First Sold in Las Vegas where in 1990 it was restored and painted Flame Red. Second owner bought it from the shop and spent time in Georgia before bringing it to Central NY where it has been kept in a Garage for the last 17 years. Though still in great shape and runs and drives, it needs to be brought back to show standards. We hope to do this over the course of the winter as we are planning to return to Georgia with it in Retirement.

The 1955 two-seat Ford Thunderbird is among the most recognized. The mass media often has mistakenly called any sporty looking car, such as the Ford Mustang, a "sports car." It's given the 1955 Thunderbird the same description, although Ford stressed from the get-go that its new baby was a "personal car." The 1955 "T-Bird" was America's second mass-produced sports car from a large domestic automaker, right behind the Chevrolet Corvette. They saw that British sports cars, such as the MG and Jaguar, drew lots of attention and sold relatively well here.
