California car with both tops, power steering, power brakes, power windows, power seat, wire basket wheel covers. CTCI First Place Senior Gold Award winner.245bhp, 312 cu. in. overhead valve V8 engine, Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, independent front suspension, live rear axle and four-wheel hydraulic drum brakes.

The 1956 Thunderbird offered here, originally from California, completed a total ground-up restoration which led directly to two CTCI Gold medals, one at the regional level and the other at a national event.

The car was repainted in the proper factory code Colonial White paint, and fitted with the proper black and white interior. Restored specifically to compete at CTCI events, there was a clear focus on making everything as correct as possible when the car was restored and accordingly such areas as the engine bay and underside of the vehicle are factory correct in their use of components and hardware.

This very attractive and correct example comes with a host of desirable features and options including California plates, power steering, power brakes, engine dress-up kit, wire basket wheel covers, Haartz cloth soft-top and a white porthole hardtop, Town & Country radio, power windows, power seat, back-up lights, and of course fender skirts and a continental kit.
