Now for sale in the Houston showroom is this 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This Black beauty is a fine example of the first year "baby birds" and a great representation of the epic Thunderbird line. With a short and stout body, lovely curves, and a HARTZ convertible top, it's a real looker.

This Thunderbird for sale is powered by a legendary 292 cubic inch Y-Block V8, which churns out an impressive 198 horsepower. These motors were known for reliability, impressive torque, and unique sound. The engine in this car has been recently rebuilt back to glory less than 1600 miles ago. It's backed by a healthy manual 3-speed transmission with overdrive, which makes it an easy driver and a nice cruiser for anyone and everyone. With chrome wire wheels wrapped in wide whitewall tires, this T-Bird has just as much class as it does sass.

You can truly understand why Ford motor company tried to emphasize the luxury aspect of the 1955 T-Bird, by peeking in the car, then taking a seat.

This gorgeous 1955 Thunderbird convertible for sale is ready for show and go. This Ford T-Bird for sale was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. 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. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a "personal luxury vehicle." This one won’t last long so if you want to see yourself driving this sweet ride to your next car meet or to bring the wife to dinner, you had better call now!

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird convertible for sale has a list of options, which include: AC (blows cold!), AM/FM Radio, power steering, power windows, telescopic wheel, seat belts, classy vinyl interior, and luxurious wide whitewall bias ply tires wrapped around chrome wire wheels. For more information on this 1955 Ford Thunderbird call the Houston Showroom at 832-243-6220 or email houston@gatewayclassiccars.com
