Gateway Classic Cars of Orlando is proud to present this striking 1956 Ford Thunderbird. The first-generation Thunderbirds were some of the most iconic automobiles ever created by Ford and came onto the scene in 1955 in direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette and many European sports cars of the time. The original concept looked a bit foreign and the actual production model proved to be more American and luxurious. This fine example is just jaw-dropping and features a stunning shade of White with matching black and white interior, white porthole hardtop and white soft top making this car really stand out in the crowd. Powering up this beauty is what is believed to be the original V8 Engine mated to the 2-Speed Ford-O-Matic transmission which was very similar to the Powerglide of the time. This car has some great options including a hood scoop, fender skirts, both tops, power windows and Air Conditioning as well as the super cool town and Country radio. Driving this car with the top down/off is like taking a trip down memory lane. Most old cars from the '50's and '60's can be cumbersome and difficult to drive but not this beauty. One turn of the key and the V8 comes to life and this car rides and handles like a more modern car and is sure to get plenty of attention on the road. Can you imagine it in your garage? This is the one you want to own. This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Orlando Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

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.
