Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

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, a dash of luxury, and style that still makes people smile even more than fifty years later, these are ideal cars for the collector who enjoys driving. Code A Raven Black paint covers every square inch of the body to great effect; this one will stop traffic! This first-year Thunderbird truly came from the mind of artists, and you can see it in the clean, unbroken line running from the headlight to the tailfin. Fit and finish are good, with doors that feel substantial and a trunk lid that fits so well that the gas filler is neatly centered in its opening. When you're a Thunderbird fan, you know to look for the extras. Items like the fender skirts and hardtop let you know this is a premium example of Ford's personal luxury cruiser. But, of course, the brightwork on these is the showstopper. It's complete and mirror-like appearance looks fantastic against the black paint on places like the wide mesh grille, factory wheel covers, and the twin tailpipes poking through the rear bumper guards. And speaking of standouts, the whitewall tires are a must-have for iconic style.When you look inside, you also understand instantly why there are whitewall tires against the dark paint. The same black, white, and chrome color scheme continues on the seats, doors, and dash. This interior/exterior matching makes this Thunderbird a real class act with the top down. Items like the tachometer and the machine aluminum panel that runs from door panel to door panel give this the sporty feeling that made them 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. Under the hood is the "Thunderbird Special" 292 cubic inch V8 which purrs sweetly through an authentic dual exhaust system. Bright 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 Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission makes driving effortless.
