General Information: The Ford Thunderbird Convertible
was 2nd of 4 limited edition cars in Daum's convertible series.
It is styled after the actual 1956 Thunderbird. Originally meant
to be a limited edition run of 2500 pieces, Daum never produced
close to this number of cars. This car originally came with a Certificate
of Authenticity which was hand numbered to match the serial number
of the car, and a metal nameplate with the car's name silkscreened
on it. The original box label was also hand numbered to match the
car's serial number. This car was designed by Xavier Froissart.
I have now verified the actual edition size of the Ford Thunderbird
Convertible, with some help from people in high places! Only 183
Ford Thunderbird Convertibles were actually produced and sold by
Daum, making this car the rarest of the four convertibles.
I have been fortunate to acquire S/N "EA 1" of the '56
Ford Thunderbird to add to my collection. This very unique piece,
which is not otherwise serialized, was according to Xavier Froissart
the first piece off the production line, and should be considered
to be S/N 0/2500. This piece is also personally signed by Xavier
Froissart, and comes with a custom made, one of a kind name plate,
and custom made shoebox style box with black foam interior, similiar
to the DB5 or MKII. See pictures below.
