Classic Car Overview

1957 Ford Thunderbird $59,900

Charlotte, NC White · 312 V8 · 266 miles
Purchased by its most dedicated owner on January 1st, 1958, this largely-original T-bird was daily driven until sometime around 1973 when it was stashed in storage. No one really knows why that happened. But it probably wasnt due to mechanical failure, since the cars aforementioned owner also ran a respected auto repair business that was well known around the Greensboro, North Carolina area. At any rate, the owner began collecting spare Ford parts in preparation for a ground-up restoration. And that restoration began sometime in the early 80s, with a complete overhaul of the cars frame and drivetrain. Sadly, while restoring the car, the owner began to develop dementia and, naturally, the restoration was sidelined in the name of more important things. Fast-forward roughly 25 years to the Spring of 2015 when the Fords current owner was notified of its inclusion in an estate sale. The current owner, having restored Thunderbirds in the past, was delighted to find a fantastic, rust-free project that merely needed finishing. And in February of 2016, this Thunderbird hit the road as a clean, body-off restored classic that wraps all-original sheetmetal around a roster of original components. Tilt this Fords lightweight hood and youll find a 312 cubic inch Thunderbird V8 that, fully rebuilt in the mid-80s, has been recently overhauled with fresh bearings and seals. Behind that Y-block, an overhauled Ford-O-Matic 3-speed spins power to what appears to be a traditional Ford 9-inch. The cars suspension remains in its original configuration, with control arms up front and leafs out back. Turns come courtesy of lucid steering. Braking is quick and adequate thanks to power-assisted drums. And on the outside of those drums, color-keyed wheels spin 205/75R14 American Classic whitewalls around white-trimmed center caps. If theres one phrase that describes this awesome classic, it would be luxury sport . Call, click or visit http://RKMotorsCharlotte.com today!
