Description for Ford Thunderbird 1956

AMAZING ORIGINAL SURVIVOR 56 THUNDERBIRD FAMILY OWNED FOR 57 YEARS. LAWRENCE PURCHASED THE TBIRDIN FT WORTH IN 1958 AND RECENTLY PASSED EARLY THIS YEAR SO HIS WIFECHARLENEMADE A HARD DECISION TO LET SOMEONE ELSE ENJOY THE CAR. GARAGED THE ENTIRE 57 YEARS, AWRENCE RETIRED THE TBIRD IN 1980 AS HIS CRUISER WHERE IT RESTED UNTIL I PURCHASED. EXTREMELY SOLID BODY IN DESIRABLE PEACOCK BLUE EXTERIOR WITH BLUE/WHITE INTERIOR AND WHITE HARD TOP/CONVERTIBLE TOP. FEATURES THE 312V8 4V CARB, UTOMATIC TRANS, OWER BRAKES. TO MY KNOWLEGDE THIS IS BONE STOCK WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE AFTERMARKET AIR CLEANER AND THE AC ADDED BY LAWRENCE.

I PURCHASED AND INSTALLED THE ORIGINAL REPRO FIRESTONE WHITEWALL TIRES, OMPLETELY REBULT THEFUELAND COOLING SYSTEMS TO INCLUDE A NEW RADIATOR AND GAS TANK, ATERPUMP, UEL PUMP, ESTORED CARB ALONG WITH A TUNE UP.THE TBIRD RUNS GOOD, HIFTS INTO GEAR BUT HAS NOT BEEN DRIVEN/ROAD TESTED. I DID NOTICE 2 OF THE FROST PLUGS ARE LEAKING. I DID REMOVE THE AFTERMARKET AC COMPRESSOR/BRACKET BUT LEFT THE CONDENSER/HOSES IN PLACE. I BOXED ALL PARTS REMOVED TO INCLUDE THE WATERPUMP/FUEL PUMP. I CAN PROVIDE A VIDEO UPON REQUEST OF THECARRUNNING. THE BRAKE SYSTEM WILL NEED AN ENTIRE REBUILD, BRAKE WORKS BUT OTHERWISE NO BRAKES.

INTERIOR IS ALL ORIGINAL AND WILL NEED NEW CARPET ALONG WITH A NEW SEAT COVER, RIVERSSIDESEAT IS TORE UP.THE DASH PAD/OVERALL DASHIS EXTREMELY NICE.

THE PAINT REALLY IS AMAZING FORBEING 59 YEARS OLD. YES, T HAS DENTS AND SCRATCHES MINOR PAINT TOUCH UP ON FRONT HEADER PANEL AND UPPER REAR QUARTER. THIS BODY IS EXTREMELY SOLID, LEASE SEE PICTURES FOR DETAILS. THE DRIVERS SIDE HAS PAINT MISSING ON THE VENT DOOR, OME MINOR PAINT BUBBLES IN FRONT OF THE REAR TIRE. THE PASSENGER SIDE LOWER QUARTER HAS SOMEBUBBLING. AS THE PICTURES SHOW THE FLOORS ARE EXTREMELY SOLID TO INCLUDE THE WHEEL WHEELS/FENDERS WHICH HAS THE ORIGINAL PAINTSTILL ON THE UNDERSIDE. IMPOSSIBLE TO FIND A CAR 59 YEARS OLD WITH LITTLE RUST AND STILL HAS ORIGINAL PAINT ON THE UNDERSIDE.

THE TRUNK HAS THE ORIGINAL JACK ASSEMBLY TO INCLUDE THE SHROUD FOR THE SPARE TIRE. I REMOVED THE SHROUD TO SHOW THE ORIGINAL FIRESTONE SPARE.
