Description

Lot #1516 - This is a rare survivor in original stock configuration that's in great condition, visually and mechanically. Exterior (paint, including simulated wood trim) was restored at some point in it's life. The original chrome and stainless as well as the red and white interior are in almost unbelievable condition. The car's VIN (M6FY167019) is stamped on the passenger side frame rail and, along with additional information, on the VIN plate located on the driver's door post. The VIN plate confirms the following aspects of the car's correctness: Engine - Thunderbird 4BBL, dual exhaust V8 (1st VIN digit of M) Model - Country Squire (4th VIN digit of Y) Color - Black (A code) Body - 8 passenger wagon (79C code) Trim - Red/White interior (AT code). The car is powered by a Thunderbird V8, with the correct 4 barrel Holley and T-Bird cast aluminum valve covers & fender emblems (the engine is assumed to be original, however, VIN's were not stamped on Ford engine blocks in 1956). It sports the following factory equipment: power steering, power brakes, power windows, front power seat, third fold down seat (8 passenger), AM town & country radio, spot lights on both sides, windshield sun visor, side window visors, fender shirts and front bumper guard. Just as impressive is the fact that everything works and the glove box even houses the original, but a little soiled, 1956 Ford owners manual (with break in instructions underlined). This rare investment grade vehicle has had the same owner since 1984 and is a great eye catcher that runs and drives great.
