For sale in our Chicago showroom is a stunning 1956 Ford Thunderbird. After the introduction of the Corvette in 1953 the fine folks at Ford realized the need for a sporty little roadster and the Thunderbird was born. Though the Corvette was marketed as more of a "sports car," the Thunderbird flew onto the scene as a personal luxury car and delivered style, convenience and comfort and became an icon of American automotive history.
This spectacular example is one of the finest we have come across and is sure to please the next fortunate owner. The paintwork is duplicated in the original shade of Fiesta Red over a red and white interior and finished off with a black cloth top. This color combination is quite striking and is sure to draw some attention. The full body-off restoration does not disappoint and this car is a recipient of a AACA Grand National Senior first place award as well as the T-Bird National first place award.
Under the hood is the original 312 Cubic Inch V8 that starts right up and purrs like a kitten. At idle it is hard to tell this 'Bird is running and upon acceleration you hear just enough rumble to let you know you are moving along. The transmission also shifts very smooth through gears and will get this beauty up to highway speed without hesitation. In addition to the joy of owning this rolling piece of artwork you will be impressed with the ease of drivability thanks to the power steering, power brakes, power seat and telescoping wheel.
This car features the continental kit, spoke wheel covers, and a matching hardtop. If you desire only the finest in classic automotives this one deserves a second look. Imagine throwing that top back and hitting the open road with that special someone and getting all of the attention and thumbs up one could ever desire.
Located in our Chicago showroom this 1956 Ford Thunderbird can be seen including an HD video and pictures at www.gatewayclassiccars.com. For additional information please call (708) 444-4488 or email Chicago@gatewayclassiccars.com
