1955 Ford Thunderbird
*This '55 T-Bird is stunningly beautiful, a true 1950's classic. Updated with a 1957 245HP 312ci V8 engine (not the 198HP 292ci standard for 1955) it carries vastly improved power. Installed are a 1957 manifold and holly carburetor. (Original manifold comes with the car)
*Standard Ford-O-Matic 3-speed transmission
*Lightweight fiberglass convertible top.
*Power steering, power brakes, power seats, all in excellent working order
*Aluminum radiator with seven blade fan for improved drivability, T-Bird's were notorious for overheating. (Owner says from time to time it may still run hot if he's caught for an extended period in bumper to bumper LA traffic).
*The 6 Volt battery system has been replaced with a 12 V system. Battery is from a 1956 T-Bird and identical in size to the 1955 6 Volt
*Comes with the original convertible top - frame minus the vinyl.
*Legitimate Thunderbird wire wheels requiring an inner tube. Tires are not original bias ply and have been updated with radials for increased drivability. Trunk has been updated and contains a space saver spare tire with an extra inner-tube.
*Radio is new with trunk mounted custom Kenwood speakers. Buyer can easily source original radio if interested.
*This Stunning Example of American History is available for $53,500
