Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE V8 292 3 SPD W/ OVERDRIVE 54K MILES ORIGINAL NOT REBUILD LQQK ITS A BLACK BEAUTY!!! VIN # P5FH157947
THIS IS A PRIVATELY OWNED 1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE. IT COMES WITH ORIGINAL HARDTOP AS PICTURED AND A CLOTH BLACK CONVERTIBLE TOP AS WELL. THIS VEHICLE WAS PURCHASED APPROX 3 YEARS AGO FOR PRIVATE COLLECTION. WHEN PURCHASED IN APPROX 2016, THE CURRENT OWNER WAS TOLD THE MILES ARE ORIGINAL AND SHOWING ONLY 54,956 ORIGINAL MILES. THIS 55 T-BIRD APPEARS TO BE ORIGINAL UNRESTORED CONDITION AND MILES APPEAR TO BE CORRECT FOR APPEARANCE AND CONDITION CORRESPONDING WITH UNRESTORED / UNREBUILT VEHICLE OF ITS AGE. WE HAVE BEEN TOLD IT HAS ONLY HAD ONE REPAINT SINCE NEW IN 1955. WE WERE ALSO TOLD THAT IT WAS OWNED FOR PAST 41 YEARS BY PREVIOUS OWNER AND THAT A FORD DEALERSHIP OWNED IT FROM 1955 UNTIL 1975. WE BELIEVE THE CURRENT OWNER IS THE 3RD ORIGINAL OWNER SINCE IT WAS NEW. IT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF BEING WRECKED. THE EXTERIOR IS BLACK IN COLOR AS PICTURED. THE PAINT LOOKS GREAT SHOWING ONLY NORMAL BLEMISHES AND WEAR AS PICTURED. WE WOULD CONSIDER THIS THUNDERBIRD TO BE A LOCAL SHOW WINNING QUALITY AND A BEAUTIFUL DRIVER. IT COMES WITH CLEAN CLEAR NORTH CAROLINA TITLE. THE EXTERIOR IS NOT PERFECT BUT VERY NICE AND SOLID FOR ORIGINAL UNRESTORED.IT COMES WITH THE ORIGINAL V8 292 ENGINE WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION WITH RARE OPTION OVERDRIVE. OVERDRIVE DOES WORK. THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION BOTH RUN GREAT.IT RUNS AND DRIVES GREAT WITH NO MECHANICAL ISSUES THAT WE ARE AWARE OF. MOTOR SOUNDS GREAT AND STRONG RUNNING V8. THE BODY IS SOLID AND IN NICE CONDITION. IT SHOWS NO SIGNS OF RUST TO MENTION AND ONLY SHOWS TYPICAL SIGNS OF WEAR FROM LOW MILES AND UNRESTORED GARAGE KEPT CONDITION.THE TIRES ARE IN NICE CONDITION SHOWING EXCELLENT TREAD LIFE. IT HAS MATCHING CHROME HUBCAPS INSTALLED. THE EXTERIOR CHROME BUMPERS AND TRIM ARE IN NICE CONDITION AND POLISHED GREAT AS PICTURED. THE UNDERBODY IS SOLID AS PICTURED AND SHOWS ONLY NORMAL SIGNS OF WEAR FROM AGE AND MILES.THE INTERIOR IS CLEAN AND YOU CAN TELL ITS BEEN WELL CARED FOR AND GARAGE KEPT. THE SEATS ARE BLACK WITH WHITE TRIM AND IN NICE CONDITION. THE DASH, CARPET AND REST OF INTERIOR ARE IN NICE CONDITION AS WELL SHOWING ONLY NORMAL WEAR THAT MATCHES THE YEAR AND LOW MILES. THE INTERIOR IS NOT PERFECT BUT VERY NICE AND SOLID FOR ORIGINAL UNRESTORED.THIS IS A BEAUTIFUL 1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD CONVERTIBLE THAT WOULD MAKE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION.SEE OUR 99.9% POSTIVE FEEDBACK AND BID WITH CONFIDENCE.
