Our Dallas City showroom is thrilled to offer this a stunning 1955 Ford Thunderbird that is very much original and known history. The Thunderbird was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. No one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird's first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a "personal luxury vehicle." This Torch Red beauty is a fine example of that first year, a great representation of the epic Thunderbird line. With a short and stout body, lovely curves, and a removable hard top, it's a real looker. Some of the modern touches to this T-Bird includes the wide white wall radial tires. This Thunderbird for sale is powered by a legendary 292 cubic inch Y-Block V8 and is accompanied by a 3 Speed auto transmission, which makes it a fun a nice cruiser for anyone and everyone. The red interior was reupholstered, and the carpet was replaced giving the interior the look it did coming right out of the showroom back in 1955. This fun driving 1955 Thunderbird convertible for sale is ready to head on down to the local cruise-in, drive-in movie or road trip! The current owner has had it since 1974. Complete restoration done to original specifications. Pictures and complete rebuild receipts available. Black soft top and restored red hard top.
