For Sale: 1959 Ford Thunderbird in Cordova, Tennessee


Vehicle Description

Ford reinvented the Thunderbird in 1958, and though sales for the first generation '55 to '57 T-birds had been strong, they really took off with the &quot;Square Bird,&quot; as '58 to '60 T-birds came to be known. The four-passenger second-generation Thunderbird provided all the luxury and convenience expected in a luxury car, but in a smaller size than the contemporary Cadillac, Lincoln, and Imperial, making it easier to park and maneuver.<br /><br /> Motivated by the powerful new 352ci V-8 Interceptor engine, the Square Birds were swift and sporty, though not high performance. Handling improved in 1959, when leaf springs returned to the rear suspension from an earlier coil spring design that did not work out in 1958 as the designers planned.<br /><br /> The interior of the '59 T-bird is little changed from the revolutionary design of '58 that earned Motor Trend Magazine's Car of the Year award. The front seats are individually adjustable, the functional center console separating the seats houses controls for the heater, radio speaker, and power windows, as well as ash trays for front and rear passengers. The padded instrument panel came standard, dressed up with polished and brushed ribbed aluminum trim. Pleated vinyl inserts and vinyl bolsters in the seats were colored to match exterior paint colors.<br /><br /> This 59' Thunderbird is in great condition to fly and just needs a pilot. If that's you, please call Art &amp; Speed at (901) 850-0507. You'll be the talk of the town.
