Nice driver 1955 Ford Thunderbird in excellent condition. Engine drives strong and the automatic transmission shifts well. Many new parts have been added and much work has been done so far. Have all receipts for everything I had done to the car. Nearly everything in the engine bay is new, even the engine wiring harness has been replaced. Electronic ignition has been added and new power steering components as well as new tires, shocks and gas tank. Original radiator has been rebuilt. New hoses, fuel pump, gas lines, water pump, rebuilt original carburetor, fan shroud, battery, cables, spark plugs and wires. The carpet has been replaced. Have a new seat cover for it in the box that goes with the car. Also comes with manuals and new car cover. The paint is older but still presentable with a good coat of wax still looks OK. Comes with the hard top and white soft top, but the soft top is not mounted in the car and is just stored behind the seat. At one point the car had power seats but all the components were taken out when I bought the car so the seat is in a fixed position as far back as it can go. The gauges all work even the original clock but the original radio does not work. Overall a nice car you can have fun with right away and take to car shows.
