The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet's new sports car, the Corvette, which was publicly unveiled in prototype form just a month prior. Under rapid development, the Thunderbird went from drawing board to prototype in about a year, being unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show on 20th February 1954. It was manufactured by Ford in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through to 2005. The second to fourth generation Thunderbird convertibles were similar in design to the Lincoln convertible of the time and borrowed from earlier Ford hardtop/convertible designs. While these Thunderbird models had a true convertible soft top, the top was lowered to stow in the boot area, considerably reducing available boot space when the top was down. The overall appearance was a sleek look with no trace of a convertible top at all.This 1956 Thunderbird can only be described as beautiful, and has the desirable porthole hardtop along with the contrasting soft top. Imported into the UK in January 2016, the car obviously saw little or no rain in its former life and has benefitted from a £15,000 recommissioning by its owner who has used it sparingly since its UK registration. The 4,800cc, V8 engine performs well and sounds exquisite and 827 XVF is finished in gleaming white with a contrasting black and white leather interior. Oceans of chromework and overall excellent condition make this a stunning looking T-Bird. The car is supplied to auction with a V5C registration document and a fresh MoT test certificate. Thunderbirds as good as this are hard to find, there are very few driving experiences that can compete.The health and safety of both our customers and team remains the utmost priority, we are therefore operating to COVID-19 guidelines throughout viewing and auction day.
