Set out to be "a personal car of distinction," the Ford Thunderbird was the company's response to the Corvette. Although not direct competitors, the vehicles had a lot of similarities. Both had powerful V8 engines strapped onto them, were two-seaters, and delivered plenty of power to the wheels on command. But the Thunderbird catered more to the class of driver who appreciates more comfort and luxury for the accomplished enthusiast. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is for the enthusiast. A gorgeous specimen that has survived the test of time with a bit of elbow grease, this particular vehicle is in excellent condition, even with the clock on the engine reporting 16,500 miles. The current owner says the vehicle sports many newer parts, but the original carb is included in the sale, as is the hard top, which the current owner reports to be in excellent condition.
Sticking to a classic exterior look, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird sports a white and red paint job that fits the car perfectly. The low-sitting, wide-body set the car in a sporty stance, hinting at the true power hidden under the hood. Some Ford and Thunderbird branding adorn the vehicle, which follows a design language that, although it isn't as avant-garde as the first Corvette, has a sense of elegance and sophistication that appeals to the more sophisticated enthusiast. The current owner reports that the tires the car sits on are oversized radial tires, and they work well with the wire rims that the current owner reports the vehicle to come with wire rims. Inside, the red-and-white aesthetic continues. Very little has been done to tamper with the original design and aesthetic of the vehicle. However, the original interior does come with some compromises. The original clock no longer functions, as does the radio, but an aftermarket unit has been reportedly installed to help keep you entertained while taking this Thunderbird out for a flight.
This 1955 Ford Thunderbird sports a massive 292ci V8 that delivers power to the rear wheels using an automatic transmission. The current owner reports that the vehicle sports an Edelbrock carburetor and that the original will be provided in the sale. The engine roars to life as it does what it was made for, delivering speed without compromising on comfort, and will surely turn heads wherever you will go.
