For Sale at Auction: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in Scottsdale, Arizona

Vehicle Description

1955 Thunderbird powered by a 292/193hp Y-block V8 engine, fitted with a single 4-barrel carburetor paired to a 3-speed manual transmission. The exhaust pipes for the T-bird were integrated into the rear fascia and above the rear bumper, giving it an unmistakable Jet-Age look. It is also the recipient of a new soft-top, rebuilt carburetor, new springs, rear shocks and a complete 12-volt conversion (including gauges and light bulbs) and an updated aluminum radiator with a new water pump. Additional features include Swift Sure power brakes, Master Guide power steering, power lift windows, white sidewall tires, full wire wheel covers, exterior rearview mirror, backup lights and convertible hardtop. The exterior is finished in its original Golden Rod Yellow, paint code 80653, which was a late introduction in March 1955. The new interior trim is black and white, code A/XA, with a distinctive sew pattern on the seats - the darker-colored bolsters are wrapped around the outboard edge of the seat cushion and seat back, then it splits the two seating areas in half down the center. The piping around the pleated inserts matches the color of the inserts. Optional equipment in this T-bird includes a factory radio, which comes with the car.
