his 1955 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The Thunderbird was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and was revealed at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. No one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird's first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a "personal luxury vehicle." This example is one of the cleanest I have seen. The paint on the car is slick and clean with the chrome trim being polished to a high luster. The wire wheels with the wide white wall tires. Under the hood is the original 292 Y block that runs extremely well. The 3-speed manual transmission is not something you often see in these making for a nice surprise. Hit the button on the power seat and get comfortable after all that was what these baby birds were all about. With the original removable hardtop restored it the same condition this is a bird that will turn heads no matter what from it’s in. If you have wanted a baby bird that is of the highest quality this beauty is for you. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird convertible for sale has a list of options, which include: AM/FM Radio, hard convertible top, power steering, power seats, power brakes, seat belts, classy vinyl interior, and luxurious wide whitewall radial tires wrapped around chrome wire wheels.
