For Sale: 1959 Ford Thunderbird in Fairmont City, Illinois


Vehicle Description

This 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible 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 Convertible ‘59 T-bird 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. Once you look inside you realize why this beauty needs all that power. With virtually everything power assisted these items add up quick and add to the weight of these heavy cars. Everything from the windows to the seats are controlled by the touch of a button. With the market for these birds constantly changing this ‘59 will take you out of that category just because of the 430 CID engine. The red interior is in very good shape and not showing much wear for an all original Bird with just over 94000 miles showing on the odometer. The convertible top looks to be in great shape and appears to be in proper working, but please take note that the hydraulic system for the power top is leaking and will need to be fixed. 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.
