1955 Ford Thun­der­bird

Classic Car Weekly (UK) - - Auction News -

Just the car for the sum­mer, His­torics’ first-year Thun­der­bird was lovely in­side, out­side and un­der the bon­net, and a credit to those who’d car­ried out the body-off-frame restora­tion. The pan­el­work was in nigh-on new or­der and the paint, bar some marks un­der the fuel filler, very pleas­ing. The al­most-as-new theme continued in­side where the seats, car­pet and dash­board had been supremely well pre­pared. Add in the de­tailed en­gine bay – plus the fact this had a three-speed man­ual rather than an au­to­matic trans­mis­sion – and this re­ally was a gem, and bet­ter value than an XK120.
