Driven Only 2,000 Miles Since Restoration
The current owner of this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Roadster acquired it back in 2020 as the 4th lifetime owner. When he purchased the car he was told it had a full restoration in the 90's and the former owner had invested a small fortune upgrading this immaculate example over the past couple of years. Mechanically, almost every aspect of this gorgeous example has been restored or replaced including all new 12V wiring, a new fuel system ( tank, lines, and carburetor), a rebuilt rear end, a new rear main seal installed, and a new drive shaft, new alternator, new cooling system, new hoses and belts. With a completely new interior and re-chromed trim all the way around, you won't find a better looking example anywhere close to the current asking price.
Additionally, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird with Removable Hardtop comes with the original owner's manual, the Ford Shop manual, wiring schematics, and extensive other documentation to show all the work that's been recently completed. We are unsure if the drivetrain is original to this classic but we can tell you that it's very highly optioned with the desirable 3-speed automatic, upgraded front power disc brakes, power steering, adjustable steering wheel, electric seat, air conditioning and much more. With a highly impressive exterior and so much refinement, this is an incredible collector vehicle ready for it's next owner.


Always Garaged & Maintained at The Highest Possible Levels
Overall, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible is one of the most impressive performers nationwide and it presents an incredible purchase opportunity for one lucky T-Bird collector. The current owner's loss is your gain if you're prepared to act quickly.
