Coming off a great deal of success in years prior, the 1959 Ford Thunderbird had an excellent track record and didn't slow down in popularity. From previous sales recorded, this model actually improved their popularity as it went on to push almost 70,000 sales taking flight to a whole new status. For the first time in automotive history, this vehicle was declared Motor Trends “Car of the Year” this year and was the first individual model to be called such. From the year prior, the model didn't change much except for a newer, larger engine option and was Fords most expensive model available throughout their lineup. “Personal Luxury” was personified by this model as it was given an option of leather seating and the revolution began for this legendary model.

GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this well-restored and highly original example of the 1959 Ford Thunderbird for your consideration. Featuring what appears to be the correct 352 small-block option mated to its smooth shifting automatic transmission, this is a real cruiser with all the length, designing and beauty one comes to expect from the legendary Thunderbird nametag. The exterior shows very well with its white exterior in great shape, the chrome and chrome spoked wheels paired with its beautiful white wall tires are all in a very clean state as well. The interior was clearly recompleted as the colors chosen aren't true to the year but the white with red accents added with leather material look excellent and are more than comfortable for its lucky new owner. Without any clear signs of wear or tear throughout, this example has been very well kept and restored but with no documentation to explain how it was done. A real gem for those who love the longer and more boldly designed Thunderbirds of the late 50's and early 60's, call or email us today for your first close look at your new favorite classic!
