The first generation Ford Thunderbird launched to great accolades. Designed to transport two occupants briskly in great comfort, the Thunderbird came to define the American sporty luxury coupe. Built for only three model years, the first generation Thunderbird evolved rapidly, with each year bearing a distinctive appearance and personality. The 1956 Thunderbird can be identified by its unique exterior mounted continental spare tire. With only 15,631 Thunderbirds produced for 1956, it is one of the most exclusive model years. This 1956 Ford Thunderbird was the pride and joy of its recently departed owner. His family is selling the car, and would like it to go to a home which will cherish it as much as they have. This car is an older restoration that has been in the family for over 20 years. It has been driven sparingly, covering approximately 5,000 miles since restoration, and stored indoors. The 202-horsepower, 292-cubic inch V-8 is stated to start cleanly and run smoothly. The seller affirms that the engine was rebuilt 5,000 miles ago when the car was restored. The three-speed manual is described by the seller as a smooth-shifting gearbox in all gears. The seller affirms that no leaks or weeps are apparent from the powertrain. An aftermarket carburetor and air filter have been fitted, and a modern alternator has been installed. It's up on @HemmingsAuctions and bidding is now live! Want to see the listing?
