For Sale: 1956 Ford Thunderbird in Lake Hiawatha, New Jersey

Vehicle Description

The 1956 Thunderbird is a classic American car that exudes timeless elegance and style. It features a sleek and aerodynamic design that captures the spirit of the 1950s with its iconic lines and curves. The exterior is adorned with chrome accents, including the distinctive front grille and the beautifully styled porthole windows. Zoom Classic Cars is proud to present this 1956 Ford Thunderbird. This vehicle underwent a full restoration in 2000. Since that restoration it has been driven 3284 miles. The current owners purchased it in 2010 at a Mecum Auction in Indianapolis. The original color scheme was black and white, but during restoration was changed to still period correct Fiesta red and white. The vehicle is powered by a 312 cubic inch V-8 and transfers its power to the rear wheels via a three-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission. This was the larger of the two engines available for the 1956 Thunderbird. The vehicle has had limited use over the past decade. The tires have recently been checked by a certified mechanic and verified they are in good shape. It has been run over the last few weeks, and there is evidence of one small, slow oil leak near the driver's side of the engine bay. The speedometer is front and center on the dash, with clock, fuel and temperature gauges, as well as the tachometer, and all are fully functioning. The AM/FM stereo with 8-track player is currently disconnected, because there was some type of electrical short. The vehicle is equipped with both the fully functioning convertible top, and the currently installed hard top. The interior headliner from the hardtop is a beautiful pearl white and is in excellent condition. The red and white interior, dash, carpet, gauges are all in excellent condition. The trunk is equipped with the plaid liner. Included, though not currently installed are the fender skirts. There are some visible scratches on the back side of the spare tire holder. You can only see this if you go looking for it on the backside, as shown in the photos. Just above the driver's headlight there is a spot of bare metal about the size of a dime also shown in a photo. These are the only imperfections to the exterior paint. The chrome bumpers and moldings shine in the sunlight. This Thunderbird has the classic wire spoke wheels and whitewall tires. The undercarriage is solid and shows no signs of rust. The engine bay is clean, though you can see the paint peeling on the radiator fan casing. All other portions of the engine bay are clean, painted, or chrome. The vehicle is equipped with power steering and power brakes. Overall, the 1956 Thunderbird is a true icon of American automotive history. Its timeless design, luxurious interior, and powerful performance make it a sought-after classic car that continues to captivate car enthusiasts and collectors alike. The vehicle is located in northwestern Indiana. Call Tom at (269) 317-3955 to learn more or schedule a viewing.
