Description
Lot #1563 - The 50's were a very significant time for American car manufacturers. Some of the most memorable cars of all time were designed and produced during that era. The Ford Thunderbird was indeed one of the most popular and well recognized cars of the 50's craze. It was designed by some very forward-thinking folks from Ford including Lewis D. Crusoe, George Walker and Frank Hershey all under the direction of Henry Ford II. The team wanted desperately to produce an American sports car that combined personal luxury as well as unparalleled performance. The end result was a complete success. The team had not only produced a very desirable 2 seat sports car but created a whole new market segment. The Thunderbird presented here is finished in the very popular white over red interior and comes with the original port hole top. It has been restored to impeccable standards with much attention to performance and drivability. The T-Bird comes complete with a host of very desirable options including the high performance 312 V8 coupled with an automatic transmission, Kelsey Hayes wire wheels, Master Guide power steering, power brakes, 4-way power seat, both soft and hardtop, also included is the original Town & Country radio that has been upgraded with a modern high-quality sound system for top down driving. Some of the modern day enhancements include Vintage heat and air conditioning, back-up electric fuel pump for easy starts after extended storage and electric cooling fans for all season driving. Having been well sorted this Bird is an absolute pleasure to drive and is ready for any rally or car show.
