JIMMY GIMINEZ 1956 T-BIRD FOR SALE
Built for Jimmy Giminez by Joe Ortiz and Tony Del Rio from Hayward, California over a two year period. This historical custom won big awards at the Grand National Car Show in 1962. (UPDATE, August 19, Auction has ended reserve was not met, car did not sell)
The completely restyled front end features two grille cavities encompassing the Edsel quad lights. All body seams have been hammer-welded to avoid an excess of leading. The rear has been extended 18 inches in a unique manner. The tunneled fins house 59 Merc blinkers. The interior uses two streamlined head rests which were created from headlight buckets. Jerry Sahagon was responsible for the original interior.
This is how Jimmy’s 1956 T-Bird looked in the early 1960’s when it was displayed at the famous car shows.
The car is completely rebuilt in recent years by Ron Bueno and unfortunately updated with some modern stuff. But most of that can be removed and the car can be brought back to how it looked in the early 1960’s.
