This 1956 Ford Thunderbird has all the great features you love
about this icon. The continental kit, porthole window hardtop, long
sleek sheetmetal, an effortless V8, and it all comes at an
exceptionally affordable price for this icon.
There's nothing more beautiful than Ford's personal coupe in black
and chrome. The high-gloss finish on the factory correct code-A
Raven Black is like true formalwear. In fact, the way the black
combines with the whitewall tires and iconic porthole hardtop, this
is like driving a tuxedo. But, of course, the brightwork on these
is the real showstopper. There has been a nice investment in making
sure it is all complete and mirror-like on places like the
bullet-nose bumper, wide mesh grille, and factory wheel covers.
Plus, T-bird people know to look for the particulars, like how the
exhaust still exits through the rear corners of the bumper - a
feature only found on a '56. The continental kit was standard
equipment to add trunk space, but let's face it, today we seek out
these ones because it's part of this iconic true charm.
Inside, the same black and white color scheme continues on the
seats, doors, and dash. This interior/exterior matching makes this
Thunderbird a real class act with the top on or off. Style and
luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, and that's why it
came with rare features for its time, like the power seat. And more
than just luxury, items like the tachometer and the machine
aluminum panel that runs from door panel to door panel give this
T-bird a sporty feeling that made them a Corvette rival. So, you'll
slip behind the factory steering wheel, grab the floor shift, and
go cruising with confidence.
The 312 cubic-inch V8 looks thoroughly original, right down to the
bright red block and iconic Thunderbird logo valve covers. We've
been told it has been given a rebuild during its lifetime, and the
way this one runs, it's not hard to believe it. The V8 inhales
deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and the dual exhaust is
throaty enough to remind you of the power without sacrificing its
luxury stature. You'll love the three-speed automatic transmission
and power steering, because they help contribute to this
convertible's everyday attitude. It's all part of a package that
Ford designed to deliver an easy-cruising status symbol, and that
has only been amplified as its classic status grows.
Complete with owner's manual, this is an enduring icon that's in
the perfect colors. So when it's also at such a nice price, you
know you have to hurry to take it home. Call now!!
