Merchants Auto Group is pleased to present this 1955 Ford Thunderbird 2DR Coupe SE HT/Convertible for your consideration at our Cicero Indiana showroom. Our Ford Thunderbird is a California Car and hit the market in 1955 making it a beautiful piece of Americana they were considered to be direct competition to the Chevrolet Corvette. While the Corvette aimed to impress with performance the T-bird was all about style and substance. This '55 Thunderbird was a new generation of automobiles in the United States and aimed to take on the European market. Dubbed the first personal car by Ford it was described as a direct descendant of the 1930s roadsters and was aimed as a brisk grand tourer. It was light for its era and the powerful V8 could propel it to around 120 mph. The first year (1955) Thunderbird had a tremendous success selling 16155 cars compared to just 700 Corvettes sold. The Thunderbirds were marketed towards their features rather than performance despite having a 292 cu in V8 automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. 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 car offered here is a very straight forward running and driving example that has been well kept received paint and attention over the years and has an excellent core structure. You will appreciate its original factory white paint which is paired with a coordinating black and white leather interior. This T-bird comes with its factory hard and soft top. This is a California car that retains a very original and pristine core structure as the frame and underside appear very original. Features included on our T-bird are: classic black and white bench seat wheel covers fender skirts signature through bumper exhaust power steering telescope steering and an electric seat. Inside the trunk shows all original condition and accessories including the jack and spare tire. This 55 T-bird is a beautiful example of a classic luxury roadster and is ready to run.
