Capitol Records Celebrity 1955 Thunderbird Franklin Mint photo

Franklin Mint /  1/24 Black; black & white interior; removable hardtop; sit's on display stand with Celebrity Billboard behind it. limited to 1000. retails at $195.  Now in hand.  bummer - it has windwings, sunvisors, 56 steering wheel, and 56 seats,12 volt battery, no radio antenna but there is a radio showing on the dash panel. Not very authentic to 1955, and not as detailed as one would expect for the price..Read my blog for more.  In real size it would be called a 20 footer, ie, don't get too close!.

*  Some cars are rather generic for 1955 & 1956 ie. have characteristics of both years.  If you don't see your model listed in the '56 list it may be in the '55 list.  Manufacturer of many of those models is also hard to determine so distributor's name is listed which is why some models look the same but have different "manufacturers"
