Carlyle Motors is pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous, Buckskin Tan, 1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible with gorgeous Brown/White interior. Hardtop with Tonneau Cover. This car is 1 of 3 "Baby Birds" coming out of a private collection here locally and has not been on the market for at least 34 years. All 3 cars received a full, frame off, nut and bolt restoration in 1999 that was done to an extremely high level and that still shows like new today. All 3 of these cars have been driven very sparingly since they were restored and were only driven on nice, sunny days or to local cars shows and events. These cars are near concourse quality and would easily be considered a 9 out of 10. Even the pickiest of picky judges would have to call these cars at least 8.5 or higher out of 10. All 3 cars would score very high under concourse judging criteria and all 3 are in excellent condition throughout. This particular car was judged at the 1999 CTCI Region 4 Convention in Greensboro, NC where it scored 294.5 out of 300 possible points. The judging sheets are shown below. Also, the soft top and fender skirts are available to be restored if you so desire. All 3 cars come with numerous photos and receipts documenting the restorations. A few pictures of the restorations will be shown below but there are many, many more that are available upon request so give us a call and we would be glad to answer any questions you may have and we would love to discuss the history of these great cars with you as well. These cars were this gentleman's pride and joy. He loved, cared for and maintained these cars meticulously over his lifetime and was proud to show them at many, many car shows and events, winning trophies and awards wherever he went. His family, which is bringing these cars to market, hopes the next individual or individuals will care for and love these cars as much as he did over his lifetime. Call us today to make us an offer on all 3 or just 1. You will not be disappointed. Call me at 713-466-8630 or on my cell phone at 832-289-5750 and ask for Calvin. Thanks for looking at all of our cars! Sincerely, Carlyle Motors, LLC Houston, Texas Showroom is located in West Houston (Katy, TX).
