Description
 
The second year for the 1st generation T-Bird known as the Baby Bird which was produced as a 3 year body style from 1955 to 1957. Many improvements were made for the 56 model year including more powerful engine options including the addition of the 312ci engine. 56 was also the first year for the optional factory Continental Kit, Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, 12volt electrical system and more. 1956 was the lowest production year for the Baby Birds with 15,631 being produced that year, 500 less than the first year 55 and 5000 less than the 57. This car was built in Dearborn Michigan on June 8th 1956 and sold new at a dealership in Boston Massachusetts.

This T-Bird retains its factory original Y block 312ci engine (ECZ-6015c) with factory 3 speed manual transmission with overdrive & dual exhaust and original teapot 4bbl carburetor. The horsepower rating for the 312ci with 3spd manual with overdrive was 225hp. This was a real muscle car back in 1956.

The factory color of Raven Black (code A) shines beautifully as does all of its chrome & bright work. There are no dings or dents and the body is 100% rust free & super straight. The convertible top is virtually brand new. The tires are 90% or better and the Kelsey Hayes wire wheels are like new; all 5 of them!

The interior seating has been refinished in its original colors of black & white (code XA). The dash gauges are all original and look good but could use a freshening up. This is a factory radio delete car. The tach is not working but the speedo works perfectly. The windows operate as they should as does the new top.

The 312 engine starts beautifully and drives even better. There are absolutely no issues with the mechanics of this car. This is an awesome riding and driving car. It drives straight and true and is quite easy to handle & maneuver without power steering or power brakes.

This is one of the nicest T-Birds out there short of a #1 trailer queen. It looks beautiful in its factory black on black on black combo and drives just as well. Just get in & go in 50s style with no worries at all and while this is not a concourse winner, it can easily be a winner at any local show or get-together and can be driven anywhere.
