This factory service manual reprint, covers 1956 Ford Cars and Thunderbird, powered by 6-cylinder (223 c.i.) and V8 (272, 292, 312 c.i.) engines. The content of this 368 page shop manual was written by Ford, for their dealership mechanics back when these cars were new. This comprehensive guide provides the correct information for service and repair on these vintage vehicles. Because it was written by the manufacturer, you can take comfort that the procedures and specifications are accurate, complete and efficient. In addition to the thorough text instructions, you'll also find a huge number and variety of visual aids. There are tables, black and white photographs, illustrations, cutaway views, diagrams, exploded views, wiring diagrams and more.
In the popular 1973 George Lucas film American Graffiti, the cars played as many of the starring roles as the actors and actresses. Suzanne Somers character served as the elusive, beautiful, blonde driving a classy 1956 white Thunderbird. The pair certainly made for a lasting image.
Movies weren't the only entertainment outlet to find the appeal of Ford's "personal car". Years later, the Beach Boys would find chart success with Fun, Fun, Fun, a song about a girl who takes out the Thunderbird to study at the library, but winds up cruising and hot-rodding until her father finds out and takes away the keys.
Having just debuted the year before to instant success, there wasn't all that much to change on the Thunderbird, but they did certainly find things upon which to improve. When it's time to work on your classic T-bird, or one of the other great 1956 Ford cars, be sure to use this newly-printed and packaged version of the same manual originally written by the manufacturer and provided to the professional mechanics at their dealerships.
