Description for Ford Thunderbird 1956

This 1956 Ford Thunderbird has all the great features you love about this instantly recognizable classic. The continental kit, acres of chrome, long sleek sheetmetal, an effortless V8, and it all comes at an affordable price for this icon.
This T-bird's factory-correct code-A Raven Black is like true formalwear. In fact, the way the black combines with the whitewall tires, this is like driving a tuxedo. But, of course, the brightwork on these is the real showstopper. It has all the best pieces you love, like the bullet-nose front bumper, wide mesh grille, and factory wheel covers. Plus, T-bird people know to look for the particulars, like how the exhaust still exits through the rear corners of the bumper a feature only found on a '56. The continental kit was standard equipment to add trunk space, but let's face it, today we seek out these ones because it's part of this icon's true charm.
The black soft top is fresh and crisp, so it looks fantastic against the exterior paint. But really, we all love these even more with the roof down. That's because the factory-correct Flame Red interior with white accents is the perfect addition of color sort of like a red rose on the lapel of this tuxedo. Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, and that's why it had some of the best options available. That includes power windows and the power adjustable seat on this premium example. The moment you sit down, you're surrounded in individual style with a machine-turned aluminum panel that flows across the dash and onto both doors. This frames many of the useful features like the heat/defrost controls and the upgraded AM/FM/cassette radio whose retro-style doesn't look out of place amongst the rest of the period-correct presentation. Ford's intricate red and chrome factory steering wheel feels great in your hands. Beyond that the backlit speedo is flanked by a large tach and clock. In fact, they have gone to great lengths to keep everything looking correct, right down to the trunk pad.
The 312 cubic-inch V8 looks thoroughly original everywhere you look from the bright red block, to the coolant bag, to the iconic Thunderbird logo valve covers. The V8 inhales deeply as the hood scoop feeds a four-barrel carburetor. And the dual exhaust is throaty enough to remind you of the power without sacrificing its luxury stature. You'll love the two-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, power brakes, and power steering, because they help contribute to this convertible's everyday attitude. It's all part of a package that Ford designed to deliver an easy-cruising status symbol, and that has only been amplified as its vintage icon reputation grows.
Complete with maintenance receipts, this is an enduring classic that's in the perfect colors. So when it's also at such a nice price, you know you have to hurry to take it home. Call today!!!
