Ford Thunderbird Special Supercharged 312
Ford Thunderbird Special Supercharged 312 was launched in 1955 at a manufacturing plant in Dearborn, United States of America. This car was a small, by those criteria of the years, two-seater convertible. The whole model range is Ford.
Externally, Ford looked quite fresh and original. The car was distinguished by a moderate use of shiny decorations. Straight lines, a little bit angular, but tempting bodywork American drivers liked very much. Thunderbird was designed to be a compact personal and luxurious car, which does not pretend to be a sports car.
The car had for those times a magnificent wide spectrum of conveniences, among which adjustment of a steering column on an inclination and a departure, application of the electric drive of glasses on each side, a radio antenna and sitting in 4 orientations. The ford was one head taller than the first generation Corvette, which was considered a direct competitor in the automotive market.
The debut generation (1955-1957) of the Ford Thunderbird Special Supercharged 312 was supplied with a 193-horsepower Y-Block V8 engine with a volume of 4.8 liters. The driver was offered an optional three-speed, manual or automatic transmission with a lever mounted on the floor.
This serious and still popular American car can be purchased at the limit of $373308.
