For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird has a formal color combo, proper V8 power, and desirable features - including both hard and soft tops. So this is the true cruiser with a carefully crafted level of cool.

White looks great on a first-generation Thunderbird. After all, it's a timelessly attractive color, and the first-year T-bird is a rolling icon with tiles appeal. It's easy to call this a cruiser-ready finish. What that means is it has a nice gloss that will radiate for the early morning cars and coffee, and it will look great under the neon at the local cruise-in. So it's not a trailer queen and has the right style to be a good driver (that's why there is even brand new fuel pump and water pump.) The while looks great coordinating with the whitewall tires and detestable hardtop for a very elegant total style. Or you can put up the well-fitting black folding soft top and have the same kind of formal appeal as a white coat tuxedo. More than attractive color options, it has all the iconic pieces that you love, like the hood scoop, sporty side louvers, fender skirts, jet-inspired tailfins, and detailed wire wheel covers. And those dual exhaust tips are on display in one of the coolest ways ever from the 1950s.

And when you decide to enjoy this with no top at all, you still get the same black and white appeal. You'll appreciate the fundamentals in this one. The seats, carpet, and dash have a clean and complete look. Even the dash courtesy light is working. There are great premium cruisers with details like the artful steering wheel and clear Plexiglas speedometer. Plus, the working tach is great to have with the floor shifter.

Under the hood is a correct-style 292 cubic inch V8 block. It has the bright chrome air cleaner and detailed Thunderbird valve covers that really set the look apart. And if you dig a little deeper, you can also see an updated Holley four-barrel carburetor and an updated intake (the stock units can be made available with the sale.) Not only do you have recent investments in the fuel pump and water pump (for around $850) but you can also see from the clean undercarriage that the dual exhaust is also newer. And you get to take full control of this V8 cruiser with the three-speed manual transmission.

Formal style meets fun cruising in this first-year Thunderbird. Don't let this deal slip away. Call today!!!
