Description
 
Our Tampa Showroom is happy to have for sale, a beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird. The 55\ T-Bird was Henry Ford\s response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. No one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird\s first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a ??personal luxury vehicle.? This Raven Black beauty is a fine example of that first year, a great representation of the epic Thunderbird line. It has both hard top and soft tops, ready for whatever weather you throw at it. It\s powered by a legendary 292 Y-Block V8, which churns out an impressive 198 horsepower. These motors were known for reliability, impressive torque, and unique sound. It\s backed by a healthy 3-speed Fordomatic automatic transmission, which makes it an easy driver and a nice cruiser for anyone and everyone. You can truly understand why Ford motor company tried to emphasize the luxury aspect of the 1955 T-Bird, by peeking in the car, then taking a seat. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird convertible for sale has a list of options, which include: AM Radio, hard convertible top, a brand new soft convertible top, power steering, power seats, power windows, telescopic wheel, seat belts, classy vinyl, and luxurious wide whitewall radial tires. The previous owner was meticulous on maintenance and stayed consistent on replacing even the smallest things. Previous repairs and maintenance include, but are not limited to: A recent brake rebuild, new gas tank, electric fuel pump, new starter, updated electric ignition with new cables, plugs, and wires, a new Holley 4 barrel carburetor, new power steering hydraulic hoses, a recent valve job, new spare tire and rim, a gorgeous new white soft convertible top with reconditioned frame and swing bar, new 6-volt battery, new transmission seals, new water hoses, new heater core, new exhaust system, new engine mounts, new transmission mounts, and brand new shocks. This daily drivable 1955 Thunderbird convertible for sale is located in our Tampa Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including an HD video, at www.GatewayClassicCars.com, or call (813)-645-6200 for additional information.
