STEEL BIRD ( Custom T Bird )
Steel Bird is a 60's custom that was never finished.





132893 / 1955 Ford Thunderbird
For more information on this vehicle visit http://tinyurl.com/6sz275s This 1955 Thunderbird Pro Tourer features a customized all steel body, a modular Mustang Mach 1 powertrain, a Mustang II suspension with a ton of bolt on upgrades and a comfortable, modern interior. Custom built by Street Visions in Waxhaw NC, this all steel '55 T-bird took one year to build and underwent 1300 hours of restoration and customization. It's completely straight steel body was covered with a thick coat of Dupont Chroma Merlot Burgundy Metallic basecoat/clearcoat that has an excellent finish and displays a brilliant shine. At the front of the car, a custom fascia houses new halogen headlights in traditional T-bird hoods above blue tinted fog lights that are a direct fit where the cars turn signals used to be. Between those lights, a chrome mesh grille replaces the traditional Thunderbird stainless grille, and behind the lights, the car's front fenders incorporate custom fender vents with matching mesh inserts. Ghost flames start at those fender vents and run down the side of the car past custom rear view mirrors with integrated LED turn signals. At the front of the doors, a traditional curved Thunderbird windshield is cleared by custom Newport Engineering stainless wipers and housed in pristine stainless trim. Connected to the top of that windshield is a tan Haartz cloth convertible top with a plastic rear window. At the back of the car, LED tail lights ride above a custom fabricated rear fascia that replaces the traditional '55 bumper. Under the hood of this T-bird is a high-revving modular DOHC 4.6L Ford Mustang Mach 1 motor that is fed by an intercooled Mustang Cobra Eaton Supercharger. To make everything communicate properly and perform without fail, a Detail Zone electronic fuel injection wiring harness and an SCT chip tuned by Pro Dyno were installed and the result was a very stout 451 horsepower and 417 lb./ft. of torque at the rear wheels. In front of the motor, a custom aluminum radiator by Arrow is equipped with a Sparco fan to take care of cooling. At the sides of the motor, coated Sanderson block hugger headers send Exhaust into a true dual Exhaust system with Magnaflow performance mufflers. The engine bay is completely finished with a satin black firewall and body colored hood and inner fenders. Take a look underneath and you'll find a Mustang II suspension with a Fat Man front sub frame and a custom boxed and modded X-member. Bolted under the front of the car is a heavy duty 1.5 inch sway bar, 11.5 inch Brake Tech disc brakes with braided lines, power steering from the Mach 1 donor car and a Flaming River stainless steering shaft and joints. Bolted under the back of the car you'll find Mustang II leaf springs, a heavy duty 1 inch sway bar, custom Cal Trac style rear control bars and Mustang Cobra 11 inch rear disc brakes. Sending power to the wheels is the Mach 1 donor cars Tremec 3650 5-speed manual transmission. Behind that transmission is a shortened and balanced Mustang Mach 1 driveshaft that is connected to an 8.8 inch rear axle with 3.27 gears. Stopping is aided by the Mach I donor cars HydraBoost brake system, and go-juice is supplied by a Tanks Inc. 16 gallon stainless fuel tank with an internally mounted high volume fuel pump. At the corners, 17 inch TSW eight spoke aluminum wheels wear 245/40 BF Goodrich G-Force radials. Inside you'll find a completely custom-built interior. Behind the curved windshield a polished Grant steering wheel with a Mahogany rim sits on an Ididit column in front of classy looking Dakota Digital LED gauges. Below the dash a custom built and custom covered center console houses controls for the Vintage Air system, a Hurst short throw shifter and a Kenwood audio system. Custom seats are covered in Katzkin leather and sit on new Hushmat and new carpet next to custom door panels that feature painted toppers, leather covers, new Relic power windows and Rocky Hinge billet door handles. The car even comes with Viper keyless entry, a power antenna and remote start. This 1955 Thunderbird Pro Tourer features a great looking vintage shape and benefits from 50 additional years of technology.





1956 Ford Thunderbird STK 1389
Some T-Birds are more special than others and I�ll argue that this '56 is one of the nicest we've seen lately. The recipient of a recent frame-off restoration (2009) from top to bottom, it is in outstanding condition throughout. In fact this car had been restored in 1989. Why then you ask was it done a second time? Because the owner has very high standards. The car comes complete with receipts and a thick restoration manual of pictures. I have to assume that the details it specifies have been followed throughout, making this a very correct car as well. NOS and date-coded parts were used wherever possible, and even the original date-coded glove box lining is included (although a replacement is currently installed in the car). The code L peacock blue with colonial White top is absolutely beautiful, applied over those classic T-Bird curves. The sheet metal work was excellent, and if there were any traces of rust, they have been thoroughly and permanently excised from the car�s skin. Panel gaps are above average, although you can tell from the photos. I guess that must be endemic to Thunderbirds, because 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. Trim throughout is uniformly high quality. There are a lot of original pieces that have been restored, including the bumpers and grille, as well as a bunch of NOS items that look exactly the way they did 54 years ago, sitting on the showroom floor. The windshield is the original date-coded piece, which is in extraordinary condition and is a good indicator of the gentle life this �Bird has had. The complex rear bumper that includes Exhaust outlets in the bumper guards, is fully restored to better-than-new condition, and all the bulbs and lenses are fresh. Heck, even the weather stripping is NOS, which tells you how attentive to details the restorer really was. Under the hood you'll find a nicely detailed 312 cubic inch Thunderbird (P code) V8, which when attached to a 3-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission, generated a reasonable 225 horsepower. This one is loaded up with power steering and power brakes, both of which are fully functional of course, and it has A Continental kit with all the correct pieces and parts. Details like the hoses and clamps are correct reproductions, as is the wiring harness. Finishing it off is a reproduction battery and washer fluid bag. Underneath, you�ll find that the entire frame has been treated to a correct satin 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. Brakes and suspension are rebuilt, hardware is correct and finishes are accurate wherever possible. The Exhaust system is a reproduction dual setup that duplicates the original and appears to be coated for long-lasting durability. Lines and hoses are all new, and there�s a fresh gas tank hanging out back. The interior is a real treat. The code xc peacock blue and white vinyl seat has been as beautifully restored as the exterior, and features new foam underneath for all-day driving comfort. The instruments have been fully restored and look gorgeous in that jet-age instrument panel that is framed by engine-turned metal appliqu�s that run from end to end. The dash pad and carpets are also new reproduction items that fit well and look correct�no bizarre off-brand carpets inside this 'Bird! Overhead, a beautiful canvas freshly installed and fits extremely well. The trunk features a new mat and a matching wheel and wide whitewall tire. If you�ve longed to put one in your collection, I submit this as an excellent candidate. Call now! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte, NC showroom. For more information, please call (704) 598-2130 or toll free (866) 542-8392.

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.
