1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible

Why This Car Is Special

The Ford Thunderbird was a rear wheel drive automobile which was manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury car.

We have a frame-on restoration of a numbers matching 1956 Ford Thunderbird here at Skyway Classics that is in gorgeous original color of Colonial White with the two-tone aqua/white interior trim, Continental Kit on the rear, and the white Porthole hardtop.

It received a restoration by the owner and the chassis was sand blasted underneath, painted and detailed to look as nice as the rest of the car. The sale also includes a lot of the old parts taken off during the restoration.

Mechanical Specs

Ours has what appears to be the original engine in a super restored engine compartment with the Optional Hi-Performance 312 Y-Block V-8 Engine, automatic transmission, and all the factory correct hose, clamps, cast iron factory exhaust manifolds, red painted block and intake, factory fuel lines, and accessories.

It has the factory chrome dress up kit with aluminum finned Thunderbird valve covers, a chrome correct factory chrome open-element air cleaner assembly that gets fresh air through the fully functional hood scoop, dual exhaust system, and wears a set of stock steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and white wall tires.

Interior

You will like the pleated Aqua and White vinyl interior with door panels and dash that match. It is complete with the matching aqua colored steering wheel, chrome floor shifter, air conditioning, seat belts, radio, and the gauges are in original condition and look great in the machine turned dash, including the speedometer and clock.

The floor has black carpet with floor mats and the trunk has correct factory trunk mats too.

Exterior

The bodywork, fit, and finish are nicely done in Colonial White and has the Thunderbird's famous "porthole" hardtop that comes in white on top of the car and the iconic spare tire Continental Kit on the chrome rear bumper.

The graceful fins and body lines has straight panels and the taillight end caps round out the rear end of the car. Other details like the Thunderbird badges, fender skirts, rear bumper with integrated exhaust outlets, and the stainless trim on the fender skirts are all great.

Conclusion

The 1956 frame-on restoration of a numbers matching 1956 Ford Thunderbird we have here at Skyway Classics is fun to drive anywhere and enjoy. The iconic of the "Porthole” top as well as the rear spare kit will get all the looks you can ever imagine at car cruises and shows, or just driving down the road enjoying the top, up or down.
