1956 Thunderbird: Dream car

The 1956 Thunderbird was my ultimate dream car but that dream never materialized and surely won't now that it is a classic automobile.

This same 1956 Thunderbird is being sold on Ebay for $65,000 which doesn’t include shipping if it has to be shipped. It is the highest price 1956 Thunderbird but it only has 300 miles since the engine has been rebuilt.

The second most expensive 1956 Thunderbird has 82,510 miles but still is selling for $63,000. There are no bids on either Thunderbird.

One 1956 Thunderbird has had five bids but none of the bids have  met the reserve price. The current high bid is at $8,988.

Another of the 1956 Thunderbirds has a buy it now price of $35,000 but the high bid is $11,100 with two days left in the auction.

Sadly unless Ford changes its mind there will never be another Thunderbird built since Ford hasn’t built a new one since the 2005 model year.
