Travel Back In Time With A Winning Bid On This Beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird

Ford’s sports car rivals the notion that ‘50s cars were slow.

The Ford Thunderbird was likely the only chance the blue oval brand had at competing with Corvette in the 1950s. While Chevrolet was stunning the world with a car that could rival even the best European brands, Ford silently worked in the background to make a vehicle that would crush any competition that came its way on the sports car market. That Fierce competition made both automobiles incredibly innovative for their time, as is the case with this 1955 Ford Thunderbird. So you might be wondering, what makes this 1950s sports car so worthy of admiration?

First of all, unlike pretty much anything else on the road at the time, this Thunderbird was powered by a 292 cubic inch V8 engine. As you might expect, that made it pretty fast compared to any competitor that drove its way, it also appealed to Young enthusiasts who had the money to get behind the wheel. On top of that, power transfer was dealt with by a three-speed automatic transmission meaning that the car could get up and go upon a simple push of the gas pedal. Indeed, it was unlike anything available back in the day but you might be wondering what sort of features make it valuable in modern times.

One such thing that sets this car apart from almost any classic car out there is the fact that this one has been with the same owner for 30 years. Even after all that time, the car still looks as good as new which means that that owner must have been supremely good at maintaining their automobile. Other features like the interior fabric, fiberglass roof, and radio also make the car pretty special when looking into its history. Finally, only 4,289 miles are featured on the odometer wrapping up the list of reasons why you should consider getting behind the wheel.
