For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird replica looks correct in all the right places, but then you also get a lighter body, a more comfortable interior, a better suspension, a five-speed, and upgraded V8 power... and all of these improvements come at a seriously deep discount.

You know this iconic shape, and so does everyone else. This is a great tribute to an American classic that carries all the right elements (heck, the color makes it a red-blooded American.) The bright chrome bumper and mesh grille get the shine right for the legend. And so does the hood scoop, fender trim, jet-inspired tail lights. You even get a removable hardtop with porthole side windows. But this one also has the right dose of added street machine attitude. They don't replicate the badging to give the body a sleeker style. The Weld alloys have a classic racer style, especially with the wider rear set that gives this a sporty stance. And when the roof is off, you get to showcase the roll bar. And this replica is done in fiberglass. So it's not only good for avoiding corrosion, but it's also lighter than steel.

The interior is a nice mix of style and substance. The dark package looks good against the bright red exterior. And the dual bucket seats with excellent bolstering make this far more of a personal car than even the original Thunderbird. You've also got some worthwhile modern upgrades like an AM/FM/CD stereo and provisions for R134a air conditioning (it will need servicing to blow cold again.) It's a nice driver's setup with a Grant GT sports steering wheel and a five-speed floor shifter. And while you get the classic T-bird plexiglass speedometer, this is surrounded by upgrade gauges, including a handy tach.

Under the hood might just be your favorite update over the original. This T-Bird tribute has Ford's hardy 351 cubic-inch V8 in the engine bay. It looks powerful with the unique air grabber and Ford Racing polished valve covers. And it lives up to this authoritative style with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, performance intake, and headers feeding into the dual exhaust. This also has the right supporting components like an HEI distributor and an aluminum radiator with electric fan. It's a powerful package that you'll love taking full control over with the five-speed manual transmission. As you look underneath, you'll spot an upgraded independent front end, a four-link rear, and adjustable coilovers all-around. Plus, there's rack & pinion power steering and power brakes with front discs to be a solid all-around driver.

This Thunderbird replica gives you more power and style for less price than an original. That makes for a head-turning classic that was built to be driven. Call today!!!
