We are very happy to present this beautifully restored 1956 Thunderbird. Rotisserie restored in 2014, it still shows exceptionally well. The 55-57 Thunderbirds were Fords way to compete with Chevy's Corvette. They were very popular, and still remain great collector cars. You can see the quality of the work done on this restoration. Everything looks good right down to the seals and the inner door hinges.
The clock is actually working as well as all of the gauges. The Town and Country radio also works. The steering wheel is telescoping. We apologize for the color differences in our photos. The true color is the one in the outside photos. It is not orange it is Fiesta Red which is not a real bright red. We have the original Ford order sheet. Under the hood is the original 292 V-8. This car runs great. IT doesn't smoke, and we haven't had any evidence of leaks.
The original Ford tags are visible throughout and the undercarriage shows all factory markings. You can see the trunk is as nice as the rest of the car. There is a custom car cover included. The spare on the Continental kit works easily, so you can get to the gas fill with no problem.
The undercarriage is still in extremely good condition. You will see the restoration shop went as far as to put factory correct markings on the drive train. This is your chance to own a beautiful 56 T-Bird. The car was awarded a junior and senior national award in 2017. In of Concourse cars, only 2% of the 3000 entries are awarded a National 1st Place Award. There are a few small areas where the paint shows some small flaws. These "Baby Birds" are truly a classic design. This is a very fine example of the 2nd year production. I think our photos speak for themselves. This car is still in excellent condition after 8 years.
