Lot #478.1 - This is a rare breed in the hard-to-find Golden Glow Yellow with a black and white interior. She's an original 1956 Ford Thunderbird restored by arguably the best Baby Bird restorer on the planet, Amos Minter. Known for his quality work, Minter spares no expense in his full restorations. It has the original 312 V8 engine it had when it came off the factory, though it was rebuilt less than 200 miles ago. Its body is in excellent condition with lines as straight as an arrow. The car is finished in the original Golden Glow Yellow that Ford used in 1956, and it looks so fresh, that it makes the car come alive. The chrome is in excellent condition throughout the vehicle and gives the car its lustrous personality. The black and white interior is sharp and in near-mint condition. Every part of this car looks amazing from the dash to the real wire wheels, undercarriage, convertible top, optional hardtop, and more, have all been restored to a remarkable like new condition. Any Thunderbird enthusiast or classic car connoisseur who appreciates the way classic cars are meant to look and drive should be proud to own this exceptionally rare automobile. A perfect addition to any serious Thunderbird collection.
