Ford Thunderbird, 1955
Ford Thunderbird, year 1955. Colour yellow combined with a two tone (yellow / black) leathercloth interior, black carpet and a black soft-top. The legendary Ford Thunderbird was introduced in the year 1955. With 16.000 sold examples in the first year the Thunderbird outsold the Chevrolet Corvette comfortably. The presented Ford Thunderbird was extensively and body off restored in the past (chassis, body, interior, suspension and mechanical components) and the original 6 Volt electrics were converted to 12 Volts. The automobile is in a wonderful and particularly good condition with slight traces of use. The car shows all the special original details and badges which are in perfect shape. The Ford Thunderbird features a 292 cu (4785 cc) V8 engine mated to an automatic gearbox. The engine runs like new and the automatic gearbox shifts perfectly. This Thunderbird features a power adjustable seat, an original 6 Volts AM radio (currently not connected to the 12 Volt system) and white side-wall tyres. This is one of the legendary American Classics!
