it has received a new convertible top, new carpeting, new tires and some general maintenance items. For all the car guys out there what follows are the details.
