Vehicle Story

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird convertible shows 61,000 miles and is the product of a recent interior, exterior, and mechanical refurbishment. Power comes from a rebuilt 292ci V-8 paired with the standard 3-speed manual gearbox, and equipment includes working power seats, heater/defroster, fabric soft top, an AM radio, and aftermarket FiTech fuel injection. This first-year example is offered with detailed service records, restoration documentation, and a clear New York title.

The car was taken down to bare metal and refinished in Snowshoe White (CC: 2014) in July of 2018, reportedly at a cost of $18,000. Exterior features include a new fabric soft top, chrome bumpers and trim, a scooped hood, and dual exhaust outlets exiting below the trunk lid. 

Chrome wire wheels are fitted with whitewall tires, and handling is managed by a completely rebuilt suspension, a new manual steering box, and mechanical brakes. 

The interior is finished in two-tone black and white upholstery over power-adjustable bench seating with new carpeting. An AM radio is equipped along with manual cranking windows and heater/defroster.

Instrumentation consists of a 150-mph speedometer, 5,000-rpm tachometer, and dials for fuel level and coolant temperature. The trunk lining has been replaced in white and a full-size spare is mounted inside. 

A complete rebuild of the 292ci Y-block V-8 was executed in April of 2021 with the inclusion of Fi-Tech's self-learning throttle body fuel injection, a restored fuel tank, and fresh clutch assembly. The car is reported to run and drive smoothly and reliably.

Photos are of the restoration process are available in the carousel, and walk-around and driving videos are available for viewing below.
