1956 Ford Thunderbird White Convertible
Why This Car Is Special
The Ford Thunderbird was a rear wheel drive automobile which was manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury car.
We have a frame-on restoration of a numbers matching 1956 Ford Thunderbird here at Skyway Classics that is in gorgeous original color of Colonial White with the two-tone aqua/white interior trim, Continental Kit on the rear, and the white Porthole hardtop.
It received a restoration by the owner and the chassis was sand blasted underneath, painted and detailed to look as nice as the rest of the car.
