Harry's Thoughts

THE ESSENTIALS

This 1955 Ford Thunderbird is a wonderful touring car that with its red and white livery looks sharp anywhere. It was restored for one purpose: cross-country driving. This is not a trailer queen, but a car meant to be a dependable and great looking touring car. But its sharp enough to take with pride to cars and coffees and regional car shows. The present owner is thought to be its third since it was new.

The Torch Red paint (Code R or 70540) is overall very nice for driver quality and was done many years ago showing several areas of defects if you look closely. This was the original color and always looks stunning! From ten feet away, the car looks terrific with plenty of gloss and a nice deep luster. The photos highlight the main defective areas, which include some areas where the paint isn’t a perfect match. The chrome and stainless trim are in very good to excellent condition. The bumpers look more recently chromed while the other trim show some pitting, but in line with the rest of the car. Both drivers and passengers side glass has been replaced.

We love the chrome wire wheels with the wide white wall radial tires for safety and better handling.

The interior is overall in very good condition. The red and white two tone looks sharp! The seats and door panels have been done in red and white vinyl and show well. The carpet looks very nice in red loop. They have added Sirius satellite radio capabilities and a movable woofer for more enjoyment. The white soft top appears to be in nice condition as well. It comes complete with a hardtop rack for easy storage and moving.

Mechanically, the car has been thoroughly gone through and it runs great! The automatic transmission works well and makes it easy for all to drive and enjoy! It has an electric fuel pump for priming after storage.

If you are looking for a trailer queen, skip this car. This is a great looking and wonderful driving car meant to be dependable when most old cars aren’t. And in Torch Red, this is a real looker! For more details, call Harry Clark at +1.602.245.7200 or email us at harry@classicpromenade.com.

Interesting Fact: The Ford Thunderbird is an upscale vehicle that featured eleven unique generations. This vehicle sparked the expansion of the market segment for personal luxury vehicles that feature a higher emphasis on driving comfort, rather than high-speed performance. Production on the Ford Thunderbird occurred from 1955 to 1997 and then again from 2002 to 2005. By the end of 2005, Ford had managed to produce over 4.4 million Thunderbirds. The car was originally designed as a sporty two-seat convertible but was not marketed as such. Within a few years, a second row was added, and the Ford Thunderbird is known for getting larger and large in size until the late 1970s. Many V8 engines have been used in the Ford Thunderbird over the years. As the size of the model increased, a larger engine was also required to support the vehicle. This resulted in later models having poor fuel efficiency. While they weren’t advertised for speed, Ford used the Thunderbird body in their NASCAR races, with many hitting an average speed of about 200 miles per hour. The final Thunderbird was manufactured in July of 2005, but the vehicle still holds up as one of the most comfortable and high-performing cars to date!
