Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is proud to present this
beautiful 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible finished in Flamingo
Pink. In 1955 the Thunderbird first debuted as a 2-seater sports
car competing directly with the Corvette. However, over a few short
years it transformed into a large 4-seater personal luxury car with
the type of power, luxury amenities and cloud like ride you would
typically expect from a Lincoln or Cadillac of the day.
Affectionately referred to as the "Square Bird" the
second-generation Thunderbird was grand statement of American
opulence that reflects the time of the 1950s so well. With its big
front end featuring a chrome grill, prominent hood bulge and tail
fins that go all the way back this big bird makes quite the
statement. Drop the power folding top into the trunk and this
Thunderbird takes on an even more svelte appearance! Take a seat
inside and you almost feel like you are piloting a jet with a dual
cowl dash layout and a stylish center console housing the power
window controls. The front bucket seats are fit for a captain and
the rear seats offer a plush lounge for your passengers. Under the
hood is a 352CID V-8 and is paired to a Cruise-O-Matic 3-speed
automatic. Factory rated at 300HP, just imagine how this
Thunderbird can get up and go, and the power steering & power
brakes are a really nice touch on this classic! As the earlier
Birds continue to rise in value these "square birds" are next in
line. The aesthetics of this era T-Bird are hard to resist and will
never be duplicated again. It is a treat for the eyes and a true
head turning event every time you take it out.
