SHARP, 312 V8, AUTO, PWR STEER, PWR SEAT, CONTINENTAL KIT, HARDTOP, NICE, CLEAN!
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!!
