For Sale: 1956 Ford Thunderbird in Ft Worth, Texas

Vehicle Description

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 classic elegance.


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!!!
