1956 Ford Thunderbird 312 ci V8 SOLD


1956 Ford Thunderbird 312 ci V8 “The best”, nut and bolt restoration Automatic Power steering Air con. Mileage 64,000
Here we have a truly outstanding example of a 56 T-Bird. When these stunning Birds first came onto the market, all the then Hollywood superstars had to have one, Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, Nick Adams, and Elvis was also spotted driving one! They were certainly the car to have.
This 1956 model we have here, is well known for upgrades from the 55 model which are; the spare wheel to be rear mounted and the port holes in the detachable roof. The specification on this bird, is top of the range with power glide steering, automatic gearbox, and air conditioning.
This superb example has all the looks. It is finished in Fiesta Red with matching hardtop, and a two-tone complimenting interior. Under the bonnet sits a V8 312 ci engine which produces 225 bhp. This was the preferred option in 56 , the most powerful of the engine options. It purrs on tick over and has plenty of acceleration when needed.
Most importantly the Thunderbird has undergone a detailed complete nut and bolt frame off rotisserie restoration. We have photo documentation of the process. The Thunderbird was restored approximately ten years ago and since then it has resided in a private collection in an air-conditioned museum style building along with several hundred other cars. Hence very little mileage has been added due to lack of use. The quality of the restoration would comfortably cost in the region of £100,000 in today’s market. Due to lack of use we have just fitted a set of new tyres and a new petrol tank. Hopefully you can see from the Video the quality of this Thunderbird, I would humbly suggest that it may be the best in Europe at present.
This really is a car not to be missed. What a car for a European tour, a fabulous powerful cruiser. This would be a superb addition to any collection.
