As one of THE MOST iconic cars of all time, the 1956 Ford Thunderbird is also one of the most collectible! Today, no serious car collection would be complete without one. Adorned the world over for its stylish contours and classic lines, the ’56 is notably one of Ford’s best production cars ever.

This high quality T-Bird was a one-owner car that sat for 26 years before it was found and meticulously restored by a local professional craftsman. Completely rust free, southern California car. All rubber parts and wiring replaced during restoration. Complete new interior. Upgraded “electronic” tachometer and clock. New windshield. New carpet, heat and sound deadening throughout. Engine completely overhauled and balanced as well as transmission and rear-end completely overhauled! New brakes and brake components and new steel lines. New fuel and tank lines. All bearings and steering components replaced. All bright-work was painstakingly restored and re-chromed locally. Photos of the entire process are available. Pay particular attention to the high quality of the work as this car was restored with the intention of never being resold by the owner. It has been driven approximately 5,000 trouble-free miles since work completion and never in the rain! To enhance drive-ability overall, the carburetor has been upgraded to a modern day Holley. The original “teapot” carb, intake and air cleaner are on hand, fully restored and in storage. Also, included with purchase is the removable Hardtop w/porthole windows, fender skirts, original wheels, wheel covers and tires, and restoration photos.

Imagine yourself zipping around town in this peppy little V 8 powered convertible! This car gleans with its high quality award winning Cadillac Pearl White finish and is turn-key ready to enjoy! Best of all, it is available for immediate sale at Happy Days Dream Cars in Warrensburg, Missouri! Better hurry summer is just around the corner!
