West Coast Classics are proud to present a great daily driving and rust free example of this 1955 Ford Thunderbird with both factory hard top and a new Black soft top with a rebuilt 292 4 BBL 198HP V8 engine matched to a 'Ford-o-matic' automatic transmission in it's original factory 'Raven Black' color and 'Black & White' interior and with factory specifications and options including; 'Ford-o-matic' automatic transmission, Telescopic steering, Power Steering, Power Front Disc Brakes, fender skirts, tach, clock, Power 4-way driver seat, heater and defroster, AM radio and with highly desirable and striking Thunderbird chrome wheels!
One of the earliest collectibles amongst post-war cars, the two seater Thunderbirds of 1955-57 have if anything only gained in popularity as the years have passed which inspired the tribute models built between the years 2002-05. They were originally a sales triumph over Chevrolet's Corvette with clean styling, creature comforts and of course V8 refinement.
This particular example was recently restored by its previous owner in it's original factory 'Raven Black' (color code A) color paint with matching original 'Black & White' (trim code A) interior and new chrome with the floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas solid and rust-free and the car has it's original factory matching color hard top and 292 4V V8 engine which has been reportedly rebuilt and which is obviously therefore extremely strong and powerful and sounds magnificent!
This particular car drives very well with the transmission shifting smoothly through all the gears and the car has four relatively new wide white wall tires.
This is a great opportunity to own a great daily driving 1955 Thunderbird with the 292 4BBL V8 engine and loaded with power front disc brakes, power steering, power seat, AM radio, skirts, heater & defroster and two tops in the most striking and desirable of original factory color combinations!
