GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1956 Ford Thunderbird for purchase. The Thunderbird was a rushed development in response to the Corvette, but then ended up as a personal luxury roadster instead. The first year (1955) Thunderbird was a tremendous success selling 16,155 cars compared to just 700 Corvette's sold. The Thunderbirds were marketed towards their features rather than performance despite having a 292 cu in V8. The 1955 to 1957 years were just 2-seaters and remained that way until 2002, which were modeled after the 1st generation Thunderbirds whom many believe are the pinnacle of the line.

This '56 Thunderbird is a really cool example of the first generation birds that took the world by storm. It has amazing curb appeal with Colonial White factory color paint with Fiesta Red hardtop and interior. It's powered by the 312ci V8 engine paired with the 3-speed manual transmission. This car has been left largely original and reflects the way it left the Dearborn plant on November 11th, 1955 in which we have a copy of the dealer order sheet. This car runs and drives great and shows nicely. Please call or email for more details!
