Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

Today i am listing a car for a good friend of mine. he has no experience with Ebay and i am helping him out. He is selling it, It is his own car and it comes with a clean CA title in his name.This gorgeous 1955 T-bird has been totally restored and upgraded from scratch. It was a very well documented frame off restoration with no money spared anywhere. Every nut, bolt, seal and gasket was removed and the car was taken off the frame for paint and body restoration. Every step was documented with pictures. There is and was no rust on this car anywhere. The whole car was painted in Mustang hello with base and clear coat. It looks amazing.After the paint the car was set back on a restored and painted original frame. A new 428 Cobra engine and C-6 transmission was installed to make up for the relative lack of power of these gorgeous 1955 t-birds. All work was done properly by professionals and the rest of the car was upgraded as well to facilitate the extra power. Following parts were upgraded and installed.Continental torque converter 12'' F33 Rev C/SRear u-joint (driveshaft) Moog #3531968 Mustang speedometer cable9'' 1967 Ford galaxy rear end (Narrowed) and brakes31 spline axles3.25 posi center section1972 Ford Mustang floor shift with neutral safety switchMagnum 11'' disc brake on front end with 80-87 Camaro calipersHedman headers # 89100classic instruments with traditional gauges160 Hi-Flow thermostatHI-FLOW waterpump1960's Corvette radiator expansion tankMallory dual point distributorEdelbrock performance cam and liftersEdelbrock intake manifold F427750 Holley carburetor model 3310the original air-conditioning has been upgraded to R134 and works great
All seals, gaskets, nuts and bolts were replaced. All the chromes was re-done, polished and re-installed. The whole interior was re-done as wel, as the many pictures will show. Even the convertible soft top ist new. It has been driven less than 3000 miles since totalrestoration.This car is absolutely gorgeous from every angle and there is nothing that it needs. It sounds amazing, starts up right away and has lots of power. There are no leaks of any kind and everything works the way it is supposed to . Even the air conditioning on this 64 year old car blows cold. All the power windows are working well and the gauges function as intended. There is literally nothing this car needs. just sit in and drive it. Over $100k and countless hours were spent restoring and upgrading this gorgeous T-Bird.Please check out all the extra 87 pictures after this write up, as they can describe this car better than i can. If you have any questions or would like to come out and see i, please send me a note through Ebay and i or the owner will get back to you promptly.Please have your funding in order and do all your "due diligence " BEFORE placing a bid. this 64 year old car will be sold "as is " and without a warranty. I would prefer to sell it locally to somebody who can come out and see i, but i would also be helpful with shipping arrangements for any out of town winning bidders.Thank you for looking at my auction and good luck !!
