Outstanding 1955 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop

New to our Benicia showroom is this beautiful 1955 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door w/Removable Hardtop with gorgeous Gloss Black exterior paint and a matching black & white vinyl interior.  You'll find a factory 292 cid V-8 engine under the hood with correct 4bbl carburetor and matching automatic transmission, plus this beautiful example is factory equipped with power steering, power brakes, power windows/seating, and so much more.  This highly optioned and highly original classic muscle car is in phenomenal condition as well and its available at a steal of a price. 

Fully Restored by Current Owner in Mid 1970’s

The current owner of this 1955 Ford Thunderbird purchased it all the way back in 1970 from the original owner.  He informs us that this one was a beautiful high-end driver at the time and he elected to complete a full restoration in the mid-70’s; professionally restoring the factory drivetrain and completing paint, body work and a refreshing of the interior at a very high level.  This outstanding muscle car has been driven a total of 30,000 miles since that time and we have decades of documentation showing the care it has received across the rest of its life.

Additionally, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop still shows excellent in person with negligible amounts of wear to be found.  The exterior is still laser straight with everything aligning properly and the trim work also looks excellent.  Likewise, the exterior paint could almost be considered flawless with only the slightest of blemishes present.  The gorgeous two-tone factory interior will truly take your breath away since it still shows at the highest possible levels.

In terms of performance, this ’55 Thunderbird fires up and drives like a dream.  The factory 292 motor sounds exceptional and really gets this desirable muscle car down the road in a hurry when prompted.  The transmission also shifts effortlessly while the suspension hugs the road even in tight corners.  In short, this is one of the most impressive factory original pure drivers we’ve seen in many years- it does everything well and sounds excellent.

Beautiful Bay Area Classic w/ Number-Matching Drivetrain

Overall, this 1955 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop is a gorgeous numbers-matching muscle car with a near perfect documented history across two different Bay Area owners.  You will not find a more impressive example anywhere at the current asking price because these types of extraordinary classics simply do not exist anymore on the open market.  For more information about this vehicle, visit our Benicia, California showroom, give us a call at 707-748-4000, or email us at  Be sure to mention Stock # B11416 as well.
