Offered here is a first generation 1956 Ford Thunderbird 2-Door Convertible that has been in our clients possession since 1980. After 37 cherished years of ownership, he has decided to part with ways with the car due to knee surgery. It has not been an easy decision but he hopes the car goes to a new home that can enjoy as much as he has.
The car is powered by the more desirable powerplant: numbers matching 312cid/215hp 4bbl V8 engine with dress up kit mated to a floor-shifted automatic transmission. It is painted in white with a very neat red and white interior with a white removable hard top with the iconic port holes. Noteworthy factory features on this classic T-Bird include power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seats, telescopic steering wheel, aluminum valve covers, chrome air cleaner, and the desirable continental kit. Many parts have been replaced or rebuilt over the years, such as a full engine and transmission rebuild, starter, generator, distributor, carburetor, new gas tank, new front suspension, re-chromed bumpers and window trim, new seat covers and door panels, added seat belts, 5 Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, Diamond Black wide whitewall radial tires, and modern stereo installed in glovebox with 6-disc CD changer behind seat.
This is a beautiful first generation T-Bird with decades of ownership history. You will not be disappointed in this car. Starts on command and drives true. Call or e-mail if interested. Thank you for looking.
