LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1956 Ford Thunderbird
With the introduction of the Chevrolet Corvette in 1953, a new type of American car was now being produced. The two-seater roadster was back, and proving to be popular. Ford jumped into the game with the Ford Thunderbird in 1955, it was an instant sales success, quickly outselling the Corvette. For the second year of production, minor styling changes were present, including the optional Continental Kit and famous “porthole” windows in the hardtop. Another change included the availability of the 312 cu in V8 as an optional upgrade from the standard 292 cu in Y block V8.
This tastefully restored 1956 model Thunderbird presented in code “Y” Sunset Coral exterior complemented by a black/white interior with a black convertible soft top. Under the hood is the optional 312cu in version of Ford Y-block V8 engine sending power to a Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission. This beautiful car also features many options sought after on early Thunderbirds including 4-way power seat, thunderbird engine dress up kit, rear fender skirts, Town and Country radio, heater/defroster, power steering, continental kit and more. Recently, it has been nicely restored and presents very well today. To finish off this restoration is a set of Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with wide white wall tires.
This Thunderbird is finished in a timeless color combination and is sure to grab some attention on the road. It has been nicely restored and would do well at the local shows as on the open road. A very nice example of 50’s era styling and in a two-seater roadster ready for Sunday evening cruises!
