Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to present this 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sale. This Thunderbird is Fiesta Red with a white hardtop and red interior. It has a 312 CI V8 and an automatic transmission. The first-generation Thunderbird was introduced in 1955 and had a three-year run until 1957. The Thunderbird is always compared to the Corvette, but Ford intended the car to be more about personal luxury and comfort than it was about performance. Powered by a peppy V8 engine, combined with their relatively light weight produced a brisk ride. This Thunderbird is equipped with AM/FM radio, manual convertible top and a hard top, hub caps with wide white walls and seat belts.
