Regarding This Vehicle

1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

Very nicely sorted T-Bird in an excellent color combination!  Features include Thunderbird 312 V8, automatic, Master-Guide power steering, Swift-Sure power brakes, power seat, soft & hard  tops, and radial whitewalls!  Excellent road going condition! 

Released in 1955, the Thunderbird had created a new vehicle niche; the personal luxury car. Equipped with performance motors, lots of standard features, plush interiors and comfortable suspensions, the Thunderbird was in a class all its own. For many, it was the quintessential road trip car for two. As with most automakers in the 50s, the car was drastically updated every year, with new sheet metal and features. The second year of production debuted with the spare tire absent from the inner trunk and mounted as a continental style spare for additional trunk space, along with the exhaust now existing through the rear bumper at the corners. Hardtops were now available with optional porthole windows for better visibility when in use. And for added cabin comfort, a side vent was incorporated to the front fender to flow air into the cabin on hot days, along with side wind wings, sun visors, 12-volt electrical system, and round heater control knobs. Sales totaled only 15,631, fewest of all baby Birds, making them highly collectible to this day!

Featured here is a 1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible finished in a factory color code Z- Thunderbird Green (Sage) over XF-interior code of Green & White. A wonderful host of options start with a powerful P-code 312ci V8 offering 225 horsepower mated to a Fordomatic automatic transmission and 3.31:1 rear axle ratio! Optional equipment continues with Master-Guide power steering, Swift-Sure power brakes, 4-way power seat, storable soft top in white, porthole auxiliary hardtop, back-up lights, outside rearview mirror, Magic-Aire heater/defrost, oil bath air cleaner, wide whitewall tires updated to radials measuring 205/75R15, and modern AM/FM/Cassette radio!

This example appears to be a great blend of original and cosmetically restored. The chrome shows as very well kept original while the exterior paint has been nicely refinished. Inside, the carpet & interior upholstery is new. The under hood presentation has been beautifully detailed with factory chrome engine dress up kit and polished finned aluminum valve covers. This example was built the 14th day of December and delivered new to the New York sales district. It was later located by the St. Louis Car Museum in Lakeland, Florida. Showing 90,242 miles on the odometer, it is believed to be actual, although no formal documentation was provided to support such a claim. It runs and drives quite well, and would make for a terrific investment for any driver or parade going enthusiast! A wonderful color combination not often found on the market, so please act quickly. Please feel free to call with additional questions.
