1959 Ford Thunderbird Additional Info:

The second-generation Thunderbird is arguably the most distinctive of the bunch. So when you can find an example that has been given a thorough restoration, has big block power, and acres of chrome like this 1959 Ford Thunderbird coupe, then you know you have a true cut-above classic.
Check out all the restoration photos. Rarely do you find a car that has this much work completed in its lifetime and yet remains quite affordable today. These second-generation cars are affectionately called "square birds" because of the sharp angles, and those crisp lines are clearly defined thanks to the solid investments in body and paint. But as you look over the wraparound front bumper with integrated chrome grille, bold profile lines, and jet-inspired rear with a great dip in the trunk line, you begin to realize that the stylists really took their time on this classic. And of course, we all love the turbine-style wheel covers with the iconic whitewalls. All of that is the key to this coupe's presence today. It's not just the glossy red, but also all of the details are correct to truly make a lasting impression upon arrival.
Inside is the right kind of luxury you would expect from a premium T-bird. The seats are a custom setup that provide comfortable cloth inserts for where you sit, and the durable red vinyl around it gives this a subtle two-tone effect. Plus, the streak of white on the door panels nicely coordinates with the headliner, steering wheel, gauges, and heat/defrost sliders. And you can tell from the condition on everything from the center console to the dash, that the right investments were made keeping this coupe fresh and solid. And because this is a personal luxury machine, the driver is king. That's why you have everything from a power seat to an easy reach to the upgraded AM/FM/cassette player with digital tuner.
Under the hood is a proper 352 cubic-inch V8. It looks great in the tidy engine bay with good wires and hoses. And the gloss black looks good against the red fender walls. Plus, the big white air topper is a standout that showcases plenty of cool correct decals. This V8 is far larger than anything offered in the first-generation Thunderbird, and so this big block V8 has the right power and torque to confidently move this coupe. On the road, the dual exhaust gives a hint at the power under the hood, but the T-bird never loses its composure. It floats down the boulevard like a true vintage luxury coupe should. This is aided by the right features such as the three-speed automatic transmission and power steering.
The sale comes complete with a restoration photo book and the receipts, so you can see the level of workmanship that has gone into this coupe. It's amazing that something this complete and distinct is also so affordable. That's why you know you need to hurry if you want to grab this deal. Call today!!!
