1957 Ford Thunderbird
Convertible Car for sale by RS Street Rods in Tomball, Texas 77375
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
1957 Ford Thunderbird for Sale.
As far as classics go, its pretty hard to get more iconic than this 1957 Ford Thunderbird. When the first model was released not long before this 57 debuted, the combination of style and responsive performance it offered gave rise to an entirely new classification of automobile - the personal luxury car. That niche is very well-represented right here, as this T-Bird is a solid driver, looks great both inside and out and underwent a full restoration. The black paint draped over the exterior really makes you take notice especially in contrast to its distinctive red interior.
A closer look will also reveal that the paint is in great form, with a beautiful shine and smooth uniform texture from front to back. In this era, the model featured so many aesthetic magnets to draw you in and they’re all in top shape, as well - the bumpers both fore and aft sit level and show no blemishes, the front grille looks just as it did from the start and all the other bright work onboard presents well.
The 312 cubic inch V8 sitting inside is almost certainly the original engine which was rebuilt and with its squeaky clean surfaces and chrome air cleaner and valve covers, it looks just as it did, and runs just as well, starting right up and still pulling with plenty of power. It’s paired with a Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission that shifts nicely.
The first generation T-Birds, of which this 57 is a proud member, were all about offering opulent comfort in a compact, responsive package and, in that spirit, the power steering makes navigation easy while power brakes bring low effort stops. This rolling icon represents the mid-50s in ultimate style on its set of ultra-sharp spoked wheels properly outfitted with whitewalls for just the right vintage appearance. This 1957 Ford Thunderbird offers the chance to own a classic of classics that has reaped the benefits of great care and looks and runs fantastic!
