Vehicle Description

Classics 1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

Why This Car Is Special

The Ford Thunderbird was a rear wheel drive automobile which was manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury car.

We have a complete frame off restoration of a 1956 Ford Thunderbird here at Skyway Classics that is in gorgeous original color of Colonial White with the white interior with black trim and the white Porthole hardtop.

Mechanical Specs

Ours has an all original engine compartment with the Optional Hi-Performance 312 Y-Block V-8 Engine 3-Speed Manual Transmission w/ Overdrive, Power steering and brakes, correct factory chrome air cleaner assembly, and all the factory correct hose, clamps, windshield washer bag, accessories.

It has the factory chrome dress up kit with the correct finned valve covers and a chrome air cleaner that gets fresh air through the fully functional hood scoop, with the exhaust system and the chassis all restored too and looks original, and wears a set of stock steel wheels with chrome wire wheels look and wide white wall tires.


You will like the pleated Black and White vinyl interior with door panels that match the dash. It is complete with the Town & Country radio, Power seat, Power windows, the gauges are in original condition and look great in the machine turned dash, and the speedometer and odometer in kilometers.

It has a copy of factory paperwork and has had the same owner for 17 years and was originally built to be exported.


The bodywork, fit, and finish are nicely done on our Colonial White Exterior over Black/White Interior and has the Thunderbird's famous "porthole" hardtop that comes in white on top of the car and the iconic "spare tire" on the chrome rear bumper.

The graceful fins and body lines has straight panels and the taillight end caps round out the rear end of the car. Other details like the Thunderbird badges, fender skirts, rear bumper with integrated exhaust outlets, and the stainless trim on the fender skirts are all great.


The 1956 Frame Off Restored Ford Thunderbird Convertible we have at Skyway Classics is fun to drive anywhere and enjoy the iconic look as well as the looks you will get just on that "Porthole" top.
