VEHICLE DESCRIPTION

Used 1959 Ford Thunderbird for sale in Phoenix, Arizona

Gateway Classic Cars of Scottsdale is pleased to feature this second generation 1959 Ford Thunderbird marketed for sale with our Arizona showroom, located in North Phoenix. The “Squarebird, as the 1958-60 T-Birds were known, represented a sharp redirection from the original 2-seat convertibles that were a sales success and handily outsold Corvettes in the mid-50s. This was the baby-boomer era though- an American consumer with growing families desired more space in their vehicles for the whole family and their luggage. Therefore, the sporty heritage of the original T-Bird had to be refined for a little more practicality. This 59 comes painted in a head-turning Dark Blue color with all kinds of stylish features to set your eyes on from rear body fins to the wide pillar roof and chrome dual taillight surrounds. A desirable “Continental Kit or sporty spare wheel carrier mounted on the back of the car adds to the glamorous look of this Squarebird. Most Thunderbirds were ordered with a 352 CID V8 which was rated at 300hp although the weight of the car means you probably wont see a sub-10 second 0-60. Thats ok though; this car was built to cruise. Thats what youll get with a 3-speed automatic transmission that was recently rebuilt (according to the seller) and shifts this Ford through the gears with smoothness and purpose. Other recent maintenance records the owner has on this T-Bird from the last few years would be a new starter, rebuilt power steering, new radiator, shocks, and a generator/voltage regulator. The interior of this 59 T-Bird appears remarkably original with two-tone Blue vinyl bucket seats up front separated by a center console, a large 3-spoke chrome steering wheel with horn ring, gauge set with 140mph speedometer and Ford “Magic Aire controls for heat/ventilation. The only visible upgrade looks to be the integrated “retro stereo with AM/FM/Cassette. Squarebirds like this one are desirable in the collector car market and its easy to see why as there was almost nothing comparable on late 50s American showroom floors. Isnt it time you bought something thatll get everyones attention?!
