With proper V8 power, iconic continental kit, and hallmark porthole hardtop, the total appeal of this 1956 Ford Thunderbird is as clear as black and white, literally. This was born a Raven Black car, and you already know how desirable that is. And the paint was refreshed later in life so that it can still give off a nice shine today. One of the reasons why black is so desirable is because it makes for the ideal backdrop to make all the brightwork stand out even more. It helps show off the sporty side with dual bullets on the front bumper, hood scoop trim, faux side vents, and a rear bumper with integrated exhaust tips. And this one really is complete, right down to the factory wheel covers. But owning a first-gen T-bird is also about elegance. That's why you have the continental kit on the rear, fender skirts, and the ultra-desirable accessory hard top. And of course, no classic presentation is complete without whitewalls. The two-tone black and white interior coordinates with the black exterior and whitewalls to give you a total package that's as elegant as a tuxedo. So you'll love driving with the top down/off. This has all the right classic details you love, like the plexiglass speedometer, vintage steering wheel with Ford crest in the center, and the machine turned panel that flows from the doors and across the dash. There's an upgraded AM/FM digital tuner that gives you a retro look, but a modern digital tuner. It's great for listening to your favorite music on a top-down Sunday drive. And if that journey turns wet, you have the folding top to keep out the rain. Under the hood is the ""Thunderbird Special"" 292 cubic inch V8, which is believed to be the original to the car. It looks great with the bold red block, pie dish air topper, and Thunderbird valve covers. It also shows the right signs of good maintenance, including a newer fuel pump, coil, and battery. It's a strong runner, and you get maximum control over it all thanks to the three-speed manual transmission. The consignor even claims the low mileage odometer to reflect actual miles. This is the T-bird with all the right look and pieces you want. So you know you don't want this deal to slip away. Call today!
