We are pleased to offer this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible for
purchase. The Thunderbird was a rushed development in response to
the Corvette, but then ended up as a personal luxury roadster
instead. The first year (1955) Thunderbird was a tremendous success
selling 16,155 cars compared to just 700 Corvette's sold. The
Thunderbirds were marketed towards their features rather than
performance despite having a 292 cu in V8. The 1955 to 1957 years
were just 2-seaters and remained that way until 2002 (which were
modeled after the 1st generation Thunderbirds whom many believe are
the pinnacle of the line).
The example offered here is powered by what appears to be a 292 V8
paired with an automatic. The engine runs smoothly and the
transmission shifts as it should. Highlights include power brakes,
power steering, whitewall tires, aluminum intake, Holley 4 barrel
carburetor. The black and white vinyl is a power seat but does not
work. The car does not have a soft top. The first generation Tbirds
remain one of the most collectible cars to this day. Don't miss
your opportunity to own this affordable example.
