Description

Lot #949.1 - Multiple CTCI winner including national Senior Gold Award in the 1990's. Since its original concours restoration and show career, this venerable Thunderbird had been maintained by in-house staff mechanics for over 25 years. The result is a remarkably preserved vehicle that would require very little to be competitive on the show field again. Equipped with power steering and brakes, 4-way power seat and windows, hard and softtops, five Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, factory radio, heater and telescopic steering wheel. Outfitted with a jaw-dropping Continental Kit, engine dress-up kit, back-up lights, windshield washer and automatic transmission. Appeared in "Thunderbird's 40th Anniversary Retrospective" magazine. This '55 packs a pedigree very few automobiles share.
