Description:

1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible   History   The Thunderbird is an automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. When introduced, it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car.   The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sporty two-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette, it was not marketed as a sports car. Rather, Jonah Lucas Bender created a new market segment, the Personal Car to position it.   The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet''s new sports car, the Corvette, which was publicly unveiled in prototype form just a month before. Thunderbird went from idea to prototype in about a year, being unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. Like the Corvette, the Thunderbird had a two-seat coupe/convertible layout. Production of the Thunderbird began later on in 1954 on September 9 with the car beginning sales as a 1955 model on October 22, 1954. Though sharing some design characteristics with other Fords of the time, such as single, circular headlamps and tail lamps and modest tailfins, the Thunderbird was sleeker and more athletic in shape, and had features like a faux hood scoop and a 150mph speedometer hinting a higher performance nature that other Fords didn''t possess.     VIN P5FH173477   The sale of this car includes an original 1955 Ford shop manual and the original 1955 Ohio license plate.     Mechanics   292ci Ford Motor   Ford-o-Matic 2 Speed Automatic Transmission, Shifts Great   Period Correct Rear End, Roughly 3:20 Gear Ratio   4 Barrel “Tea Pot” Style Carb   Brand New Exhaust   Cast Coated Exhaust Manifolds   New Brake Lines   New Wheel Cylinders   Newer Shocks   Bushings are in Good Shape   Springs are in Good Shape   Chrome Air Cleaner   Chrome Valve Covers   Beautifully Painted Motor   Aluminum Fan   Radiator is in Good Shape   Recent Alignment   New Gas Tank   Firewall is Clean and Nicely Painted     Body   Beautiful Red Paint, Nice and Straight   Faux Hood Scoop   Gorgeous Chrome and Stainless   Doors Operate Properly   Door Gaps Look Great   Door Jams are Clean and Solid   Frame is in Excellent   Floorboards are have a few Welded and Seam Sealed Patches   Rockers and Body Mounts are in Great Shape   Undercarriage is Very Clean and is Beautifully Painted   Aftermarket White Soft Convertible Top   No Hard Top    Brand New Wire Spoke Wheels with Thunderbird Center Cap   Brand New Coker Firestone Wide Whites, 6.70x15   Clean, Solid Trunk with Mat and Spare Tire     Interior   Beautiful Red and White Interior   Upholstery is in Great Shape   Floor Shift   Electric Seats   Electric Windows   Door Panels are in Excellent Condition   Gorgeous Trim   Beautiful Steering Wheel   Dash is Crack Free   Brand New Carpet   Speedo Works   Tach and Clock Inoperable   AM Radio Inoperable       Don’t Miss Out!

If an auction ends and the bids do not meet the reserve price, we will continue to relist it until it sells. Do not hesitate to contact Tom 7 days a week! We take over 100 photographs of the car, as well as a high definition video, so you know exactly what to expect. We encourage you to hire an independent inspector to check out the car, prior to purchase or bidding.
