This 1955 Ford Crown Victoria is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The 55 Crown Victoria was a direct shot at Chevy’s new line-up of vehicles. The Crown Victoria would have a very distinct chrome B pillar that ran from one side of the car to the other making it stand out in a crowded marketplace. 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 their new line. This two-tone beauty speaks for itself with its slick black & white paint and endless stainless & chrome trim! The Class and style of the 50's Vicky’s are unsurpassed! This one is powered by a 272 CID "Y block" V8 and sits in a highly detailed, super clean engine bay. The power produced is sent through the original 2 speed automatic transmission. Everyone loves the look of a classic and admires the style of yester year. With all the features offered for that this one is ready for every cruise-in and car show event in comfort and style. The owner states “this old girl drives straight and smooth”. The only reason he is selling it is too many toys and he can’t drive them all! Options for this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria include; AM/FM/CD radio, power brakes, seat belts, Vinyl interior and Biased Ply Tires.. Located in our Louisville Showroom, this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria can be seen including 100+ HD pictures and video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.

Engine: 292 CID V8Transmission: 3-Speed Manual w/OverdriveMileage: 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

Engine: 312 Ford V8Transmission: 3 Speed ManualMileage: 94,299 ( actual )
This Ford Crown Victoria has been well kept and maintained by the same family since it was purchased new way back on August 8th, 1955! Only 94,000 miles have ticked over on this car and only 2,000 since a full rebuild was completed. From 1955 to 1970 this car was driven regularly until it was parked for nearly 30 years before getting pulled back out of the garage and having an extensive restoration done on it in 1998 by a reputable shop in Colorado. The original engine was swapped out for a more powerful 312 cubic inch V8 out of a Thunderbird and was paired up with the standard three-on-the-tree transmission. The black exterior paint was laid over the freshly worked body and still looks excellent 20 years later! The interior matches nicely with a two-tone Black and Gray color combination that really adds to the comfortable floaty ride we have come to expect from a 1950’s car. With a simple turn of the key the V8 comes to life and, with the help of the all new wiring harness installed, you will maintain your peace of mind. During the restoration this Crown Victoria was converted to a 12-Volt system and allowed for a more modern radio to be installed to thoroughly enjoy your cruise. Another significant improvement was replacing the bias ply tires with a set of radial white wall tires allowing it to feel much more controllable. As you ride in this car you will be impressed with how quiet and smooth the ride is. It makes for a great Sunday afternoon cruising car or even a great grocery getter! Since the restoration this vehicle has always been stored in a garage and only taken out to go to the occasional car show where it would gather a crowd. If you are looking for a car that has a great history and is a turnkey classic this is a great option for you! This vehicle is located in our Denver showroom. You can view this 1955 Ford Crown Victoria in greater detail including HD pictures and an HD video of it running and driving at Gatewayclassiccars.com.

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This baby bird is a total frame off restoration with everything being replaced or rebuilt. This stylish yellow and white T-bird is ready to be shown or enjoyed as a Sunday cruiser.

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. The current owner is a collector and has meticulously maintained this baby bird to be kept in amazing condition. The odometer is reading 1,679 which is the miles since the restoration. This car features the period correct and rebuilt 292 wide block V8 engine paired to a redone 3 speed automatic transmission. The yellow and white theme on this car is one of the stylish thunderbird appearances we have had the honor of listing with Gateway Classic Cars. There is a black soft top as well as the painted white hard top. The white wall tires and chrome wire wheels off set the yellow paint perfectly. This T-bird has sharp two tone black and white vinyl interior with an adjustable steering wheel. The overall condition of the paint and interior is superb. This Ford has many features which make the drive much more enjoyable. Options include; power steering, power windows and seat, vinyl interior, automatic transmission, wire wheels, convertible soft top and removeable hardtop, radial white wall tires, A/C but needs a recharge, AM/FM radio, and even a spare tire. If you are a Ford collector or a fan of the mid 50’s Thunderbird body style then do not let this one pass you by.

Engine: 292 CID V8Transmission: AutomaticMileage: 88,393 ( undocumented )
We are very proud to offer for sale at our Saint Louis Gateway Classic Cars Showroom this stunning 1955 Ford Thunderbird. This is a great example of a very well restored 1st year Thunderbird. The smooth running 292 fires right up and idles smoothly. Equipment includes Power steering, Power brakes and Power windows. It is painted in an eye catching red over two tone red and white interior with a matching red hard top. Adding to the pop and shimmer is a set of radial wide white wall tires wrapped around a set of wire wheel hub caps for a very classy look. Power from the 292 is sent through a smooth shifting automatic transmission. The odometer is showing 88,393 with roughly 3,000 since the rebuild. The Thunderbird was Ford’s answer to the Corvette and they ended up selling 23 of them to every Corvette in 1955. This almost put an end to the Corvette until the Thunderbird went another route in 1958 and leaned more towards the luxury market by adding a couple of more seats. The first-generation Thunderbird will always be a recognizable car and who can forget Suzanne Sommers driving a white T-Bird in American Graffiti?

For sale is this beautiful 1970 Ford Mustang Convertible is in our Louisville showroom. This ’70 Convertible Stang has a few upgrades. The original engine has been replaced with 5.0 Liter engine from a 1995 Mustang GT. The engine is what is known as a roller block, because the lifters have small wheels that contact the cam. This reduces the amount of friction, which reduces wear to increase longevity. Less friction also leads to more horsepower. The 1995 GT also gave up it 4-speed automatic transmission, which leads to quicker take offs, while 4th gear allows for lower RPM while cruising the highway. The rear end is a Ford 9-inch piece which makes this drive train rock solid. The black vinyl interior looks to be in excellent shape with no rip or tears. The black top looks to be in great shape. At the flip of a button, the top will go up or down. The current owner has owned this drop top pony for 3 years. While owning the vehicle he has made a few changes which include; new 2 ½ exhaust tips, Sequential Tail Lights, new bumpers, export brace, new carburetor and the transmission has been rebuilt.
