1955 Thunderbird looking for a New Home
Hello- My name is George Rosenstock and I live in Berlin MD on the eastern shore.
I want to sell my 55 T bird as I no longer am interested in cruising, my wife passed last year and all the fun has gone with her. I am 80 and not able to give the car the TLC it requires.
The particulars are: 1955 Tbird- 292 V8- four barrel, dual exhaust, automatic transmission.
Torch red (painted in 1986), paint used was Imron and has spidered so a repaint is advised if interested in showing.
Original non-porthole white hardtop, after-market soft top.
Interior is black and white, carpet is good, seats are excellent (replaced during restoration).
Tires are radials with wide white-walls and after-market wire hubcaps.
Just replaced carb, needs oil change and some run time.
Radio has been replaced by cassette am-fm type.
Trunk area in excellent condition with full-size spare.
Manual windows, manual steering, manual brakes.
No rust, garage kept for over 40 years, some very minor paint scratches on headlight cowl.
Converted to 12 volt with alternator, all lights converted to 12 volts. Has electronic distributor. (Tachometer does not work because of distributor change)
Looking to sell this spring/summer. Price is negotiable, looking for mid 20's
Shop manual goes with car, Ford original, very rare with illustrations and specifications.

Late Model Thunderbird Engine for Sale
I have a 4.6 Liter V8 motor from a ’95 T-bird, which was T-boned, destroying the body, but the Motor was still running strong.
I have put 350k on these motors before, and this one had about 95k.
Anyway, I’ve had several of these cars and decided to pull and keep the motor as a spare (in case I ever needed it- but I never did).
Since then, I’ve eventually sold off all of my T-birds, and so, no longer have a use for it.
It seems to me that it would still be useful to someone interested in restoring T-birds of that vintage.
I immediately mounted it onto an engine stand, and it has been stored in my well-sealed garage for the past 8 years or so.
I would be interested in selling it to a person who could need it, but I’m not needing much for it.
I would probably be willing to take any reasonable offer, and would throw in the Engine stand for good measure.
Someone would simply need a truck with a sufficient wench to lift it and carry it off.
I live in Northeastern Maryland (Cecil County).
