Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

If picking up a gorgeous 1955 Ford Thunderbird was not already a great idea, ow about one that's a former star. Yup, ou were not the only one attracted to this classic T-Bird. It's a museum quality car that spent many years doing just that. And at a price like this, t wont last in our showroom!These first-year Thunderbirds are true icons. It only gets better when it's in the rare factory-correct color of V-code Goldenrod Yellow. The clean, right, istinctive paint leaves a lasting impression that complement's the Thunderbird's legendary long and chrome-laden look. The car looks pretty original except for one piece that's obvious to Ford fans. The rear continental kit was not offered until '56, ut this one gains some flair, nd much needed trunk space, ith a custom unit that even extends the tailpipes. This is the kind of appearance that will slow traffic especially with its contrasting black folding soft top, r black removable hardtop in place. You were not the only one to stop and stare at this yellow and black T-Bird. The people at Coker Tire liked it so much they used it for a promotional vehicle. We still have some advertisements featuring this convertible, nd it even spent years featured in the company's museum. In fact, ou'll still find the car's wire wheels in their catalog today.If you liked the outside appearance, ou'll love the interior. Only the Goldenrod cars received the two-tone black and yellow seats, nd door panels. It's a striking combination that will have people complementing you about how clean the interior looks, nd many will swear it's a custom creation. Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, nd that's why it came with rare features for its time like the power seats and power windows. The heat/defrost sliders and upgraded AM/FM radio with iPod controls are all displayed in an machine-turned panel that flows across both doors, nd the dash. This frames the power steering wheel, nd above it is the nifty speedometer that's lit from behind by a Plexiglas panel viewed through the windshield. Just to the left of this is the tachometer, nd below to the right is a full set of auxiliary gauges. So while this is a luxury cruiser, ou do get a few reminders of the large V8 under the hood.The "Thunderbird Special" 292 cubic inch V8 looks authentic right down to iconic Thunderbird logo, alve covers, nd hood-fed chrome teapot air filter. Just like interior and the exterior, he engine bay is predominantly black and yellow, hich really draws the eyes to the red block peeking out from under the components. It's a powerhouse of a motor, ut it doesn't lose its luxury-minded attitude as it sweetly purrs through its extended dual exhaust system. The Ford-O-Matic three-speed automatic transmission stays comfortable as it clicks through the gears without a fuss. The final part of this classic cruiser package is the perfect set of bias-ply tall whitewall tires.People love a '55 because it's the car that launched an icon. But this one is a cut above because while plenty of celebrities drove Thunderbirds, his T-Bird is a celebrity. Add in its rare paint and included original parts such as the factory radio, nd we know this convertible won't last long in our showroom. Call today!!
