1955 Ford Thunderbird Goldenrod Yellow Description

1955 Ford Thunderbird Convertible Chassis Number:P5FH245831Decoded: P=292 cid V8 engine; 5=1955; F=Dearborn, MI assembly; H=Thunderbird convertible; 245831 = 145,831st Ford scheduled for assembly at Dearborn. Engine: 292 cid OHV “Y-Block” V84-barrel Carburetor/198 bhp / 3-speed Ford-O-Matic Automatic Transmission/Power Assisted Four Wheel Hydraulic Drum BrakesLooking under the hood of this gorgeous Thunderbird, you will notice that on the data plate under the “Color” entry is the letter “V”. That represents one of the most outstanding colors applied to the T-bird, Goldenrod Yellow. Introduced towards the latter part of the model year, the Goldenrod Yellow T-birds are treasured among collectors, as well they should be. This example has been treated to a full Minter's restoration during which time, a couple of convenience upgrades were included. The electrical system was changed to the more popular 12-volts and for cool summertime cruising a modern air-conditioner has been added. Externally, this car is a fresh and pure as the day it rolled off the assembly line at the legendary Rouge plant in Dearborn. Another modern-day accessory tastefully added is a custom-fit Am-FM sound system. The engine is fitted with the accessory dress-up kit featuring finned valve covers, chrome air-cleaner and a look that cannot be beaten. Driving this car is a dream with all gauges working including the all-important tachometer and even the electric clock. Easy to adjust, the seat is power-adjustable. Original frame fitted black soft-top (not a reproduction frame), as well as a restored yellow hardtop, this beautiful example of the premier year for Thunderbird is one ride you do not want to miss out on.
