The ford Thunderbird is behind Mustang as one of the most iconic nameplates of Ford in its Era. It was all about design and Luxury. This year was the first production year and outsold Corvette. The competition really hotted up after that however making a 55 Thunderbird the most collectible of all the thunderbirds to follow. This car is in excellent condition and drives like a dream. She has her factory hard top in white that just finishes the car beautifully. If you love your American roadsters and want something different to the the corvettes then this is the car.
