1956 Ford Thunderbird

Inspired by the Chevrolet Corvette, Ford introduced the Thunderbird as a 1955 model with a 292 cid Y-block V-8 with a single 4-barrel carburetor. Available with a removable hardtop and rollup windows, this was a personal luxury coupe rather than an outright sports car, but it has nonetheless become a true American icon with a rabid collector following. This example wears a repaint in coral and maintains the original interior that remains in very good condition. It features an upgraded intake manifold and a Holley carburetor, but the original equipment including the oil bath air cleaner will be sold with the vehicle. An affordable example of a full classic, this is the perfect driver condition T-Bird that can be enjoyed without further expense or fully restored should the new owner so desire.
Auction Estimate:  $17,000-20,000
