This Aqua Thunderbird is in good condition. The steel-bodied 1955 T-bird has the standard removable fiberglass hardtop with roll-up windows. The Thunderbird V-8 is a 292 cubic-inch Y-block topped by a single four-barrel carburetor with dual exhaust and Ford-O-Matic automatic tranny. The interior has aqua/white leather bench power seat, tach, clock and original AM radio. The car was restored in 2001 and the owner has a binder full of the receipts from the project. The heater and A/C are not working; also not working are the power seats, radio, clock and lighter. This a straight and solid car that runs great.
An inspection can be arranged by appointment only. If the car needs to be shipped, we will ensure the car is available for the transporter's schedule. Reasonable offers will be considered. If you have questions or want to discuss the car, contact Randy at 612-619-2252.
I do marketing consignments for customers who don't have time to set up ads for their vehicle or don't use the internet. I charge a flat fee up front and do not collect any consignment fees when the vehicle sells. I am not a dealer. The vehicle remains in the owner's possession. I handle inquiries. When the potential buyer becomes serious, I put them in touch with the owner who can answer specific questions about the vehicle.

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.
