1955 Ford Thunderbird
My Thunderbird is red with red and white interior. It has both
tops, one is a hardtop which matches the body color, red, and
the other which is a soft top is white. The car is 100% correct
with all numbers factory matched. It is powered with a 292 cubic
inch engine with a two speed transmission. It has a Continental
kit on it and there were several different types available of
which none where shown in the Regular Thunderbird Catalogs.
of these kits were "Dealer-Installed" and there is only
one known instance of a Continental Kit being "Factory Installed"
which was on car number P5F1124717, which is not mine! My
Thunderbird has the correct FoMoCo numbers on all of the brackets,
but was "Dealer Installed". This is only "One of
Ten" Show Cars owned, registered, running and driven by me.

waxing and cleaning all of those whitewalls, I can't seem to
find the time to work on them.
