<hr><p>This 1956 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Removable Hardtop (<strong>Stock #</strong> <strong>B11430</strong>) is available in our Benicia, CA showroom and any inquiries may be directed to us at <strong>707-748-4000</strong> or via email at Sales@SpecialtySales.com.</p><hr><p><strong><span style="color: rgb(184, 49, 47); font-size: 18px;">Sensational 1956 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop</span></strong></p><p>New to our Benicia showroom is this beautiful 1956 Ford Thunderbird 2 Door Removable Hardtop with teal exterior paint and a matching teal/white vinyl interior.  You’ll find a freshly rebuilt 292 cid V-8 engine under the hood with an automatic transmission, both of which the current owner claims to be original to this classic.  This example is in excellent overall condition as well and one of the most original, beautifully maintained classics we’ve come across in many years.</p><hr><p><strong><span style="color: rgb(184, 49, 47); font-size: 18px;">Three Owner Classic w/ Same Neighbors Since New</span></strong></p><p>The current owner of this 1956 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop is the third to own it, although it has remained within the same neighborhood its entire life.  The original owner enjoyed it throughout the 50’s and 60’s before finally storing it inside a barn.  A neighbor then purchased it in 1979 (the father of the current owner) and spent the next several years restoring it himself, one nut and bolt at a time.  The restoration was completed in the Fall of 1982 and it has been driven less than 1,000 miles since that time- mainly to local car shows and for the 2<sup>nd</sup> owner’s daughter to drive away in after her marriage in 1984. The original motor was just rebuilt this past month as well and driven a total of 25 miles since that time. </p><p>This outstanding classic was then passed to the 2nd owner’s son and has remained in storage since that time, except to back it down the driveway once each week or occasionally drive around the block.  We do have extensive documentation available charting the restoration effort as well including photos of when the drivetrain was pulled.  We also have the original owner’s manual on hand and the current owner believes that the factory engine is still installed.  While he does not have any proof, he informs us that his father checked the engine block code during the early 80’s restoration and it matched up.</p><hr><p><strong><span style="font-size: 18px; color: rgb(184, 49, 47);">Freshly Rebuilt Engine with 7 Year/100k Mile Warranty</span></strong></p><p>In terms of its present condition, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird still shines nicely and captures your attention.  There are some issues with the paint so the next owner may opt for a respray, but virtually everything else about this beautiful classic is well above the typical driver standard.  The two-tone interior in particular really stands out since it’s very close to like-new condition throughout.  The ride quality and driving experience is also excellent so this one can be enjoyed right away.</p><p>Additionally, the current owner just had the original block rebuilt and the service work includes a full 7 year/100,000 mile warranty.  The motor sounds outstanding and the performance is on par with original factory specifications.  it must be seen (and test driven) to truly appreciate the quality of this classic automobile.</p><hr><p><strong><span style="color: rgb(184, 49, 47); font-size: 18px;">Painstakingly Restored in the Early 1980’s to Epic Levels</span></strong></p><p>Overall, this 1956 Ford Thunderbird Removable Hardtop is an incredible, well-maintained classic that would make a fantastic addition to any serious collector.  This one will not last long at the current asking price and one lucky owner is going to fall in love with it.  For more information about this vehicle, visit our Benicia, California showroom, give us a call at <strong>707-748-4000</strong>, or email us at Sales@SpecialtySales.com.  Be sure to mention <strong>Stock # B11430 </strong>as well.</p><p>Legal Disclosures: Specialty Sales Classics has advertised and sold thousands of classic cars since our founding in 1978. We strongly encourage any and all buyers who are unable to view the vehicle in-person to perform a Pre-Purchase Inspection (by an independent party of their choosing) prior to the purchase.  Given the age of many of our vehicles, it is extremely difficult to adequately describe all aspects of each vehicles condition in the limited space available and we have learned that these Pre-Purchase Inspections are helpful to all parties involved.</p><p>The information for this vehicle was provided by the current owner and it is not certified by Specialty Sales Classics. Therefore, it is in no way guaranteed as a basis of purchase. Any statements such as original or numbers-matching should be verified independently by the buyer prior to purchase.</p>
