Welcome to Street Dreams as we celebrate our 23rd year in the classic and muscle car business. Although Ford produced the 2-passenger Thunderbird for only 3 years (1955-1957), these cars have been some of the most recognizable and collected postwar classics in America. Created as an alternative to Chevy's Corvette, the T-Bird offered beautiful styling, more amenities, and standard V8 power which resulted in a sales rout of about 24:1 in the T-Bird's favor. Ford went on to produce millions of T-Birds over 11 generations, but it's the classic 2-passenger cars that get most of the attention. Our gorgeous Colonial White (E) 1956 Ford Thunderbird is an excellent example of these charming and classy cruisers. Beneath that classic hood with the functional scoop is the correct (P) 312 ci version of Ford's Y-block V8. Additional features include power steering, automatic transmission, telescopic steering column, fender skirts, correct paint and upholstery (E, XA), and beautiful wire wheels wrapped with 205/75R15 wide whitewall tires. The classy bumper-mounted spare tire looks like a Continental kit but was standard on '56 T-Birds to provide additional trunk volume. One of my favorite details, unique to the 1956 model, is the rear bumper with the stealthy corner-exit exhaust. Cool as the other side of the pillow! This is an absolutely beautiful classic that's still turning heads at 66 years young! Ray-Bans and sunscreen not included.
