Thunderbird Special, gorgeous features! 75,000 mile survivor.

Gorgeous 56 Victoria with Thinderbird Special motor. This one is stunning with great colors, a continental kit and those sparkling wire wheels. It is claimed to be an excellent survivor. 75,260 actual miles. Virgin body, only 1 repaint, original interior. Never been hit or rusted, repainted only 1 time in 1981 in it's original colors.

EXTERIOR: Claimed to be a no hit, no rust body. It is straight everywhere, body panels are square. It is smooth all along the bottoms, no bubbles. Repainted only 1 time back in 1981. Factory Goldenglow yellow-colonial white colors it was born with. The paint is striking, it is glossy and shows real well. If you are inspecting it you will find minor flaws. The shiny chrome and trim are original except rechromed bumpers and door handles. The stainless is straight and shiny. All the glass is crystal clear. It has electric wipers.

INTERIOR: Claimed to be original interior. The upholstery still looks great. The carpet may have been replaced. It does have the optional padded dash which is in mint condition. All the instruments, knobs, heater controls are excellent. It does have a retro stereo fit in the factory location. There's an owner's manual in the glove box. The original white perforated headliner is very nice, the door panels look very nice. The interior light still works.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: "Thunderbird Special" which is the 292 motor 4 barrel carb and dual exhaust. Dressed with Thunderbird finned valve covers. It's completely stock- correct air cleaner, manifolds and "teapot" carb. It features factory power steering. First year for 12 volt battery system. Overall very clean and tidy.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Big rock solid trunk compartment. All nice clean metal with the original white paint. It has a new trunk liner and seat divider. It has a white wall tire that's never been used on a yellow rim for a spare. It also has the complete jack assembly too.

UNDERSIDE: Rock solid. It has factory undercoat/sound deadener still applied. The front end looks like it has been gone through. Several components look recent- control arm bushings, shocks, sway bar bolts. The rear shocks and leaf springs were replaced. The power steering hoses and control valve were replaced. It has dual exhaust with Schmitty mufflers for that old school sound. The bottom of the motor is clean. The Ford-o-matic trans looks clean. It has 3.23 gears in back. The e-brake assembly is hooked up.

I do believe the claims of being a well preserved survivor. It is a clean, unabused Victoria. It is dressed to impress, gorgeous car!

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
Our salesmen are happy to assist with descriptions and making sure your questions are answered. One great suggestion is letting us do a walk around video that explains the car's condition in detail.
