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 Thunderbird Test Drive

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.

1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Classic Muscle Car for Sale in MI Vanguard Motor Sales
http://www.ClassicCarBuyingSecrets.com Click now for an instant download on "How to Avoid the 7 Deadliest Mistakes of Buying a Classic Car Online"! Some cars are simply universal in their appeal. No matter if you're a Ford guy, a Mopar guy or a Chevy guy, there are some cars that transcend barriers. I'd argue that the 1955-57 Ford Thunderbird is such a car. Great looks and instantly recognizable, it all adds up to a beautiful car that everyone sees as something special. Some T-Birds are more special than others, however, and Ill argue that this '55 is one of the nicest we've seen lately. The recipient of a 3 year, body-off restoration that cost somewhere near $85,000, this car is in outstanding condition from top to bottom. The mirror finish black paint is absolutely beautiful, applied over those classic T-Bird curves. Whenever I think of an early 'Bird, I always picture this color combination. All of the chrome and trim is perfect, the bumpers have been re-chromed. The body is straight, solid and rust free. The panel gaps are awesome and the door, hood and trunk lips are clean. This car looks even better in person than it does in photos. The doors open and close with precision, the forward-tilting hood fits extremely well, and the trunk lid, including the pass-through for the fuel filler, fits well. The paint has obviously been cut and buffed, because the gloss is fantastic. Under the hood you'll find a nicely detailed 292cubic inch motor and the 3-speed manual transmission. Up front there's a 3-blade fan which looks awesome. The Thunderbird valve covers are a beautiful addition. The Exhaust manifolds have been coated to keep them looking "like-new" forever. A new heater box and duct work, new wiring and a new master cylinder were updated during the restoration. This 'Bird also received a fresh alignment. You will find a battery shut off switch under the dash as well. Underneath, you'll find that the entire frame has been treated to a black paint job before the body was reinstalled. The floors are as glossy as the body panels and it creates an awesome background for the details that are found throughout. The springs and shocks have been rebuilt, and the stainless steel Exhaust system is beautiful. The rear end housing has a paint job that is worthy of the hood! The gas tank has been refinished, and the brake lines as well as the parking brake cable are new. The steering gear is painted, the bushings are new and there are new motor mounts front and back. The back sides of the fenders are beautiful as well, showing no filler, no bumps and no bruises. The interior is a real treat. As I said, whenever I think of a '55-57 T-Bird, I always envision a black one with a black and white interior. The power seat has been as beautifully restored as the exterior, and are all-day driving comfortable. The instruments have been fully restored and look gorgeous in that jet-age instrument panel that is framed by engine-turned metal appliqués that run from end to end. The dash pad and carpets are also new. There is an aftermarket stereo installed in the dash. The original Town & Country AM radio is in working condition, and will go with the car to the new owner. Overhead, the black top fits extremely well. This T'Bird comes with a tunneau cover and an unfinished hardtop (all components required to finish it are available). The trunk features a new mat and a matching wide whitewall tire. Many T-Bird enthusiasts think that 1955 is the best-looking of all the early 'Birds, with no external spare tire like in 1956, and no extended trunk and mini tailfins like the '57. Instead, the purity of the original design that wowed crowds at car shows remained pretty much intact. Restored to spectacular condition inside and out, this particular '55 T-Bird is on that you can drive and enjoy, or trailer to a show and bring home trophies; it all depends on your mood. This is a car where you're getting an awful lot of restoration for not a lot of money, all surrounding a gorgeous, highly-collectable car that will always have an eager crowd of admirers around it. Like I said earlier, there's almost nobody who doesn't think an early Thunderbird is a great car. If you've longed to put one in your collection, I submit this as an excellent candidate.
