For sale at Gateway Classic Cars in our Houston showroom is this awesome 1955 Ford Thunderbird, which has under gone an extensive restoration. Half of the fun of the car is driving it.
It is powered by its original 292 CID V8, which still has its post-bebuild break-in oil, and is a blast to drive, with its fun-to-shift 3-speed manual transmission (with overdrive).
The other half of the fun is in looking at it - it's painted in a rich black that really shines, with a black over white interior that's practically new, this baby is an eye-catcher! While its restoration wasn't a full off-frame restoration, most parts have been replaced and/or rebuilt; including a complete motor rebuild (motor has less than 50 miles on it since rebuild). The exhaust manifolds were sandblasted and coated to eliminate future rust. Also freshened up were the braking system, with new front disk brakes to enhance stopping performance. In addition, a new heater core heater duct was installed, and newly-keyed lock cylinders were installed, including ignition, doors and trunk. All of the gauges were checked, and replaced where needed. A new complete color coded wiring harness was installed (has been converted to 12v negative ground with new look-a-like alternator). The vast majority of the chrome has been replaced with new chrome. All the stainless steel has been straightened and polished, and all new glass installed, including windshield.
The seats were removed and completely rebuilt, including sandblasting and painting the frames, and then installing new foam and new seat covers. New kick panels, door panels and carpet was installed. All the rubber seals and moldings have been replaced. Five new period-correct wheels were installed, with bias ply white-wall tires. All paperwork including where engine was rebuilt and lists of parts installed on car is available. This car would make an excellent driver or could be made into a show car with very little effort.
Options on this 1955 Ford Thunderbird for sale include AM Radio, Power Seats, Telescopic Wheel, Vinyl Interior, Wide White Wall bias ply tires, seat belts, and hubcaps.
