  • 79078 1

To Be OFFERED AT AUCTION WITHOUT RESERVE at RM Sothebys' The Sáragga Collection event, 20 - 21 September 2019. Estimate:30,000 - 40,000 First year of Thunderbird productionDesirable Peacock Blue over Black Ford introduced the Thunderbird at the 1954 Detroit Auto Show. The first production car rolled off the line on 9 September 1954, and when enough cars were produced, Ford introduced the car to the public on 22 October. Reportedly, dealers received 4,000 deposits, prompting the company to revise its sales estimates upward. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvette (a sports car), the Thunderbird was a personal luxury car, establishing that market segment in America, which, years later, spawned many competitors.Standard equipment included power steering, brakes, windows, and four-way seating, as well as an optional radio, heater, and choice of three-speed manual transmission or Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission. Ford produced a total of 16,155 T-birds in 1955. This example was born Raven Black over a Black and White leather interior and is equipped with the optional radio, heater, and automatic transmission. Now finished in Peacock Blue, this would be the perfect American car for European touring.Primeiro ano de produção do ThunderbirdAmbicionado azul Peacock com interior pretoA Ford apresentou o Thunderbird em 1954, no Auto Show de Detroit. A primeira unidade saiu da linha de montagem a 9 de setembro de 1954. Quando já tinha sido produzido um número suficiente de exemplares, a Ford mostrou-o ao público, a 22 de outubro. Segundo registos da época, os vários concessionários Ford receberam 4000 depósitos para reservar o novo modelo, obrigando o construtor a rever a projeção de vendas em alta. Enquanto o Chevrolet Corvette era um desportivo, o Thunderbird era um automóvel distinto e luxuoso, criando um segmento de mercado específico nos EUA onde, mais tarde, teria inúmeros concorrentes.O equipamento de série incluía direção assistida, travões com servo-freio, vidros laterais Power-Lift e bancos elétricos que se ajustam em quatro direções. Como opções, havia o rádio, o aquecimento e dois sistemas de transmissão à escolha: caixa manual de três velocidades ou caixa automática Ford-O-Matic. A Ford produziu um total de 16.155 T-birds em 1955. Este exemplar saiu de fábrica pintado de preto Raven, com interior em pele preta e branca e está equipado com rádio, aquecimento e caixa automática. Atualmente pintado em azul Peacock, seria o perfeito clássico americano para uma viagem pela Europa.To view this car and others currently consigned to this auction, please visit the RM website at rmsothebys.com/en/auctions/pg19.
