In 1955, Ford decided it was their turn and gave full reigns to their team to design a two-seater that was for the everyday person. Though the first installment wasn't as fast as those from Chevy, they eventually solidified the Thunderbird as a classy two-seater with some power. 1957 would end up being the last version of the Thunderbird that was known for its sporty demeanor and allowing only two people in the cabin. Other standout features included a power seat, a radio that was controlled by speed, a new dash and console area, and fins that made the car show off a bit more than its predecessors. The Thunderbirds are still highly collectible and sought after in today's market. This numbers matching product is one that shouldn't be missed.For more information on this beautiful and iconic American Classic, call our friendly and knowledgeable sales team or always feel free to drop by our Bellevue, WA Park Place Ltd campus - where we have over 40,000 sq ft of indoor showrooms filled with the finest cars.
