This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. Although many will compare the early T birds or baby birds to the Corvette that is not what Ford was shooting for. The Bird was supposed to be an upscale 2 seater convertible and created a whole new segment known as the personal luxury car. It would be loved by car people but practicality was not one of its strong suites which would kill the original design in just 3 years. Though it would go on for quite some time and grow in both popularity and size these baby birds are the ones that still have the collector’s heart. This 55 is a splendid example of what the collector market is searching for. The red paint is silky smooth and is probably better than you would get from the factory back then. Of course, the white hard top is a great contrast and yet still the best part of it all is the car is exactly the way it left the factory. Yes, this is an original red/white car which in many opinions is the most desirable combo. With all the chrome accents, there is no way you will go unnoticed in this red beauty. The interior is finished back to the way it was as well with the powered bench seat covered in matching red and white vinyl. Take the hardtop off and you’re good to go on that relaxing Sunday cruise but you always take the chance of running into some rain. With this baby bird having a soft top stored behind the seat the problem is solved. Tilt the hood forward and the classic Y block is right at home and looks as if the car was made around it. Maintaining the original 6 Volt/Generator setup this Red bird is ready to fly. The automatic transmission or Ford-o-Matic shifts out nicely especially under hard acceleration. If you have wanted a great car to add to your collection or just a T bird fanatic either way this little drop top is ideal. Options on this 1955 Ford Thunderbird include; Vinyl Interior, Power Seats, Manual Convertible Top, Hub Caps, and Wide White Wall Radial Tires.
