1956 Ford Thunderbird

Gateway Classic Cars of Tampa is happy to list this beautiful 1956 Ford Thunderbird!

The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet's new sports car, the Corvette. Production of the Thunderbird began later on in 1954 on September 9 with the car beginning sales as a 1955 model on October 22, 1954 and sold exceptionally well in its first year; outselling the Corvette by more than 23-to-one for 1955 with 16,155 Thunderbirds sold against 700 Corvettes. With the Thunderbird considered a success, a few changes were made to the car for 1956. The most notable change was moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper in order to make more storage room in the trunk and a new 12-volt electrical system.

If you're ready to take a cruise around town and do so in some style, simply hop in, turn the key, shift it into gear, and this spunky numbers matching 312 V8 will have you rolling. The 312 V8, which produces approximately 225 HP is linked to a Ford O Matic 3 speed transmission. This original drivetrain has just over 44k actual original miles. The interior was kept simplistic and very period correct for a 56' T-Bird. The Carmel Tan vinyl interior gives it a nice contrast, looks sharp, and is in good shape overall. Other options on this 1956 Thunderbird include: AM/FM Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Vinyl interior, White Walls, & Seat belts.

With its classic look, colors, lines, white-wall tires, and low body, this Thunderbird is a great find and will make its next owner very proud to have and to hold onto.
