For Sale: 1956 Ford Thunderbird



1237 Central Park Drive, OFallon , IL 62269 View Map


For sale in our Chicago showroom is a striking 1956 Ford Thunderbird. The first generation Thunderbirds were some of the most iconic automobiles ever created by Ford and came onto the scene in 1955 in direct response to the Chevrolet Corvette and many European sports cars of the time. The original concept looked a bit foreign and the actual production model proved to be more American and luxurious. This fine example is just jaw-dropping and features the original shade of Peacock Blue with matching blue and white interior, white porthole hardtop and white soft top.
Powering up this beauty is what is believed to be the original 312 Cubic Inch Y-Block mated to the 2-Speed Ford-O-Matic transmission which was very similar to the Powerglide of the time. This car had some great options for the time including a hood scoop, fender skirts, both tops, Ford Master Guide power steering and Swift Sure Ford power brakes as well as the super cool town and Country radio.
Driving this car with the top down/off is like taking a trip down memory lane. Most old cars from the '50's and '60's can be cumbersome and difficult to drive but not this beauty. One turn of the key and the V8 comes to life and this car rides and handles like a more modern car and is sure to get plenty of attention on the road.
Located in our Chicago showroom, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird can be seen including an HD video and pictures at For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email
