Description for Ford Thunderbird 1955

THIS IS A GREAT EXAMPLE OF A 1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD " BABY BIRD" IN ITS ORIGINAL CONDITION. IT COMES EQUIPPED WITH ALL THE EXTRAS: AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION POWER SEAT AND POWER WINDOWS. IT DOES HAVE POWER STEERING AND POWER BRAKES.THE ENGINE IS THE 292 V8 WHICH WAS THE ENGINE THE FIRST YEAR. I HAVE BEEN TOLD THE NUMBER 2 BUILT 55 TBIRD WAS EQUIPPED THE SAME AND WAS THE SAME COLOR COMBINATION. THIS IS THE ORIGINAL COLOR COMBO FROM THE FACTORY. AT SOME POINT I'M SURE IT WENT THROUGH A RESTORATION BEFORE I PURCHASED IT. I DECIDED TO REPLACE ALL THE FRONT END PARTS SHOCKS AND SPRINGS .REPLACED HOSES PLUGS WIRES RADIATOR BATTERY ETC. I ALSO WANTED TO CLEAN OFF OLD UNDER COATING UNDERNEATH TO PRESERVE THE FLOORBOARDS. TO DO THAT THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION WERE REMOVED TO DO THE JOB CORRECTLY. A LIGHTER COAT OF UNDERCOATING WAS THEN APPLIED AND THEN RE INSTALLED THE ENGINE AND TRANSMISSION. THE BABY BIRD STARTS UP AND DRIVES WELL AND IS QUIET EVEN WITH THE EXHAUST HAVING TWO LITTLE HOLES IN THE REAR OF THE EXHAUST PIPES SHOWN IN ONE OF THE PICS. NO SMOKE AND NO LEAKS FROM THE ENGINE. THE SOFT TOP IS FOLDED IN PLACE BEHIND THE SEAT AND IT HAS BEEN REPLACED BEFORE I BOUGHT IT AND THE PLASTIC GLASS IS CLEAR. SINCE THEN THE TBIRD HAS BEEN IN MY TWO CAR GARAGE BY ITSELF COVERED . I HAVE NOT HAD TIME TO ENJOY THE TBIRD AS MUCH AS I WOULD LIKE DUE TO OTHER PROJECTS I HAVE. THAT IS WHY I AM SELLING HER TO SOMEONE WHO WOULD ENJOY THIS RARE VINTAGE CAR. THE PICS I TOOK OF HER WERE DONE IN 10 MINUTES WITHOUT WASHING IT SINCE IT WAS COVERED. SOME OF THE CLOSE UPS ON THE SIDES SHOW REFLECTIONS OF THE GRAVEL IN THE DRIVE WAY. I DID TAKE A VIDEO WALK AROUND THAT SHOWS NO IMPERFECTIONS. I STATED ELSEWHERE IN THIS POST THE PREVIOUS OWNER PUT A CD PLAYER IN WHICH I WOULD RECOMMEND TO BE REPLACED WITH AN ORIGINAL RADIO WHICH ARE AVAILABLE ON LINE. EXACT REPLACEMENT EXHAUST IS AVAILABLE ALSO ON LINE FOR 400 DOLLARS. THIS WOULD BE A GOOD INVESTMENT AND A FUN CAR TO HAVE. BID WITH CONFIDENCE!!! HERE IS THE VIDEO LINK FOR THE WALK AROUND.
