Engine: 292ci V8 Transmission: Automatic Mileage: 38718 Actual Miles Exterior Color: Torch Red Interior Color: Red & White Vinyl Frame Off Cosmetic Restoration in ’08 w/ Limited Miles Driven Since Completion 12 Volt Electrical System Red Hard & White Canvas Top Power Seats / Cabin Instruments Operating Properly except Clock & Radio Drum Brakes Fresh P205/75/R15 Wide White Wall Tires This classy looker was Henry Ford's direct response to GMs Corvette. In the Thunderbirds first year of production they out sold the Corvette 32 to 1. The buyers of these beauties were obviously happy with their choice. Our 1955 Thunderbird has gone through a frame off cosmetic restoration with very few miles driven since completed. We have the hard top with the frame work for the soft top. The vehicle has 38,718 miles since it was new so whoever picked this car to do a restoration wanted to start with a solid original low mileage car. The color of this classic is Torch Red with a red and white vinyl interior. If you have an interest in this vehicle or have any questions please call or email us!

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
