This 1955 Ford Thunderbird has an appeal that's as clear as black and white... literally. After all, you not only have a timeless color combo, but this is also a sleek-looking hardtop, proper V8 power, and nice details like the power seat and overdrive on the three-speed.
A nice black makes for a distinctive cruiser. And because Thunderbirds are meant to be boulevard kings, we like how this one is a nice mix of driver-ready on day one and a good detail will unlock added shine when it's car show time. Black is also desirable because it makes for the ideal backdrop to make all the brightwork stand out even more. There's an elegance in the wraparound bumpers and wire wheels covers. But the brightness also helps show off the sporty style with dual bullets on the front bumper, a hood scoop, faux side vents, and a rear bumper with integrated exhaust tips. There's also excellent detail work, right down to the fender skirts and whitewalls.
The black hardtop gives this the profile of a sleek coupe, but really, a fun T-bird delivers roadster-like open-top enjoyment. The two-tone black and white interior coordinates with the black exterior and whitewalls to give you a total package that's as elegant as a tuxedo. There's a sporty feeling with the machine-turned panel that flows from the dash seamlessly to both doors. Because this is a personal luxury cruiser, you get some features that are a true rarity for the time, like the power seat. There are also nice details like the handy large tach and working dash light. It all gives the impression that this Thunderbird wants you to drive it.
This strong driver-ready attitude is seen under the hood. This is the correct-style 292 cubic-inch V8, and it even has the classic Thunderbird valve covers. But we are also told there's only about 15k miles on this since the motor and transmission were rebuilt. The bright red V8 inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and headers exhale freely into a glasspack-style dual exhaust. And everything from an aluminum radiator to a new battery is there for proper supporting components for a good driver. We love the control the three-speed manual transmission offers, and you even have manually engaged overdrive for those times this boulevard cruiser really does hit the boulevard.
This is the T-bird that's made ideal for those who love to enjoy their classics. So you know you don't want this deal to slip away. Call today!!!
