For sale in our Orlando Florida showroom is a stunning 1956 Ford Thunderbird. The first generation Thunderbirds were some of the most iconic automobiles ever created by Ford and came onto the scene one year prior 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 amazing and features the original shade of Black with matching black and white interior, white hardtop . Powering up this beauty is the 292 Cubic Inch V8 mated to the 3 speed Manual transmission which will really make this car get up and go . This car had some great options including a hood scoop, fender skirts, continental kit, Air conditioning , and AM FM cassette radio...Driving this car with the top down 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. This car will stand out in the crowd.. Located in our Orlando Florida showroom, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird can be seen including an HD video and pictures 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.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
The Ford Thunderbird has gone through many iterations during its design and market focus.
After a visit to Europe in the early 1950s, Henry Ford II decided he wanted to build a two-seat, convertible sports car for the American public.
After Ford reinvented the Thunderbird as a four-seat luxury car for 1958, some still pined for the trim, exclusive, two-seat sports car that Thunderbird was when introduced in 1955.
