This glamorous 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible is an exceptional example of why these cars are so coveted and collected today. For 1958, Ford discontinued the two-seat Thunderbird in favor of a larger, four-seat \'Square Bird\' version that was well received and was an unqualified sales success. The innovative monocoque construction allowed the new T-Bird to maintain an exceptionally low stance with an overall height of only 52.5 inches and a mere 5.3 inches of ground clearance. This rare Red beauty has been restored to a high standard and is absolutely stunning. Adding to the glamor and excitement of this Thunderbird are a set of Kelsey-Hayes style wire wheels wrapped with wide whitewall radial tires and a continental kit in the rear. The correct two-tone red and white interior is spectacular with bucket seats, console and disappearing white convertible top. Rare J-Code 430 cubic inch engine option One of only 1,168 J-code 1959 Thunderbird Convertibles Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission Kelsey-Hayes style wire wheels Wide whitewall radial tires Continental kit Power convertible top Bucket seats For 1958, the standard motor available was an X-code 352cubic inch with 235bhp and the more powerful 300bhp W-code version of the engine was an option. 1959 saw the introduction of the big 430 cubic inch J-code that was sourced directly from Lincoln producing 345 horsepower. Of the 67,456 Thunderbirds Ford produced for the 1959 model year, just 10,261 were convertibles. Of those, a mere 1,168 convertibles were optioned with the powerful J-code 430 engine, making this Thunderbird both a rare and highly desirable car. The massive 7-liter V8 is mated to the optional Cruise-O-Matic transmission and driving through a 2.91:1 rear axle. This 1959 Ford Thunderbird Convertible J-Code, beautifully restored and outfitted with the rarest and most powerful motor available, is a rare find. Call today!
