1955 Ford Thunderbird

Why This Car Is Special

A first-year 1955 Ford Thunderbird remains one of the most collectable '50s cars, and it's easy to understand why. The one we have at Skyway Classics has the V8 engine, the great color combo of red exterior and interior, and very desirable because of the original owner is selling this icon of a car. We just added brand new tires to it and also went over all the electronics including the power seat and see is good to go.

Mechanical

This T-Bird has had a complete original restoration on the hardtop. Under the hood is the Thunderbird Special ECS code 312 cubic inch V8 engine. The correct factory painted red on the engine block and intake and it has Thunderbird's special valve covers, all other factory engine components, and the pie dish air topper with correct diaphragm surrounding half of it. This motor inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales out of the dual exhaust.

The V8 is backed with an automatic transmission and underneath is as clean, painted, and detailed as up above. It runs and drives exceptionally well.

Interior

The red and white interior was re-upholstered, the dash repainted red with all the correct gauges and radio, and the red carpet was replaced giving the interior the look it did coming right out of the showroom back in 1955.

A complete restoration was done to original specifications including the painted-restored red hard top.

Exterior

There are no other 1955 Thunderbirds that are more desirable than this first-ever Red on Red T-Bird. The chrome really sets the Thunderbird apart as does the wraparound front bumper, wide mesh grille, subtle hood scoop, and the twin tailpipes integrated through the rear bumper guards.

The factory wheels and Ford hubcaps are correct as is the wide whitewall tires. The wheel well fender flares give it the final correct look too.

Conclusion

This a stunning 1955 Ford Thunderbird that we have here at Skyway Classics is very nice and restored. The Thunderbird was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and no one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird's first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1.

This T-Bird is more than just nostalgic, it is iconic and a car that will evoke envy from everyone who sees you driving it.
