Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

Beautiful 1955 Thunderbird! The first and best year this is truly an iconic vehicle! This car has been in my personal collection for over 10 years and has been a wonderful vehicle! I must sell it because a new baby is here (Truck) and something has to go! This car underwent a frame off nut and bolt restoration and is in wonderful condition it is an older restoration that has held up very well. It sat in a Museum in LancasterPA.for 10 years and when the owner passed away it was sold as part of his estate. The red paint is beautiful, shiny (so shiny it was hard to photograph because of all the reflections in the paint) smooth and the body is laser straight there are a few flea bites to mention they are shown in the pictures one up front just above the grill one on the rear fender on top where it looks like someone set the hard top on the fender and a scratch about 2” long on the passenger front fender it is down low so it is not as noticeable other than that it is a beautiful car. The motor runs great and has an Edelbrock carburetor installed for reliability, the original T Pot carburetor will be included in the sale but you will not use it as it runs fantastic with this set up. This is a 3 speed manual transmission which is rare on Thunderbirds and a whole lot more fun to driv, most were automatics. It has a power seat, manual steering and brakes. The engine compartment is highly detailed with stamped markings on fire wall, hoses, blower housing etc. and the chrome dress up package. The original AM radio works, everything works as it should on the car. It rides on original style bias ply tires (one size bigger) It comes with the original non porthole hard top that is painted body color and a white aftermarket soft top. If the “Buy it Now” option is used all the extra parts will be included with the car if “Buy it Now” is not used I will offer the parts at additional cost! Some of the parts include an extra intake manifold with restored T Pot carburetor, a set of heads, original air cleaner, miscellaneous electrical parts etc. Sold as is where is buyer is responsible for shipping I will help coordinate as much as possible. Car is also listed locally so I reserve the right to end the auction early! Thanks and good luck bidding! This Thunderbird truly is stunning!
