For Sale: 1959 Ford Thunderbird in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

This 1959 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 58 T bird was all new and really a completely different car than the first generation. After winning Motor Trend’s Car of the Year award many of the fans from the first generation were appalled but proof was in the numbers with sales doubling that year. The 59 models were similar with only minor changes in ornamentation sales would once again almost double the previous year with almost 68000 units sold. This 59 is a great example of why people loved the new design. The exterior has had a clean white paint laid down on a very nice body giving you a very slick finish product. The period correct wheels add to the nostalgia of this luxurious beauty. Under the hood is the coolest part of this car, the original 430 CID Lincoln motor sets nestled between the frame rails. Fresh off a complete overhaul this big block is ready get down the road. Bored .60 over with new pistons this is one of the best running birds I have sit in. The lifters and hardened valve seats ensure this baby needs nothing but some good ole gasoline. A performance cam with fresh bearings was installed as well completing this potent big block build. Naturally you can’t be putting all this power to a dogged out transmission. With that said the transmission was pulled and completely rebuilt as well making this a better than new drivetrain. Once you look inside you realize why this beauty needs all that power. With virtually everything power assisted those motors add up quick. Everything from the windows to the seat are all controlled by the touch of a button. Then you notice above the rear passenger is two vents which are factory correct AC vents making this one of the rarest optioned J codes around. With the market for these birds constantly changing this 59 will take you out of that category just because of the 430 CID engine. If you have been looking for a great car to start a collection or just a car that is guaranteed to increase in value, then look no further. Options on this 1959 Ford Thunderbird J code include AC, AM Radio, Power Steering, Power Windows, Power Seats, Hub Caps and Tires.
