GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird for consideration. This T-Bird comes in a Blue exterior with a white hard top and a white soft top over a Blue interior. The restoration on this T-Bird was completed back in the 1990's and the motor was rebuilt back in 2000. The vehicle also features a winter cover, 2 sets of keys, a newer water pump, a newer battery, drag link and idler arm for front suspension, and a clean title. The engine is a Ford 292 V8 with a 2 speed automatic transmission that starts right up and runs great. Looking at this T-bird gives anybody the feel of the 50's especially the gorgeous blue paint, with all the drivability intact, the looks you hope to find in a first generation T-bird and a full professional detail completed. Please call or email us today for more information on this fine ride!

Ford was looking for something to compete with the Chevrolet Corvette which started to show quickly as a popular segment but didn't want to pursue the sports car necessary but created a segment all of its own. With the clever marketing plan in place, Ford began the production of the Ford Thunderbird in 1955 as a Personal Car segment and although it was very much a sporty two-seater convertible just like the Corvette, it paid more attention to luxury and comfort more so than the competition. This model did not inherit its second row of seats until 1958 and from there it slowly but surely grew in size, generation after generation until 1977 when the larger cars lost their popularity in the market. The Thunderbird was one of the longest lasting nametags for Ford and started strong by selling 23 models for every one Corvette sold when it first hit the market. The only changes completed between its inception model to the 1956 was moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper in order to make more room within the trunk.
