to see this cool classic 1956 Ford Thunderbird for sale from Sunset Classics in Minneapolis MN.
This 1956 Ford Thunderbird is a popular favorite among enthusiasts as it is the only year that has the ornamental continental kit and resulting more spacious trunk. Thunderbird Green (or Sage Green) was only offered in 1956. Combined with a green and white interior, this color combination is stunning.
This 1956 was a nearly perfect, unrestored example until just a few years ago. The car was in for an engine rebuild when the shop suffered a fire. Luckily this car was the closest to the door and was pushed out before it caught fire, but the heat from the blaze was enough to harden the rubber on the car, and the foam spray used by the fire department was enough to harm the original paint. It was a shame for sure, but it was enough to justify a complete frame off restoration. Starting with such a nice, original and straight car helped this restoration end up with one of the finest restored examples out there today. The restoration took 6 years and every last nut, bolt and part was removed and rebuilt. The end result shown here for sale is stunning.
