Details about this Classic Car Ford Thunderbird 1959
Nostalgia Classic Cars is pleased to offer this Ford Thunderbird 1959 with automatic transmission and original 81,183 miles only. This car, that we are proud to present, has recently been restored to the bare metal internally and externally.
The Ford Thunderbird is a rear wheel drive automobile which was manufactured by Ford in the US over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005. The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known as the personal luxury car.
In 1958, the Thunderbird gained a second row of seats and was considerably larger, with a longer 113.0 inches (2,870 mm) wheelbase to accommodate the new back seat. This also increased the car's weight significantly.
The 1959 car received a new grille and a newly optional 350 horsepower (260 kW) 430 cu in (7.0 L).
