Complete with extensive documentation, this iconic convertible has been driven less than 9,000 miles since receiving a high-quality restoration that was completed in the late 1990s. It has been donated by a long-time museum supporter who purchased it at the 2017 New England Auto Auction™.

Less than 9,000 Miles!
Manufactured from 1955 to 1957, the first generation of the Ford Thunderbird is among America’s most prominent and widely-recognized automobiles. Developed in response to the Corvette, these 2-door convertibles sidestepped a sports car rivalry by offering the masses something truly unique: a personal luxury car that was both stylish and practical. With clean lines and flashy proportions, the Thunderbird has captivated American consumers from the start, selling an estimated 53,000 during the first generation’s 3-year production run.
