Now for sale in the Houston showroom is this 1956 Ford Thunderbird convertible. This Ford T-Bird for sale was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette. 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 Black beauty is a solid example of the second year "baby birds". With a short and stout body, lovely curves, and a convertible top, it's a real looker. This Thunderbird for sale is powered by a 312 CID V8, backed by a 5-speed manual transmission. These motors were known for reliability, impressive torque, and unique sound. The 5-speed with overdrive really makes it a nice cruiser. With its true dual exhaust, it also has a throaty rumble. With new American Racing aluminum wheels wrapped in blackwall radial tires, this T-Bird has a unique retro "stealth muscle" look. You can truly understand why Ford motor company tried to emphasize the luxury aspect of the 1956 T-Bird, by peeking in the car, then taking a seat on its newly-redone red and white leather seating. This solid 1956 Thunderbird convertible for sale is ready for show and go. Options on this 1956 Thunderbird for sale include Vintage A/C (R134 compliant), retro-styled AM/FM radio, Manual Convertible Top, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Leather Interior, Radial Tires, and Custom A-R Aluminum Wheels. 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!
