For Sale: 1956 Ford Thunderbird in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is an iconic classic with a well-coordinated color combo and has all the features you love - including the hardtop and continental kit. So dig into the details on this loaded and vintage V8 cruiser.


There's so much to love about a first-generation T-bird. It's rolling elegance with the long flowing lines, rear fender skirts, and the continental kit on the rear. These showcased plenty of flair with loads of brightwork. You can tell there was a recent investment in getting the artful bumpers to shine like mirrors. Plus, there are the sporty details, like the hood scoop and after-burner tail lights. Plus, the trim tag tells us this was born a Peacock Blue car, and it's one of those single-year colors that you don't see too often. It was given an older respray, and that means it's clean and complete today with an aged-in tone that some may even suspect is original.


There's a white hardtop that looks stylish against the blue, and if you like the look of this color combo, then you'll love the similar tone of the turquoise and white interior. The Thunderbird was made to be a personal luxury cruiser, and the best also has features like power windows and a power seat. This one even has good details, like the working clock and courtesy light. And if you're a fan of vintage features, you'll also appreciate how the AM radio is still there for display. There's even a classic under-dash air conditioning unit (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) These T-birds were great at giving you a sports car feeling, and that includes pieces like the large tach and machine-turned dash panel. The result is a comfortable and engaging classic from day one.


The engine bay has a very honest and correct style. The 312 cubic-inch V8 with Holley four-barrel carburetor on top is a versatile set up to provide faithful power and good torque to keep this convertible cruising down the road. The V8 accelerates smoothly, and the confident shifts of the three-speed automatic really make this a terrific classic cruiser. And power steering, power brakes add to this effortless feeling.


This is the Thunderbird with a distinct style, desirable features, and a hardy V8 heart. So you know you don't want to let this one slip away. Call today!!!
