1956 Thunderbird had a frame off restoration in the late 90's by Heinz Restoration. Heinz Restoration only worked on 1955-1957 Thunderbirds, and prided themselves in restoring these vehicles back to their original condition.
This Thunderbird has been in our family since approximately 1971 where it was bought for $600. The car was a daily driver for a few years and then has been kept inside since then.
The car has Kelsey Hayes wheels. I only have the hard top for the car.
The car has had less than 100 miles put on it since it was restored. The car is in "almost" perfect condition. There are no chips or dings or scratches on the paint, but there are a couple minute bubbles, which is to be expected with an older restoration. Chrome is like new.
Starts and runs well. Everything works as it should. I am good friends with a well renowned T-Bird expert from California who has since moved to Kansas, and he has helped me maintain the mechanics over the past decade.
The car is Fiesta Red in color, which matches it's paint code.
Please let me know if you have any questions. Feel free to call as well. 620-344-2249 - Justin
