Vehicle Description

1955 Ford Thunderbird with great provenance.  The original owner was Maxene Andrews of the "Andrew Sisters".  The second owner was Friz Freleng, the famous director of the early Warner Brother cartoons.  I (current owner) used to play guitar in a band with the original drummer from Guns N Roses, Steven Adler and my mother in law is Carol Burnett. 

The Wall Street Journal did an article about me and the car in the March 25th, 2020 issue. 

This car was fully restored in 2012.  It looks and runs amazing! Everything is factory correct, 292 engine, "Fordomatic automatic transmission, "TeaPot" carburetor, which is perfectly tuned. Power seats, windows, brakes and power steering.  Everything is correct down to the hose clamps and it's original 6 volt system, even the clock works.
