Description

292 V8, C4 AUTO, PWR BRAKES/STEER, A/C, FCTRY CORRECT COLOR COMBO, CLEAN T-BIRD!

Early Thunderbirds like this 1955 example remain some of the most collectable '50s cars, and it's easy to understand why. With strong V8, great color combo, both tops, and plenty of luxury inside (including air conditioning,) this one offers a terrific balance of sporty and luxury in an iconic vintage package.

It's hard to find something more desirable than a first-year T-Bird. The way the panels fit together means you can clearly see the timeless elegance in the clean unbroken line running from the headlight to the tailfin. When you're a Thunderbird fan, you know to look for the extras. Items like the fender skirts, wire wheels with iconic whitewall tires, and the freedom that comes with both a soft top and color-matched hardtop. But, of course, the brightwork on these is the showstopper. Its mirror-like appearance looks fantastic on places like the wraparound front bumper, wide mesh grille, accenting the subtle hood scoop, and the twin tailpipes poking through the rear bumper guards. And the Torch Red paint is a fresh application, so this whole sunshine-friendly convertible can radiate on every Sunday drive.

Not only do those whitewall tires look great against the exterior paint, but also they establish a red with the hint on white theme that's continued inside, too. So this T-bird is a fantastically coordinated package whenever you're open to the world. In fact, you can see that they made a solid investment in the seats, carpeting, door panels, and much more to make sure that you can proudly show off the full package from day one. It even has the right factory-style equipment like the backlit plexiglass speedometer, factory tach, and the AM radio is even still cranking out tunes. More than just look fresh and vintage, this one comes with a ton of feature that makes this T-bird truly luxurious. It includes power windows, telescopic steering column, and a power seat. There's even cold-blowing air conditioning to keep you feeling as cool as you look in this T-bird.

Under the hood is the "Thunderbird Special" 292 cubic inch V8. The bright red engine block paint goes nicely with the rest of this car's color. Plus, there was more invested here to getting this looking correct and crisp, including the Thunderbird special valve covers, windshield washer bag, and the pie dish air topper with correct diaphragm surrounding half of it. It has also been built to be a driver with items like the 12-volt electrical system and recently rebuilt carburetor. Add in power steering, power brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission, and you have a truly great boulevard cruiser.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a true icon of the open road, so don't let this well-finished and highly-optioned example of a first-year T-bird slip away. Call today!!!
