Description Ford Thunderbird Cabrio V8 overdrive series 1 1955

This Ford Thunderbird has been 100% body-off restored. The restoration was completed in 2016. The chassis has been stripped down to the bare steel and completely rebuilt from the ground up. Every part has been sandblasted, sprayed or renewed. The 4.8 liter Thunderbird V8 has been completely overhauled, as well as the manual gearbox with overdrive. The overdrive is a special option on this car and shifts perfectly and smoothly. All innovations are extensively documented. The documentation, with invoices totalling over $ 45,000 (check), is supplied with the car. Full brake overhaul has been performed. The drums, shoes, cylinders, springs, handbrake cables and also the optional disc brakes are completely new. All rubbers, silent blocks, shock absorbers and even the rims with whitewall tires are brand new. The leather interior has been renewed and is impeccable. Last but not least, it is worth mentioning that all the chrome has been renewed. The heart top with the round ship windows is of course in suitable condition.

This is a Once in a lifetime car. You will not find a better version than this one!

The Ford Thunderbird has a Dutch (yellow) registration
