Seven Hills Motorcars is very proud to offer this beautiful 1956
Ford Thunderbird spectacular condition. This Ford looks
outstanding, runs great, and is a very nice driver. It comes with both the
soft-top, auxiliary hardtop, and tonneau cover. This is an excellent opportunity
to own a classic Thunderbird that is ready to be used and enjoyed at an
unbeatable value. The car is
finished in the beautiful and desirable color combination of
Fiesta Red (K) over Red and White interior
(XB). This is the correct and original color scheme as
verified by the codes on the data tag pictured below. Please
peruse all of the photos, video, and other information
below to get a true sense of clean and nice this Thunderbird really is.
As a side note, this Ford is not a dealer auction vehicle.
We hand pick each car after careful inspection. Our
classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone
that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.
We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the
car inspected. Please take the time to scrutinize each
picture. We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so
you can feel confident about your purchase. If you have a
question about the Thunderbird, just give us a call.
Red exterior is in excellent condition. As one can see in the
photos, the paint has a brilliant gloss and deep shine. The wheels are in great shape with a nice finish and no
curb rash. Original style bias ply tires are fitted on the car.
They look great and give the car more correct period appearance,
but they are also noticeable on the highway. The chrome and
other brightwork on the car looks great overall, there are a few
scuffs on the side of the chrome on the spare tire. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally
excluded from the photos. There are some very small blemishes around the car
that are too tiny so show up in the photos, but nothing that is
really noticeable from about 5 feet away. As one can seen in the many photos of the underside, this
Thunderbird looks good underneath. We have also included specific
photos of the rockers, lower front and rear quarter panels, and other areas on the
car most prone to rust to show how nice it looks.
The 2-Tone Red & White interior of the
looks absolutely fantastic. The seats are in excellent
condition with no tears, rips, or split seams. The carpet looks terrific
with no stains, rips, or holes. The door panels
look great with no cracks or splits. The tonneau cover fits
well and has not shrunken. The convertible soft top is in
good shape overall, but does have two few very small spots,
both shown in the photos below, worn through and the left
rear latch is difficult to secure. The
dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, or sun damage.

appears to be in good mechanical condition. The engine starts right
away every time, idles smooth, and runs great. It is a nice driver that feels nice on the road. In the video below one can observe the car accelerating
onto the highway, shifting through all the
gears, braking to a stoplight, and going through some curves.
Please note that it shifts well, runs great, there are no
strange noises or vibrations, and the car performs quite nice
overall for a 1950's vehicle. The shifter feels good, it is
tight, and the clutch feels good. The brakes are responsive and
do not pull to one side or the other. There is no
blue smoke when starting or driving the car. It runs cool and does
not overheat according to the gauge. Also, the engine bay is clean, nicely detailed,
and correct as one can see from the photos. The horn
works as do all the exterior lights, interior light,
indicators, and fan for the heater. The temperature gauge and
fuel gauge work. The speedometer needs a new cable and
the wiper doe snot work. It
is a pleasure it is
to drive this car, especially with the top down on a beautiful

in nice high quality driver condition and is a true bargain at our
asking price. There is no way a similar car could be
purchased and restored to this level for anything near
our asking price. We were told by the pervious owner
that this Thunderbird was originally built and intended
to be an export car. It was sold at the port in New
Jersey before it was sold overseas, but that is why the
speedometer is in kilometers, not miles per hour. Classic cars have proven the be a
great investment over the past decade.
Thank you for looking and please do not
hesitate to email or call with any questions.
