For sale in our Detroit showroom is this beautiful 1956 Ford Thunderbird. This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is powered by a numbers matching 292 CID V8 motor followed by a Ford 3-speed manual transmission. In 1956 this Thunderbird came with a 292 CID V8 that a year later became the Thunderbird's standard engine, and produced 202 horsepower to compete with the Corvette. The 1956 Ford Thunderbird is dressed in Peacock Blue paint, wide style white wall radial tires, a set of Thunderbird hub caps, and the matching Peacock and White vinyl interior to set off the car. In 1956 Ford made a very noticeable change by moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper, which gave you more storage room in the trunk giving it more room and a new 12 volt electrical system. In 1956 Ford also made an optional porthole in the removable roof which was selected by buyers. The Ford Thunderbirds interior is first class with beautiful blue vinyl seats, AM/FM radio, and a custom center console. Other Options include: hub caps, Coker Classic wide white wall tires, and continental spare tire kit. Also, this Thunderbird comes with both the hard and soft convertible tops. This is a great original Ford Thunderbird that is ready to cruise the road with the top down, no matter the day this car brings a smile and that old cruising feel of 1956.
