We are pleased to offer this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible for purchase. The Thunderbird was a rushed development in response to the Corvette, but then ended up as a personal luxury roadster instead. The first year (1955) Thunderbird was a tremendous success selling 16,155 cars compared to just 700 Corvette's sold. The Thunderbirds were marketed towards their features rather than performance despite having a 292 cu in V8. The 1955 to 1957 years were just 2-seaters and remained that way until 2002 (which were modeled after the 1st generation Thunderbirds whom many believe are the pinnacle of the line).

The example offered here is powered by what appears to be a 292 V8 paired with an automatic. The engine runs smoothly and the transmission shifts as it should. Highlights include power brakes, power steering, whitewall tires, aluminum intake, Holley 4 barrel carburetor. The black and white vinyl is a power seat but does not work. The car does not have a soft top. The first generation Tbirds remain one of the most collectible cars to this day. Don't miss your opportunity to own this affordable example.
