1955 Ford Thunderbird Roadster Additional Info:

This auction is for a 1955 Ford Thunderbir, It is an older restoration that has 4800 miles since being done. The car was an original Texas car up until a year ago,it is now located in South Florida. It remains a rust free exampl, very solid, nice " driver" quality car. During its restoration, which was done on frame, the drivetrain was completely rebuilt as was the completesuspension. The original 292 V8 was fully overhauled as was the original Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission. The car runs and drives very nicely, it has a nice stance, no sagging. The chassis is rot free, car still retains its original floors and trunk. The paint has some wear from normal use, but still looks very nice, no oxidation. The glass is in pretty nice condition, no cracks or chip, some light delamination but still very useable. The chrome is in nice condition, the front lower bumper has a small twist in it but you really have to look for it. The car comes with both the hard top as well as the original soft top,it does need a new convertible top to be useable. The interior is in very nice condition,it too was redone during the restoration, the dash and trim are stillvery nice. There are a set of accurate aftermarket gauges mounted below dash as well as a battery shut off, these can be left in or removed very easily. The original dash gauges also work, fuel gauge is accurate,tach & speedo both work andare accurate as well. Recent upgrades include front disc brakes, electronic ignition, carb upgraded to Edelbrock 4 BBL on the original manifold ( the original Holley 4000 carb & cleaner are in trunk). The electrical system has been professionally gone through and upgraded with a 1 wire GM alternator along with some upgrades in circuit protection. No shorts, no draws, no funky wiring issues. Recent repairs include: new master cylinder &split system brake plumbing, rear brake overhaul, power steering valve,cylinder and hoses replaced, pump rebuilt. The gas tank, fuel sender and gauge have been replaced. The tires (bias ply) were replaced in 2014 and have little to no wear, no dry rot and white walls look good.
