PERIOD CORRECT 292 V8, AUTO, POWER BRAKES & STEERING, POWER SEAT, MINTER RESTO

While the 1955 Ford Thunderbird is already an irresistible icon, when you're looking for a true all-around classic, you'll instantly focus on this one. With a great color combo, sparkling chrome, nice features (like power seats,) and a thorough restoration by T-bird guru Amos Minter, you know this is a true cut-above classic.

A factory red first-year T-bird is always going to cause a stir. But this one adds in even more quality to further its desirability. For example, this Torch Red has a beautiful shine, and that's part of the comprehensive restoration this car received that the consignor claims was completed by Amos Minter in 2005. And as you continue to look at the details, you'll also see how there have been the right investments to keep this car in top-quality condition. You see this attention to detail in the body with fender skirts line up nicely and the doors shut with confidence. The mirror-like brightwork really stands out on the smooth front bumper, classic grille, sporty hood scoop, wire wheel covers, iconic tailfins, and the rear bumper that loves to showcase the dual exhaust.

The black roof has a clean look and a timeless style against the red body. But for true ... Please ask for the full description.

PERIOD CORRECT 292 V8, AUTO, POWER BRAKES & STEERING, POWER SEAT, MINTER RESTO

While the 1955 Ford Thunderbird is already an irresistible icon, when you're looking for a true all-around classic, you'll instantly focus on this one. With a great color combo, sparkling chrome, nice features (like power seats,) and a thorough restoration by T-bird guru Amos Minter, you know this is a true cut-above classic.

A factory red first-year T-bird is always going to cause a stir. But this one adds in even more quality to further its desirability. For example, this Torch Red has a beautiful shine, and that's part of the comprehensive restoration this car received that the consignor claims was completed by Amos Minter in 2005. And as you continue to look at the details, you'll also see how there have been the right investments to keep this car in top-quality condition. You see this attention to detail in the body with fender skirts line up nicely and the doors shut with confidence. The mirror-like brightwork really stands out on the smooth front bumper, classic grille, sporty hood scoop, wire wheel covers, iconic tailfins, and the rear bumper that loves to showcase the dual exhaust.

The black roof has a clean look and a timeless style against the red body. But for true distinction, you're going to want to open this T-bird up to the world. The red and white two-tone interior is an absolutely classic look that goes especially well with the exterior paint and whitewalls. So you can tell they invested nicely to make sure the full package was ready for primetime. And Ford did a great job keeping this car looking sporty with the machine-turned panel that flows from the doors and onto the dash in an almost seamless style. This one is even nicely detailed with the little extras. So you not only have the acrylic glass that lets you see through the speedometer, but also this has the correct 1955 steering wheel with a see-through horn ring. And this personal luxury cruiser also features a working power seat.

The superior level of restoration extends to the engine bay, too. The tidy and clean black inner walls funnel your attention to the red block of the cubic-inch V8. Plus, this V8 was treated to the T-bird's correct dress-up kit that includes the bright pie dish air topper and cool Thunderbird logo valve covers. More than just look good, there are newer pieces, like the starter and fuel pump. And the class/correct Holley four-barrel carburetor was rebuilt this year to keep this a strong runner. It creates a packet that's great for both Saturday car shows and Sunday drives. That's why you get easy cruising features like power steering, an automatic transmission, and new tires.

Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is a mint-condition Minter Thunderbird. Call today!!!
