This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is instantly attractive for its value
price. And don't forget that gets you the iconic look with a V8 up
front and a continental kit on the back. This cool-cruising
convertible even has cold-blowing air conditioning!
These first-generation Thunderbird is always the one that brings up
the most mental images. After all, they were the kind of grand
touring cars that would look elegant driving through Manhattan as
they would going through the gates of an Alabama planation. And so
this cosmopolitan style is always attractive. That's why it's great
to find a complete example like this that has everything you love,
including dual bullet-nose front bumper, wide mesh grille, hood
scoop, jet-like taillights and hallmark continental kit on the
back. The fender skirts even come with the sale. While the paint
and details are not perfect, there's a true allure is having such a
complete example of rolling elegance. You have a driver-ready car
with a price that levels room in your budget to give it the
personal touches you really want.
We really love when these convertibles are driven with the folding
roof down. The factory-correct red interior with white accents is
an attractive look, and the two-tone seat were even more recently
recovered. The dash has the right classic elements, like the
machine-turned panels and the Town and Country AM radio there for
display. This was the few years that Ford made a cool speedometer
that part of a plexiglass window, and the tach on the side goes
quite well with the floor shifter. Plus, the air conditioning is
blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant to make sure you can
enjoy the open-top driving experience even on sunny days.
The larger P-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '56, and
so it's great to still have the correct displacement under the hood
today. The correct Ford red paint on the block, chrome air cleaner,
and special Thunderbird valve covers all look stylish in engine
bay. The motor inhales deeply with a four-barrel carburetor, and it
exhales with a dignified V8 tune from the dual exhaust. Plus, you
are in complete control of the V8's power and soundtrack with the
three-speed manual transmission. It even has overdrive for added
efficiency and comfort. It's all part of a package that Ford
designed to deliver an easy-cruising status symbol, and that has
only been amplified as its vintage icon reputation grows.
This is an enduring classic that's offered for price that lets you
personalize it. Call today!!!
