Lot #1020.1 - Complete Amos Minter restoration. Finished in Torch Red with a red and white interior, this 1956 Baby Bird convertible is testament to the Minter magic. The subject of a full restoration, it is powered by a fully dressed, matching numbers 312/225hp 4 barrel V8 Thunderbird Special engine, mated to a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission and Master-Guide power steering. The car comes with a full set of five genuine Thunderbird chromed wire wheels (superior to reproduction ones) mounting correct Firestone Deluxe Champion wide white wall tires and three tops: the classic porthole hardtop, a white softtop, and a body-color-matching red tonneau cover. Like all other Minter restorations, this car will satisfy even the most demanding collector. Photo documentation of the restoration.
