Absolutely Stunning 1959 Ford Thunderbird

History
The Ford Thunderbird is 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.

Although the 1955-57 Thunderbird was a success, Ford executives, particularly Robert McNamara, were concerned that the car's position as a two-seater limited its sales potential. As a result, the car was redesigned as a four-seater for 1958.

For 1959, the car received a new grille and a 352 cu in V8 with a 3-speed automatic transmission. With sale numbers skyrocketing upward of 70,000 cars sold (67,456 to be exact) it was becoming an icon, somewhat of a status symbol for that generation. This car was not only selling like crazy, but it was making history by becoming Motor Trend's first ever individual model to be given the title of “Car of the Year”.

Features & Options
You can own that Car Of The Year because we have a 1959 Thunderbird at Skyway Classics. It is painted in an eye-catching White with a padded Red Vinyl Top and a stunning red and white interior. The body has great chrome and trim as well as rear fender skirts.

The Thunderbird was Ford's most expensive model offered for sale in '59. Ford began offering leather seats in the Thunderbird to further personify the “Personal Luxury” feel that started the Thunderbird revolution. Ours has those as the interior trim is gorgeous with the two-tone red and white leather seats, power driver's seat, white steering wheel, ice-cold air conditioning, console, gauges, chrome dash, and red Ford floor mats. Even the trunk is restored and has a new trunk mat, spare tire, and more.

The car rides on wide whitewall tires and Cragar wire wheels and is really a car everyone looks at and wants to see it up close.

It has the H-Code FE-series 352 V8 Performance engine that has 300 Horse with it 4-barrel carb, correct painted valve covers and air cleaner, and factory cast iron exhaust. The transmission is the factory original 3-Speed Cruise-O-Matic.
