For Sale: 1955 Ford Thunderbird in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible! The Thunderbird was released in 1955 as Ford's "personal car". It was not a direct competitor to the Corvette but with their similarity's it was very hard not to compare the 2. The Thunderbirds first model year was 1955 and outsold the Corvette by a substantial margin, like 23:1. Ford considered it a personal luxury car more than a sports car. The T-bird would see so many changes over the years, but the first generation holds a special place with collectors everywhere! Here we have a '55 model, the first year of the 1st generation. The yellow paint looks good, you can tell its produced what I call enjoyment equity, time on the road. The chrome still looks bright, minimal pitting. The black soft top has visible signs of wear, will need repaired/replaced. The black and yellow vinyl interior looks to be in good order. Under the hood is believed the original motor, per the vin should be a 292 V8. Power is controlled through a 3-speed manual transmission on the floor. Odometer shows 17k miles and title says actual, but we have no further proof, so mileage is believed original. Current owner has had her for over a year, acquired from a private owner. The title is clean and clear and ready to be transferred into your name now! You don't see many in this color folks so don't miss your chance! Options on this Thunderbird are: Manual Convertible Top, Vinyl Interior, Telescopic Wheel, Am/FM/Cassette Radio, Seat Belts, Hub Caps, and White Wall Tires. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible is offered by our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at For additional information please call our knowledgeable staff at (812) 294-1555 or email us at [email protected]
