![CDATA[
The Thunderbird could be considered the very back-bone of American youth culture. Sleek in styling, and already sporting the V8 engine that has proved itself over previous generations, this brisk luxury tourer proved hugely popular possibly due to the fact that its emphasis relied more on driver comfort rather than speed. It thus remained in production right up to 2005 in one form or another. The 1956 model freed up more boot space by mounting the spare wheel outside as well as moving the exhausts to the ends of the bumper and cabin ventilation was improved. Porthole windows were added to the hardtop as a no-cost option.
This Thunderbird was imported into the UK in 2020 and presents in delightful condition having previously been restored in the U.S. The 5100cc V8 engine was also rebuilt in the U.S. The fastidious vendor has since had the engine bay detailed together with the fitment of a new Holley carburettor. Sporting a new soft top and swing bar, this splendid example also comes with a porthole hardtop and is fitted with factory air conditioning. Additional features include electric windows together with an electric seat. The Ford-0-Matic three speed gearbox operates as it should and we are advised she drives with no known faults. Supplied with a V5C registration document this T-Bird epitomises a nostalgic bygone era.]]
