1956 Ford Thunderbird -- description

Ford was looking for something to compete with the Chevrolet Corvette which started to show quickly as a popular segment but didn't want to pursue the sports car necessary but created a segment all of its own. With the clever marketing plan in place Ford began the production of the Ford Thunderbird in 1955 as a Personal Car segment and although it was very much a sporty two-seater convertible just like the Corvette it paid more attention to luxury and comfort more so than the competition. This ...model did not inherit its second row of seats until 1958 and from there it slowly but surely grew in size generation after generation until 1977 when the larger cars lost their popularity in the market. The Thunderbird was one of the longest lasting nametags for Ford and started strong by selling 23 models for every one Corvette sold when it first hit the market. The only changes completed between its inception model to the 1956 was moving the spare tire to a continental-style rear bumper in order to make more room within the trunk. GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1956 Ford Thunderbird for consideration. This Bird is finished in a Peacock Blue exterior with White (port hole) removable hard top that has all new gaskets installed on it.
