Vehicle Description

This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is an iconic classic with a well-coordinated color combo and all the features you love - including the porthole hardtop. There are even a few upgrades that really add you your enjoyment, like the cold-blowing air conditioning. It's a distinctive icon that has been treated with the kind of respect that makes it an awesomely smooth V8 cruiser.


The professional repaint of the factory-correct code-Z Thunderbird Green is quite nice. Then again, you know someone was going to take the time and investment to get this car right. It's because this color was only available in '56, and it is arguably the best hue when you want to stand out without taking away from the T-bird's overall elegance. We all love the long flowing lines, rear fender skirts, and the continental kit on the rear. Plus, there are the sporty details, like the hood scoop and after-burner taillights. So this bright Thunderbird really knows how to be fast-with-class. And the stylishness only gets amplified when you make such a solid investment in all the iconic brightwork. The white porthole hardtop is also practically an icon all on its own, and when it's combined with the whitewall tires, you get a cool two-tone appearance.


If you like the way the green and white look on the outside, then you're going to love the interior. The trim tag tells us this attractive color combo is how this one was born, and it's all complete and clean, right down to the color-matched steering wheel. With the roof off, the elegance of this car is once again on display with a well-coordinated two-tone, sporty machine-turned panel across the dash, and the distinct plexiglas speedometer window. This was Ford's personal luxury cruiser, and so it's great to have nice options like power windows and the power seat. Plus, the addition of air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant is always desirable for summertime cruising.


Under the hood are more signs of proper care and a good life. The smooth green of the engine bay funnels your attention to the red block and bright accessories. This one looks correct, right down to the details, like the pie dish air cleaner and Thunderbird valve covers. The 312 cubic-inch V8 is correct for this P-code car, and it's even topped with a Holley four-barrel carburetor. The full package makes the proper power to keep this T-Bird cruising. Smooth acceleration, smooth power steering, and the three-speed automatic really make this a terrific smooth classic.


The level of care that went into this special T-bird is apparent from every angle. Even the ultra-clean undercarriage photos prove the total quality investment. It's a distinct collectable that's ready to be shown off, call today!
