Highlighted by a stunning black and yellow two-tone interior, this Goldenrod Yellow 1955 Thunderbird has been the recipient of an outstanding concours-quality rotisserie restoration. The panel fit is correct on a very straight body; as expected, all paint and chrome is in concours condition. The black Haartz soft-top fits like new and the engine compartment is reported to be 100-percent correct down to the proper Ford hoses and clamps. The car has been described as "a piece of jewelry."

The 1955 Thunderbird is powered by a 292-cid, 198-hp Y-block V-8 engine. This unit is connected to an optional Fordomatic automatic transmission. Among the other equipment on the Ford are a radio, wire wheel hubcaps, whitewall tires; power seat, steering and brakes.
