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.

1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Dual Quad
http://motoexotica.com/inventory/5964/1956_Ford_Thunderbird_.htm 1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible P6FH285595 • Rare Dual Quad P code T-Bird, predecessor to the 1957 "E" Bird • B6A-900-B High Power Engine Kit 8V (dual four) 235HP • Utah Convertible! • Factory Hardtop & Power Options! • Lovely, Correct Restoration • "P Code" 312ci V8 Engine & Automatic Transmission • White Walls The Thunderbird, or "T-Bird," is an automobile manufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. When introduced, it created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car. The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet's new sports car, the Corvette, which was publicly unveiled in prototype form just a month before. Under rapid development, the Thunderbird went from idea to prototype in about a year, being unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show on February 20, 1954. Like the Corvette, the Thunderbird had a two-seat coupe/convertible layout. MotoeXotica Classic Cars is pleased to present yet another iconic 1956 Ford Thunderbird Convertible. This fine Bird is a rare "P" code dual quad carb vehicle that was the predecessor to the "E" Bird, which was available only in 1957. We have never seen another T-Bird with this option. The T-Bird comes to us from the dry state of Utah, complete with a factory hardtop and many power options, is a beautiful, correct restoration that has been regularly maintained and is ready to hit the open road! It is very presentable and perfect for a cruiser that you can drive and park anywhere! Finished in the original color of Colonial White, the paint appears to have been professionally repainted in the recent past and is in great condition, only showing minor imperfections such as small rock chips. The body is in beautiful, straight shape all the way down to the fender skirts! The factory hard top is also in great condition. The chrome is in great shape as well, only showing minor imperfections. This 50s icon is sure to turn heads no matter where you take it! Inside, the interior is finished in the original color combination of red and white vinyl. It should be noted that the interior has been newly upholstered and looks great! The seats are in great condition, showing no signs of wear or tear. The red carpet looks great, as do the door panels. The dashboard appears original and houses original gauges along with an oil pressure and water temperature gauge beneath the dash. This car is equipped with power windows. There also is a Town & Country radio in the dashboard which looks great. It should be noted that the horn is inoperable. Under the hood, you'll find "P Code" 312 cubic inch V8 powerhouse with the optional and rarely seen High Power Engine Kit B6A-900-B which includes dual Holly 4V carburetors for a total of 235HP. The vehicle also includes a rarely seen Ford Thunderbird Special High Performance Radiator. This T-Bird has power steering and front disc power brakes. The car sits upon a set of 15" red steel wheels with chrome Ford hubcaps, which look excellent! The wheels are wrapped in beautiful 6.70-15 white wall tires that really set off the nostalgic look of the car. This Thunderbird is a true classic and icon of the 50s era! It would be an excellent addition to any classic car collection or would make a fabulous Sunday driver. The VIN is P5FH285595 and the mileage currently shows 66,901. It is being sold on a clean and clear, mileage exempt Utah title. GET OUT AND DRIVE!!!
