1955 was the first production year for the Ford Thunderbird, developed to compete directly with Chevy’s Corvette. In 1955, the T-Bird outsold the Corvette by a margin of 26 to 1. Porthole windows were added in 1956, though some shops customized 1955 models with these windows. Starting with a 102” wheelbase, once other mods were included, these cars could be turned into mind-blowing gassers.
1955 T-Bird Gasser, Red – 10” long, features raised front end, front bumper removed, injector stacks, fenderwell headers, mag wheels, piecrust slicks, ladder bars, hardtop with porthole windows.
