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.

1964 Ford Thunderbird Convertible
There are a lot of unique cars out there but look closely at a Thunderbird
and you will be surprised at how many neat features it has. This 1964
Thunderbird is extremely tight and runs incredibly well. These cars had a
look all of there own and really stand out in the crowd. It is coated a
very nice Red that has been buffed out to a great finish. The front end
appearance is very unique and that large chrome grill/bumper has a
beautiful shine. The dual headlights are cleanly mounted in recessed style
coves and are framed in nice polished bezels. To both front fenders are
the original style bullet turn signal indicators and the hood has the
correct scoop and trim. In the rear are the long taillights that work just
as they should. Where most cars have individual bezels for the taillights
these cars utilizes an entirely chromed rear section. Another cool feature
is the rear fender skirts which fit nicely in place and are topped with
Tbird emblems. Nicely chromed mirrors are in place on both sides and are
both easily adjustable. The car has a very solid stance and rolls around
on beautiful Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with Thunderbird knock off style
Giving life to this machine is a 390 V8 that was finished out very nicely.
Chrome looks flashy but there is something very appealing about a motor
done in this way. All of the components are cleanly painted in a factory
style that really pops. Small touches like the decals really make the
difference in giving it that original look. The inner fenders are nicely
painted to match the car with the firewall coated black. Backing this up
is a nice automatic transmission that shifts smoothly with no issues. This
car really is a great driver that runs just as beautifully as it looks.
The interior of the car brings us to a feature every TBird enthusiast is
quick to point out. Nicely in place on the dash is the tilt away steering
column which adjusts to the left and right allowing the driver to easily
hop in and out of place. Not only was this a functional feature it was an
idea thought up by the designers to give the new models something unique to
create a buzz about the car.
The interior upholstery is completed in a two tone Red and White that looks
great. Everything is in gorgeous condition from the trim down to the
smallest knob on the dash. An original style center console is in place
which provides extra storage and houses the Thunderbird AM/FM radio and the
AC/Heat controls. A power top is also in place which easily lowers and
raises the BRAND NEW high quality white cloth top. Make sure to check out
our videos to see the top smoothly raise and lower.

Reflecting a further industry-wide adoption of smaller vehicle designs in
the interest of improved fuel efficiency and emissions compliance, the
Thunderbird was redesigned for 1980 on the compact Ford Fox platform, which
first appeared only two years prior as the basis for the Ford Fairmont.
Compared to the previous Torino-based Thunderbird and its large 114 inches
(2,896 mm) wheelbase and 215.5 inches (5,474 mm) overall length, the new
Thunderbird lost 5.6 inches (142 mm) of wheelbase and 14.6 inches (371 mm)
in overall length. The squarish styling seen in the previous generation
Thunderbird was favored for the new model, but the small car platform
resulted in a poor translation with a distinctly upright appearance.
Frameless door glass was no longer used; a chrome metal frame was used,
making this car more like a two-door sedan. Combined with the poor
performing 4.2 L (255 cu in) Windsor V8 as a base engine, this Thunderbird
generation was not well received by the public. The available 4.9 L (302 cu
in) Windsor V8 was a welcome alternative to the 255, but with only 131 horsepower (98 kW)
performance was only modestly enhanced. Significantly, though failing to
generate any new interest for the Thunderbird, a six-cylinder engine was
made available for the first time in the Thunderbird's history in 1981, the
200 cu in (3.3 L) Thriftpower Six. For 1982 this was followed up with the
replacement of the straight-six with a V6, the 3.8 L Essex, which was also
now the Thunderbird's standard engine. Hurting the Thunderbird's sales
performance further, the 302 V8 did not return for 1982, leaving the 255 as
the only alternative engine. At 288,638 examples produced between 1980 and
1982, the eighth generation Thunderbird was barely more successful than the
final model year of the previous Thunderbird generation. In order to
revive the Thunderbird's success, a redesign was needed and Ford would
deliver one for 1983.

1964 Ford Thunderbird coupe
Beautiful car..this was up for auction at last year's Zephyrhills Florida
show. Interesting paint combination..and you will have to go a long way to
find one with such a nice interior. Notice the swing-away wheel that helped
drivers enter and exit the car. Notice the full gauge assortment in
binnacles that faced the driver. Overhead there are controls too...the
overall atmosphere is that you're in the cockpit of a plane! The
interestingly formed back seat is curved so as to wrap around the sides.
