The tire mount moves out of the way by use of a hinged bracket. Contains cowl side vents along with glass wind deflectors which improves passenger ventilation and greater driving comfort. Advanced features include the high torque Thunderbird V8 Y block engine for 1956. Double Twin-Jet carburetor with integrated automatic choke and a 12-volt ignition system.
