For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in Cadillac, Michigan

Vehicle Description

1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Red over Red/White interior with a White Hardtop (only----no soft top in favor of more driver compartment space). Vehicle is straight, solid, and the red paint is 2-stage base/clear and is above average in my opinion. No Power Steering. No Power Brakes. No Power Windows. AM/FM/Stereo with working cassette player Engine has been upgraded to a non-original 302cu in V8 by the previous owner. This car starts easily, runs well with plenty of power to move this car nicely. EXTERIOR: Body is straight and solid. See photos of trunk floor etc. in great shape. Panel alignment is good at door/quarters and the hood/decklid. The top fitment is good as well. There are minor stone chips evident from a car that is clearly enjoyed. Prior owner added the door edge guards that can be removed for the purists. Exterior is stock-appearing with vivid red paint and a nice contrasting white top. INTERIOR: Interior appears to be leather (?)----it might be high grade vinyl? Not 100% sure. Carpets are in good shape and minor detailing will make them great. Floor Mats are OEM-type. The Steering Wheel while sporty, is not original. The Shifter is also sporty, but not original. Prior Owner put a few $$'s into modifying the dash for an OE-look by adding gauges to the center dash area and a tach left of the instrument cluster. The odometer indicates 62587 and looks correct. The Speedo has quit working in the last 2 weeks and senior owner hasn't been able to get it into the shop yet to see why. Seatbelts have been added for safety. They look and work great. The original soft top & hardware were removed by prior owner in favor of more leg room in driver compartment. A vinyl cover behind covers the void nicely. The trunk has some custom sewing of '55' on the area under the rear upper deck panel that looks nice. A photo of both sides of rear trunk floor shows this car to be solid (prior owner came from FL). MECHANICAL: 302cu in. V8 Engine is clean, no leaks.
