For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in Linthicum, Maryland

Vehicle Description


We just purchased this car inadvertently from the family of the 2nd owner who originally purchased it in 1972. We were told that this T-Bird was used as a daily driver until 1988 when it was decommissioned and stored in a climate-controlled facility until spring of 2020 when it was pulled from storage and sent it to a local repair shop that specializes in classics. There it underwent a full service including new brakes, new shocks, new tires, new exhaust, a new fuel system and the original 292 V-8 engine also received a full tune-up, oil change and all fluids flushed and filled. It also had the original 3 speed manual transmission replaced with a rebuilt 4 speed which included rebuilding the original shifter. a new clutch, pressure plate, throw out bearing was all replaced as well as the flywheel was resurfaced. Unfortunately, the owner had a heart attack and passed away while the car was still being repaired so he never got a chance to enjoy the car again. The family decided to give it to the repair shop in-lieu of paying the repair bill. A sad story but pretty cool, nonetheless. Once in our shop we decided not to overly detail the car because we feel the patina is part of this cars charm. The body, floors, trunk and frame are all solid and clean and the Torch Red re-paint is older but still very, very nice. We did compound and polish the paint and detailed the chrome, trim, glass and interior and she really looks amazing! We also just took it out for a cruise and was extremely impressed on how nice it actually runs and drives. Some other features include power adjustable seat, radial whitewall tires and a hard top. This sweet little T-Bird is one cool ride that you surely don't want to miss.
