Don’t let this opportunity pass you by and become the new owner of this timeless classic Ford Thunderbird! This is a NO RESERVE PRICE auction.
The Ford Thunderbird, which was introduced in 1955, is a car produced by Ford and was originally intended as a competitor to the Corvette which had flopped at the time. Although the Corvette was a nice racer, Ford did things differently: they built a sporty luxury car not intended for racing but rather for cruising. It was offered as a coupé or as a convertible with a hardtop. It became an immediate success which was partly due to the fact there wasn’t much competition.
This Ford, from the first generation of Thunderbirds, is becoming more rare and harder to find: it is a true collector’s item!
This Thunderbird is in a neat condition. The car starts immediately, shifts smoothly and powerfully through all gears and idles nicely. The engine compartment, with the upgraded Holley carburettor, also looks very fresh and well maintained. The interior (Med.Blue/Lt.Blue) is still in a very neat and original condition as is shown in the pictures.
The Azure Blue (original colour code) lacquer still looks good on this Thunderbird apart from some traces of wear.
This Ford from the first generation D Code (312CI instead of 292CI) of Thunderbirds is becoming rarer and harder to find, it is a true collector’s item!
