Gateway Classic Cars of Louisville is proud to present this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria. The 55 Crown Victoria was a direct shot at Chevy’s new line-up of vehicles. The body itself was very similar and with a few different engine options they were well received by the public. The color palette that Ford would bring out that year would really put an exclamation point on there new line. The most exotic and hate or love it had to be pink though. It was a definite in your face and most absolutely loved it and is still sought after today. This restored and gorgeous example is one of the nicest I have seen. Together for about 4 years now the car has had enough miles to work on bugs but was really used for just local car shows and events. During the restoration they decided to put a little more power to this 55 dropping in a 351W to give it plenty get up and go. The automatic transmission was gone through and shits out nicely just as it should. The exterior is where this beauty really shines. The paint is clean and shows nicely with the pink and white bringing you back to a different time. The chrome on the car shows nicely with no major defects it really puts the exclamation point on the build. Inside you are adorned by a plush interior with the white and pink flip flopped making it a great contrast to the outside. If you have been thinking about getting into one of these cool classics in what many claim the greatest color scheme this beauty is the one. Options on this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria include, AM Radio, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, White Walls, and Radial Tires. This 1955 Ford Crown Victoria is for sale in our Louisville Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD Video at www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

Thank you for your interest in this sharp 1955 Ford Thunderbird presented by Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa. One of the most beautiful pieces of Americana, they were considered to be direct competition to the Chevrolet Corvette. Helping spawn a new generation of automobiles in the United States, and aimed to take on the European market, the Ford Thunderbird was powered by a 292 CID V8, which gave the already smaller, lighter car the power it needed to make for both an excellent road racer as well as the perfect car for older couples to sit back and enjoy a movie at the drive-in. Mated to the engine is a 2-speed automatic transmission, which allowed the car for fairly smooth shifting, but in the higher gear allowed the vehicle to cruise at highway speeds without drinking too much gas. The interior of this car is a beautiful red and white two tone seating, with red carpets throughout. The hard-top is painted in white to give the car a two-tone look. Take the top off to enjoy the beautiful weather in absolute style! The exterior is painted to match the interior, with a stunning bright red paint job with a new black top that really gives the car a high quality 1950's kind of feel. Driving a 1955 Ford Thunderbird is truly an experience one simply cannot explain, these cars are the truest form of Americana one can find. Options include AM Radio, Hub Caps, Seat Belts, Vinyl Interior, Wide White Walls, Wire Wheels, Power Steering, Power Brakes and Power seat. To see this car in better detail, including over 100+ high definition videos and a full length high definition video, please go to www.gatewayclassiccars.com.

1955 Ford Thunderbird

1955 Ford Thunderbird


Engine: 292 V8
Transmission: 3-speed Over-Drive
Mileage: 68,313 ( undocumented )

We are happy to offer for sale at our Gateway Classic Cars Showroom in our Saint Louis this 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This first year Thunderbird is painted in a rare Goldenrod Yellow with a white soft top, white hardtop with black and white two-toned interior. Power comes from a 292-cubic inch V8, the only available engine for 1955. This one is equipped with a manual 3 speed transmission and optional over drive. The over drive is a neat unit. Once in 3rd gear and youre ready, pull the T handle beneath the dash and you're in! Other equipment includes power seats, wide white wall radial tires and a white hardtop. To add some personal touches, the previous owner decided to paint the hard-top white as opposed to keeping it body color as the factory would have painted it. The soft top is also white which would have been black fabric from the factory. These personal touches give the car a unique look and help it stand out from other '55 Thunderbirds. This is easily reversible if someone chooses. Recent maintenance includes new tires, new clutch and a rebuilt carburetor. In 1955 Ford introduced the Thunderbird to knock a dent into Corvette sales. Ford accomplished this with flying colors. 1955 Corvette production reached 700 units compared to Ford's whopping 16,155! Chevrolet needed some serious help if they were going to save the Corvette. Eventually Ford decided to lean more towards the luxury side and away from the performance side that the Corvette was pursuing. The Thunderbird has had a long and interesting run over the years. However, there's no mistaking the first run of the 1955 through 1957 T-Birds. They are the most collectible of any Thunderbird and will always be the most collectible. These hard and soft top equipped Thunderbirds are very cool, giving you the coupe and convertible feel all in one car. Call our St. Louis showroom for more information on this early T-bird at 618-271-3000 or email STL@gatewayclassiccars.com. To view HD photos and video, visit www.gatewayclassiccars.com

1972 Ford LTD Brougham


Engine: 400 CID V8
Transmission: 3 Speed Automatic
Mileage: 49,948 ( actual )

Now available in our DFW-Showroom is this luxurious 1972 Ford LTD. LTD’s are great mixture of luxury, comfort, & power, which was the goal when introduced by Ford all the way back in 1965. This is because it has enough room to seat 5-6 comfortably, yet still enough power to zip around. 1972 models were virtually the same as the '71s, although the bumper now stretched across the lower section of the grille. A new rear bumper integrated the taillights; also, in the rear, the design of the trunk lid was squared off. Due to decreased demand in the segment, 1972 was the final model year for the LTD convertible. This LTD is painted a beautiful baby-blue, with an original top, which remains in very good shape, especially when you consider its age. The interior also appears to be original cloth in good shape, with paisley designs on the lower-half, which was very popular choice back in the early-mid 70’s. All this is powered around by 400-V8 2 Barrel motor/ 3-speed automatic, that gives you plenty of power to haul around a full set of passengers or speed around alone. Finally, my favorite part to this vehicle, as all this sets on fancy set of white-wall tires and Ford Motor Company wheels, with a crown in the center, marking this vehicle is fit for a King or Queen. Is that you? For additional information on this 1972 Ford LTD, email us at dallas@gatewayclassiccars.com or call 817-310-9400.
