Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is proud to offer this awesome 1956 Ford Thunderbird with Continental Package with Cold AC!!
The Thunderbird was Ford’s direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette and underwent a rapid development process so it could ultimately be unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show in February of 1954. The 312 cu in V8 became the Thunderbird's standard engine, and now produced about 245 horsepower. The shape of this car is undeniably 50’s and probably one of the most beautiful cars of its time. Being that this is a Continental package, you will immediately notice the spare tire on the back of the boot.
This ’56 Thunderbird comes loaded with standard features of its time such as Town & Country AM radio, convertible manual top, power brakes, power steering, telescoping steering wheel, and cold A/C as stated before! The interior of this car is incredible with even the clock and dashboard accessory light still working!
You will turn heads and feel proud driving around town in this classic 1956 Ford Thunderbird! As soon as you get in, shut the door, fire it up and grip the wheel, you are immediately taken right back into a time when U-2 spy planes owned the sky and Elvis became King.
