1955 Ford Thunderbird Overview

The 1955 Ford Thunderbird was the first T-bird. Originally rolling off the line in September of 1954, the Thunderbird sold much better than even Ford could have hoped; in its first year, 16,155 Thunderbirds were sold, over 6,000 higher than the 10,000 Ford had estimated.

Helping to move the car off the line was a 292-ci Y-block V8, rated at 198 horsepower. The T-bird came standard with a fiberglass top, though many opted for the soft-top convertible cover. It sold for just under $2,700.
