Description

This lovely T-Bird was delivered through Th. Willy AG in Zurich on the 13th August 1955. It is equipped with a 4.8 litre V8 delivering 193 SAE hp, a three speed manual gearbox, black softtop as well as the desirable hardtop with the typical bullseye openings. The car received a partial restoration in the 1980s with a new interior. The original “Continental kit” was removed but will be supplied with the car. The original registration document from 1955, the original service booklet as well as sundry maintenance records dating back to 1975 are available. In 2020 the carburetor, the front suspension and front brakes were overhauled. This Thunderbird with its matching numbers engine and its complete history also boasts the coveted FIVA ID and has been driven a mere 119’000 kilometers in the hands of three owners. It is in very good unrestored and remarkably original condition and the last Swiss Veteran MOT was completed in May 2014.
