Lot 023: 1956 FORD THUNDERBIRD

Van Dijk Collection, H&H Sales Limited (3 October 2005)

Finished in fiesta red with off-white hardtop and complimentary two-tone upholstery, this particular left-hand drive example has been part of the collection since 1989. Carrying the larger V8 mated to three-speed manual transmission (or so its VIN tag would imply), its interior boasts a 'Swift Sure' power brake pedal, electric windows, 'Town & Country' radio and aluminium dashboard / door trim inserts. Under the bonnet, its chrome plated air filter and 'See Clear' washer fluid bag both look original. Benefiting from Hella H4 headlamps, it wears a Classic International Thunderbird Club sticker.
