This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is for sale in our Louisville Kentucky showroom. The 55' T-Bird was Henry Ford's response to the Chevrolet Corvette. No one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have. The Thunderbird's first year of production outsold the Corvette. Though it was sleek and sporty, the Thunderbird was not considered a sports car to Ford, but a “personal luxury vehicle.” This Red beauty is a fine example of that first year, a great representation of the epic Thunderbird line. It has both hard top and the frame for the soft top. This T-Bird is powered by a legendary 292 Y-Block V8, which churns out an impressive 198 horsepower. These motors were known for reliability, impressive torque, and unique sound. It's backed by a healthy 3-speed Fordomatic automatic transmission, which makes it an easy driver and a nice cruiser for anyone and everyone. You can truly understand why Ford motor company tried to emphasize the luxury aspect of the 1955 T-Bird, by peeking in the car, then taking a seat. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird convertible for sale has a list of options, which include: AM Radio, hard convertible top, power steering, power seats, power windows, seat belts, classy vinyl, and luxurious wide whitewall radial tires. The car was restored in 2000 at a Florida body shop, and was recently shipped to the Louisville KY area.
