This 1956 Ford Thunderbird has all the great features you love
about this icon. The continental kit, porthole window hardtop, long
sleek sheet metal, and effortless V8 are all part of a luxury
package that is truly a timeless classic.
There's nothing more beautiful than Ford's personal coupe in black
and chrome. The high-quality respray gives the factory correct
code-A Raven Black the look of a life well lived thus far.
Beautiful body lines and fender skirts allow this one to rule the
road with a long and sleek appearance. Nice chrome accentuates this
'50s icon, and there are just the right hits of patina here
(nothing permanent but nothing overdone.) And we love how the
exhaust still exits through the rear bumper. The continental kit
adds a touch of class that helps make these T-birds iconic (even if
its real purpose is to give you enough trunk space for a nice long
road trip.) Wire wheels and whitewall tires are the perfect
finishing complement to this package that is the ultimate in
Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, and
that's why it's a real class act with the top on or off. So while
the porthole hardtop really gives this Thunderbird its iconic
appearance, this car arguably looks even better with it removed.
That's because the black with white accent on the exterior is a
theme that continued on the inside, too. The seats and carpeting
have the kind of premium feeling that lets you know it never spent
extended time in the sun. The moment you sit down, you are
surrounded in individual style with a machine-turned aluminum panel
that flows across the dash and onto both doors. This frames many of
the intricate styling touches such as tuck and roll style side
panels and black/chrome steering wheel. The first T-Birds were all
about being luxury cruisers, and this one continues that tradition.
You have nice classic features like the power windows and power
seat. Plus, well-integrated updates like the retro-style
AM/FM/stereo make it a better cruiser for modern times.
Under the hood, the 312 cubic-inch V8 under the hood with a
four-barrel carburetor is correct for this car, and it's the larger
and desirable one to have in Thunderbirds. It has the right vintage
style with the bright red block and iconic Thunderbird logo valve
covers from the factory dress-up kit. As a true personal luxury
vehicle, the power steering and Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission
help make driving effortless. So you have the right fundamentals in
place if you want a weekend driver.
Two-seater Thunderbirds will never go out of style, especially with
the perfect color combination. So when you have all the right
features, luxuries, and panache, it makes for an irresistible
classic. Call today!!!
