Did you know that the original, 2 seat Thunderbird was inspired by the Fiberglass bodied Chevrolet Corvette and went into production in September of 1954? They shared the same 102 inch wheelbase, but that’s where the similarities end! With the exception of some very early models, a removable fiberglass hardtop was standard, as were roll up windows and V-8 power, all features unavailable to Corvette customers early on. The Thunderbird V-8 was a 292 cubic inch Y-block topped by a single 4 barrel carburetor with output of 193 H.P. and a standard 3-speed manual and a 198 H.P. when the Ford-O-Matic was installed. More power followed in 1956 as the standard 292 V-8 was up rated to 202 H.P. and an optional 312 c.i.d. Y-block arrived with either 215 or225 horses. Later that same year optional carburetors were introduced to help the 312 reach 260 H.P. . More updates for 1956 included the newly available and distinctive “porthole windows” for the removable hardtop and a Continental style spare tire carrier out back.

This is an exceptional Thunderbird, worthy of your careful consideration. If you have been seeking a car like this at a reasonable price, you may just have found it!
