Ford Thunderbird 1955 Description

Early Thunderbirds like this 1955 example remain some of the most collectable '50s cars, and it's easy to understand why. With strong-performing V8s under the hood, plenty of luxury, and style that still makes people smile even more than sixty years later, these are ideal cars for the collector who enjoys driving. Take some time to look at the paint in these pictures. See that almost halo-like glow? That's thanks to the modern Pearl White paint. This recent application lives up to its name by adding a lustrous metal flake within the white, which gets highlighted even further when it gets cleared over. The result is a heavenly Thunderbird every time the sunshine hits this droptop. So while the paint is modern, it radiates the kind of luxury we bet Ford would have done if they had the technology back in '55. And since the paint Is shimmering so nicely, only the best brightwork can go with it. That's why the bullet-nosed front bumper and the exclusive '55 rear bumper we re-dipped to have the best chrome. Plus, when you're a Thunderbird fan, you know to look for the extras. Items like the added Continental kit and hardtop let you know this is a premium example of Ford's personal luxury cruiser. Finishing it all off are a great set of wire wheels with Thunderbird center caps, and whitewall tires are a must-have for complete iconic style.While we all love the iconic look of the porthole hardtop that comes with the sale, you might like the white soft top even more. That's only because it allows you quicker access to show off the interior. This restored black and white setup gives this T-Bird the appeal of a finely pressed tuxedo. So there's always going to something alluring about parking it in the front row no matter if it's a car show or a night on the town. Once you power adjust the seat to your perfect setting, you'll notice the machined aluminum panel that runs from door panel to door panel give this the sporty feeling that made this a Corvette rival. You slip behind the factory steering wheel, and above it is the nifty speedometer that's lit from behind by a Plexiglas "window" viewed through the windshield. It's a true class act.Under the hood is the "Thunderbird Special" 292 cubic inch V8 which purrs sweetly through an authentic dual exhaust system. Bold red engine paint was a Thunderbird design statement, along with the bright chrome air cleaner and gorgeous cast aluminum valve covers that were part of a dress-up kit. As a true personal luxury vehicle, the power steering and Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission make driving effortless. So there's nothing stopping you from going out an enjoying this icon on the open road.Complete with restoration photos, this first-year Thunderbird has been given all the right care and improvements to be the shining star in your life.
