SOLD 1955 FORD THUNDERBIRD REPLICA BUILT BY SHAY
This is a factory built car. Shay Manufacturing is the builder. They used Ford Pintos to set the 55 T-Bird body on. So maintenance is very easy. You get power steering and front disc brakes. You get an economical 4 cylinder engine. This one is set up with a 4 speed transmission. It came out of an estate so I never talked to the owner. My son and I have driven it a fair amount. It runs and drives well. We had a new Exhaust system installed. We had it serviced and safety checked. Everything works but the air conditioning. Its complete, so maybe it only needs a charge? Has a AM/FM radio. The body is very good. Its hard to tell its not real without looking really close. Things like side marker lights which were required when they were built in the 80s. Also, headrests are another tell tale. The dash is different also. The seat on the drivers side has a bad spot. Dont want to spend a fortune and have a neat classic to drive? Cond. # 3.

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.
