Gateway Classic Cars of Houston is proud to offer a gorgeous fire engine red 1956 Ford Thunderbird. There's some truth in the fact that some things are just done right the first time around. In the case of the Ford Thunderbird, it doesn't get much better than the first generation. Between 1955 and 1957 the Thunderbird was a small 2 seat roadster which was comparable to the Chevrolet Corvette.

The car has been repainted about 2.5 years ago in the fire engine red you see and it contrasts very well against the white top & two-tone black & red vinyl interior. The cars exterior shows very well with the red glossy paint that gleams in the lights and really looks great out in the sunshine. The bumpers, trim, glass, continental kit on the rear, fender skirts, & the hard top are all in great condition. No dents, dings, or rust to be found on the car.

This pretty 56’ Tbird is equipped with the larger more sought after larger 312 CID V8. The small block V8 runs very well & sounds healthy through the powerband, it is paired to a 2-speed power glide automatic transmission that shifts well. The engine is believed to have been rebuilt at some point in its life as it runs very smoothly. The engine compartment is nicely finished and could easily be displayed at a car cruise.

Looking at the interior you’ll see the multicolor combination of the black & red seats with the silver & black dash & door panels. They are in excellent condition and it looks great. Don’t see this color combo on too many Thunderbirds. With new dash controls, new seat belts, new Vintage AC system that blows cold, you will be ready to hit the road in no time! It sits on steel wheels with chrome hubcaps and sports white wall tires.

This one also has plenty of options: power steering, power brakes, power seats, power windows, continental kit, removable hard top, and even air conditioning. This one has a on the rear to house the spare tire. This restored classic is the perfect for summertime cruises and weekend getaways. You can see this 1956 Ford Thunderbird in greater detail in our Houston showroom or at www.GatewayClassicCars.com. Please contact 832-243-6220 or houston@gatewayclassiccars.com with inquiries.
