1955 Ford Thunderbird for sale. Motorcar Classics is pleased to
present this 1955 Ford Thunderbird featured in Red with White
hardtop and Red amp; White vinyl interior. Hard top convertible
with a black cloth soft top. This car is equipped with the 3-speed
manual transmission. Options include power windows and AM radio.
Fords original two-seat Thunderbird, inspired by Chevrolets
Corvette, went into production on September 9, 1954. Like
Chevrolets fiberglass sports car, the steel-bodied 1955 T-bird
rides on a 102-inch wheelbase, but the similarities ended there.
Save for some early applications, a removable fiberglass hardtop
was standard. Also standard were roll-up windows and V-8 power, all
features unavailable to early Corvette customers. The Thunderbird
V-8 is a 292 cubic-inch Y-block topped by a single four-barrel
carburetor. Output is 193 horsepower as rated with the standard
3-speed manual gearbox. Our car presents itself in very good
condition all around. We would characterize it as a high-level
driver and it will be a source of pride to its next owner. It runs
and drives well and looks great going down the road.
