The right classic car, coupled with lovely weather, is nothing short of driving nirvana. As you drive by, realizing that what surrounds you has been serving its function for the past 50+ years is a sight to behold. The 1956 Ford Thunderbird we have today perfectly represents the 50s. It is a working example that blends the essence of driving, artistic design, and that warm feeling of history working in symphony. With a reported 16,905 miles on the clock, this original example comes included with its original invoice and shop manuals as an added treat to a treat in itself.
With American cars from the 50s and their designs being on hyperdrive, standing out from all the iconic cars available on dealer floors was a tough ask. The Ford Thunderbird defined 50s automotive design and is brought to life with this car dressed up in black and sporting a white convertible top. Step back and look at this car in person; everything is in check, from the gleaming paint to all the cars chrome in place; this is due to the current owner reporting a body-off restoration. In terms of shoes, this American classic sits on its factory hubcaps wrapped with whitewall tires; taking this car's wheel game up a notch is a continental kit at the rear of the car. The two-tone black and white interior of this 1956 Ford Thunderbird is a fine blend of comfort and function. Once you are in and comfy with the bench seats, you are treated to a factory interior that blends in nickel and leather. Furthermore, would you like to compliment a smooth ride with some tunes? The AM push-button radio comes in handy.
While it hails from the decade of land yachts and cruising, the first-generation Ford Thunderbird was performance oriented with a lightweight body and a V8 motor. It's hard to get past the 50s styling on this 1956 Ford Thunderbird, but once you do, the 312ci V8 motor makes itself known. A quick look around the engine bay and features like the Ford Thunderbird valve covers provide a touch of originality. Power is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic transmission.
