Thunderbird #1 will be sold at No Reserve during the 38th Annual Barrett-Jackson Collector Car Event in Scottsdale, Ariz., Jan. 11-18, 2009. The Raven Black 1955 T-Bird was produced by Ford Motor Company on Sept. 9, 1954, and represents the birth of Ford’s sports car program.
Penned by Ford designer Frank Hershey, the original Thunderbird was a hit among sports car fans across America and became an instant competitor for the Chevrolet Corvette. This T-Bird is equipped with a 292 Y-block engine, Fordomatic (automatic) transmission, power steering, power windows and power seats.
