Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to offer this frame up restored 1955 Thunderbird. Billed as the first “Personal Luxury Car”. The 1st generation T-Bird in comparison to the previous year introduction of the Corvette, outsold the Corvette by a ratio of 10 to 1 with over 16,000 units sold in the first-year offering. This particular “Baby Bird” with a VIN ending in #178 is believed to be first day of production. This Thunderbird has received a stunning frame up restoration after twenty-five years in storage with only five hundred miles since. Featuring the standard 292 Y-block engine and Fordomatic two speed automatic transmission this was a cruiser special. Not built as a high-performance car, the personal luxury first-generation Thunderbirds were loved and adored by Hollywood and the well-heeled including the enigmatic Marylyn Monroe photographed in a black Thunderbird very similar to the offering here. Our “Baby Bird” for sale here in the Atlanta showroom glistens with Tuxedo Black paint and a two-tone interior, black and yellow for a personal touch. Highly optioned with power windows, power brakes, telescoping steering wheel and six-way power seats this Bird was the go to personal luxury cruiser. Standing alone as the sexiest car of the mid-fifties, the Baby Bird ruled supreme in the two-seat category. All that style, glamour and grace can be yours still today. Options on this Thunderbird include; convertible top in excellent condition, power steering, power brakes, telescoping steering wheel, power windows, six-way seats and a twelve-volt conversion.
