1955 White Ford Thunderbird
Why This Car Is Special
A first-year 1955 Ford Thunderbird remains one of the most collectable ’50s cars, and it’s easy to understand why. The one we have at Skyway Classics has the V8 engine, the great color combo of white exterior, black convertible top, and a black and white interior is very desirable.
Throw in the wire wheels and V8 power and you have one slick restored T-Bird!

This T-Bird has had a complete restoration on it including under the hood. It had the P code 292 cubic inch V8 engine with 193 horsepower from the factory and has most other parts that looks stock.
It has a factory cast iron intake, four-barrel carb, Thunderbird’s special valve covers, and what appears to be all other factory engine components, with the addition of a chrome open element air cleaner.
This motor exhales out of the cast iron exhaust headers into the dual exhaust and the V8 is backed with the automatic transmission with chrome shifter and underneath is as clean, painted, and detailed as up above. It runs and drives exceptionally well.
The brand new black and white interior consisting of the white bench seat and matching door panels was re-upholstered and looks stunning with the dash in black with factory gauges, radio, and controls, black/polished steering wheel, black seat belts, and the chrome floor shifter.
The restored interior has the look that it did coming right out of the showroom back in 1955.
There are no other 1955 Thunderbirds that are more desirable than this white over black T-Bird. The chrome really sets the Thunderbird apart as does the wraparound front bumper, wide mesh grille, subtle hood scoop, and the twin tailpipes integrated through the rear bumper guards.
It has chrome spoke wheels and raised white letter Cooper Cobra Radial GT tires and they look good with either the wheel well fender flares or without both will give it the final correct look too.
The trunk is restored and the black convertible top looks great too.
This a stunning 1955 Ford Thunderbird that we have here at Skyway Classics is super nice and restored. The Thunderbird was Henry Ford’s response to the Chevrolet Corvette, and no one could have predicted the success the Thunderbird would have.
The Thunderbird’s first year of production literally outsold the Corvette more than 23 to 1.
This T-Bird is more than just nostalgic, it is iconic and a car that will evoke envy from everyone who sees you driving it.
