1955 is the first year for the “Baby Bird” first generation two-seat Thunderbird. Part sports car, part luxury car, Ford called it a “personal car” upon its introduction. It created a sensation and led to the “personal luxury car” segment. This blue ‘Bird has the 292 Y-block V8 with the signature finned Thunderbird valve covers. An interesting feature on the car is the hood scoop. It functions to let air in, and under the hood the air cleaner is configured to what would be referred to as a ram air system in later years. The performance aspect of the car is further validated by the factory tach, seldom seen in the fifties. This car has all the Thunderbird cues too, such as a removable hardtop, fender skirts, floor shift, power seats, and what many feel is the ultimate wheel and tire combination for the car -- chrome spoke wheels on beautiful wide whitewall tires.
