Description
 
OUTSTANDING, NEVER RESTORED 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible, with the 4.8 Liter, 292 CI Y-Block V8 Mercury engine. It only has 6,500 original miles on it, with no major engine work, and has the stock carburetor, as well as stock oil bath air filter. It does, however, have an oil filter adapter installed, changing it from the Cartridge style filter to a spin on. It also has a 12 volt Alternator installed with an inline Voltage drop installed, allowing it to continue to be a 6 Volt electrical system. All Fluids and parts have been checked, Engine and transmission are in pristine condition, and No restoration necessary.
It has the factory paint job, and it looks great although has been touched up. The original color is "Snowshoe White." This was the first year this color was available on this Model. It has Power Steering (Referred to as the "Ford Master Guide"), Factory stereo (which is in need of new tubes), Automatic transmission (Ford-O-Matic 2 Speed), Power Windows, Power Seats, and a Leather Interior in the Classic Red and White. The Hardtop is in excellent condition with the original headliner, includes the ragtop frame but without the cloth. Although it does have some slight Ocean air pitting in some of the chrome, only really noticeable on close examination. Also, very slight fading of the Red on the Leather Wrapped Dash board. The seats and carpet have been redone and are in excellent condition.
This car has only changed hands twice: Grandpa bought it from the original owner. When he bought it in 1983 he documented 2785 miles on the car. Due to lack of record keeping back then we cannot state with 100% certainty that is correct, but when you see the condition it is in with the original paint and engine you will agree that this is a rare find.
