Description for Ford Thunderbird 1956

This '56 classic T-Bird resto-mod is prepped and ready for cruising with an updated chassis and drive train. Its "Scarlet Fever" paint job and beautiful custom "cappucino cream" interior makes it an instant eye-catcher whether it's driving down the highway or pulling into the local cruise-in. This cruiser has undergone a frame-off reconstruction. The frame was fitted with a Heidts power rack & pinion front end assembly with 10" power front discs brakes. The original Y-Block was replaced with a 350 GM 330 HO crate engine connected to a 700 R4 transmission. The rear end assembly is a '55-'56 T-Bird with 3:31 rear gears. The front and rear stance are two inches lower which gives it a "cool cruising" appearance. The engine is fed by a 600 Holley carburetor and exhausts through tube headers and Magna-Flow mufflers giving it an awesome sound. It is cooled by a heavy duty aluminum radiator equipped with an electric puller fan and an additional switched auxiliary pusher fan.This all sits in a nicely detailed engine compartment. The interior cabin consists of comfortable leather adjustable bucket seats, and a GM tilt column with a custom Pilot steering wheel.The instrument cluster contains all Stewart-Warner gauges and the tunes are provided by a Sony radio/CD player. While the dash mounted air-conditioner provides cool comfort, no heater is available.The console mounted shifter is from B & M, and a curtain-covered shelved storage area is located behind the seats. The trunk area is fully carpeted and provides concealed storage for the jack assembly and relocated battery. The spare tire, of course, is housed in the recognizable continental kit. While showing typical age-related paint and body flaws, the paint is bright and shiny and the flaws do not detract from the car's over-all appearance. Chrome and trim quality is very good showing only minor scuffs. The glass throughout is in great condition.The removable port hole hardtop has nearly new weather stripping all around and a very nice fitting headliner. The gravel guard equipped fender skirts fit nicely and give the car its famous long, low sporty Thunderbird appearance. New 15" white wall tires provide a smooth performance. (Since the attached pictures were taken, the older wide white wall tires have been replaced with the new more narrow white walls. Although this car is not a "fresh" restoration, it is a super driver quality automobile with modern conveniences and dependability.The upgrades have made the car quicker and way more fun to drive. The mileage listed is assumed since restoration. In 1956, only 15,631 Thunderbirds were produced. Although this car has been updated, its outward appearance still resembles the beautiful original production model. Don't miss this opportunity to own and enjoy an improved piece of American history.
