1955 Ford Thunderbird: Back in Black -- /BIG MUSCLE
It's been in the same family for the better part of 50 years. Been modified with performance and weight savings in mind, and is one of the sleekest looking cars we've ever come across. This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is no secretaries car, but a purpose built award winning street machine that was built in a time before resto-modding old cars was all the rage.

133105 / 1955 Ford Thunderbird
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/823x377 Thunderbird fans, save your angry E-mails—no real 1955 Thunderbirds were harmed in the construction of this killer, take-no-prisoners Pro-Touring T-Bird. Built from Regal Roadsters components, it features a tubular space frame, a steel reinforced fiberglass body, and accessories like A/C and power windows, this is the T-Bird you want to own if your other car is, say, a Top Fuel dragster. There's absolutely nothing wrong with the early T-Bird shape, and all that is gorgeous about that Ford sheet-metal was recaptured in composite for this red roadster. Regal Roadsters has laid up a gorgeous and well-finished product that rivals any of the original steel in terms of straightness and fit, and then someone spent a ton of time making it extra nice. There are no waves, no ripples, no signs of the fiberglass substrate visible anywhere. Gaps are excellent and everything lines up extremely well, from the original-looking scooped hood to the flush-fitting deck lid. And once it was all smooth and straight, 2-stage urethane in flaming Regal Red was laid down over every square inch, including the bumpers and wrap-around windshield frame, leaving you with an eye-popping roadster that is anything but subtle. When you pop the hood on this one, you'll find a 514 cubic inch Ford big block V8, fresh out of the Ford Racing Performance Parts catalog. But they weren't content to just drop it in as it came out of the crate. First off, you'll notice those Hilborn-style velocity stacks on top of the engine, part of a modern EFI system that gives vintage looks with modern-day performance. Right below the intake, you'll find a pair of gorgeous valve covers, custom built for this application with a vintage Thunderbird logo airbrushed on the faces. A compact polished billet aluminum accessory drive system includes power steering and air conditioning, and features a single serpentine belt just like a modern car, and it's all polished to a show finish. Look underneath and you'll find a full tube frame chassis, finished in more Regal Red with polished accents. Front suspension consists of upper and lower A-arms with adjustable coil-over shocks and a modern rack-and-pinion system. Out back, there's a beefy 4-link, again with polished and chrome plated links and coil-over shocks, and a beautifully finished Ford 9-inch rear. There's a vented and cross-drilled brake rotor at each corner, clamped by Wilwood calipers. And dig the gorgeous hand-made Exhaust system, which has been fully polished so it matches the rest of the eye candy under the car. Wheels are perfectly-sized polished aluminum Budnik 5-spoke units wearing Yokohama Advan radials. The wow factor doesn't end there. Inside you'll find a completely custom-built interior that is a modern interpretation of the already gorgeous 1955 Thunderbird's cockpit. Done in gray leather, the seats are deep buckets that are every bit as comfortable as the originals. The door panels are recreations of the originals, including the cool engine-turned inserts that stretch into the dashboard and frame the instrument panel. A custom console has been constructed to house the shifter for the 6-speed, while HVAC controls are in the dash in the usual location. The trunk is beautifully finished as well, with matching carpets and side panels. If you're looking for something a little different with a lot of horsepower and enough eyeball appeal to bring home a trophy at virtually any show you attend, I can't think of many cars that do it better than this one. Fully sorted, beautifully finished, and an absolute blast to drive, this red roadster truly does deserve to wear the Thunderbird name. Just wait 'till you hear it, then you'll understand.

Classic 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sale - (Louisville, kentucky) 56 Ford Thunderbird for sale
www.gatewayclassiccars.com 1928 Ford Model A Tudor Sedan. This well-kept all steel classic is powered by four cylinders on a conventional ladder chassis with mechanical brakes. The L-head engine, rated 40 horsepower, displaces 200.5 cubic inches and is twice as powerful as the Model T's, also lighter and more efficient. No longer was it bolted to the complex and outdated planetary transmission, but to a modern three-speed gearbox with a dry multiple-disc clutch. Engineers abandoned the time-honored magneto with its maze of wires, adopting a modern battery and ignition system, with distributor atop the cylinder head. Also new to the Model A was a centrifugal water pump and fin-and-tube radiator all making the car easier to maintain and more reliable. This vehicle is located in our Louisville showroom, for more information please call 812-294-1555.





1956 Ford Thunderbird 312 a/t
A friend's family car-one of several of their cars. This is a 312 4bbl a/t and is every bit as beautiful standing next to it as it is in the video. Cam is an Isky that is probably a little hotter than stock. Original hp was in the very high 200 hp range & likely rated at 300. I can't remember. This car was DRIVEN to a junk yard in 1972 or so and parked. Another video I uploaded has video of the photos of the car before Kenny started fixing it up. I don't want to hear any geezer say our generation is a throw away generation. They did it too and worse. This car is a perfect example. Notice where the Exhaust exits the bumper -on both sides at the corners.

1956 Ford Thunderbird for Sale: From Fire to Fantastic
Visit http://www.sunsetclassics.com/1956-ford-thunderbird/ to see this cool classic 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis MN. This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is a popular favorite among enthusiasts as it is the only year that has the ornamental continental kit and resulting more spacious trunk. Thunderbird Green (or Sage Green) was only offered in 1956. Combined with a green and white interior, this color combination is stunning. This 1956 was a nearly perfect, unrestored example until just a few years ago. The car was in for an engine rebuild when the shop suffered a fire. Luckily this car was the closest to the door and was pushed out before it caught fire, but the heat from the blaze was enough to harden the rubber on the car, and the foam spray used by the fire department was enough to harm the original paint. It was a shame for sure, but it was enough to justify a complete frame off restoration. Starting with such a nice, original and straight car helped this restoration end up with one of the finest restored examples out there today. The restoration took 6 years and every last nut, bolt and part was removed and rebuilt. The end result shown here for sale is stunning. Enjoy the video then stop by the link above for the full story of this '56 T-Bird as well as the very detailed photo galleries - and of course to make an offer on this fantastic classic car!
