This is pretty decent write-up on the old t-birds. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Thunderbird#1955-1957_.22Classic_Birds.22_or_.22Little_Birds.22

The original 1955 T-Bird ran very hot and became quite uncomfortable for the driver and passenger. Easiest way to spot a 1956 is the rectangular vent just ahead of both doors to dissipate that heat. Not too many other differences that I'm aware of. the 1957 was the last of the two-seaters and had tai fins. This is the most collectible T-Bird and the "F" model was even offered with a supercharger.
