Steve's Auto Restorations 1955 T-BIRD

1955 Ford Thunderbird. This car is a driver, not a show car and priced accordingly. It has one top only, the hardtop of a ’56, ’57 vintage. It has a set of 4 chrome Ford wire wheels. The engine is believed to be original with the original automatic transmission. Body wise it is very sound. There is a small ding in the right side 1/4 panel and a small to medium dent in the passenger door. The floors are sound and other than some minor surface rust in a very few areas, rust free. No rot to replace. The lower left hand lip of the trunk lid has some rust bubbles in the paint. The same place they all have rust problems, but it is not major. This is a California car so rust issues are almost non existent. I doubt that the mileage is the original low 27K. The radio is incorrect. There is no spare or jack. The tachometer does not work. It is not hooked up to the distributor as it appears the wrong distributor is in the car. Upholstery is of the original style and may be original to the car. The car starts, stops, runs and drives. This car can be driven as is or tinkered with and upgraded at ones leisure. Offered at $21,500.00 OBO. Here is a link to the Ad on
