Classic Car Overview

Its without a doubt one of the most stylish and iconic cars ever to catch the fancy of the American car buying public. Just one glance at this 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible will conjure up images of the early days of rock and roll, malt shops and drive-in movies. Its powered by what is almost certainly its original engine and will arrive at its next destination with a collection of build receipts to document its meticulous restoration, as well as maintenance records to attest to the time and effort thats gone into keeping it in top form. Even though more than six decades have gone by since the first generation of T-Birds rolled out, they remain instantly recognizable - even to non-enthusiasts - as theyve been such a part of American culture that weve been admiring them from afar for a long time. The distinctive Coral Sand exterior on this specimen is certainly an attention getter, and those fender skirts in back really complete the overall appearance. Theres plenty of chrome on display here, and all of it - the intricate front grille just below the universally recognized Thunderbird emblem, the sturdy, but stylish front and rear bumpers, the eye-catching Thunderbird script and front fender vents - looks great. The exterior alignment on this beloved classic is precise, with even gaps surrounding the doors, hood and deck lid. When inclement weather calls for shelter, theres an accompanying white accessory hard top included for protection that features a set of stylish porthole windows. <BR. The white vinyl interior has been left almost entirely in stock configuration and is in solidly road ready condition. The clean bench seat with its tuck and roll surface, bracketed by door panels that are free from discoloration, is pretty darned compelling and the stretch of textured chrome that runs from the tops of the doors before merging with the dash area is in good form. This is a fairly compact interior - though by no means cramped- so the storage space available behind the bench seat definitely comes in handy. Just beyond the matching white stock steering wheel, the dash area is nice and clean, with a clear assortment of gauges in the instrument cluster and a solid looking dash pad above. Air conditioning is a welcome yet often overlooked amenity in a vintage drop top like this one, but its on board here and working just fine to keep things comfortable and the added AM/FM/Cassette system stands by to provide your tunes while youre on the road. Theres factory-correct power underneath the hood in the form of a 312 cubic inch V8. Its fed by a 4-barrel carb and dressed in a pair of original branded Thunderbird valve covers and chrome air cleaner that look great - adding another element of authenticity inside a tidy engine bay. The powerplant starts up promptly and accelerates well, pairing with an also period correct 3-speed automatic transmission to form a very solid drivetrain. Ford put some effort into providing a top notch driving experience when they configured this T-Bird, equipping it with power brakes that feature discs up front and power steering for low-effort stops and navigation. The undercarriage below is unusually clean -a welcome yet uncommon sight in a car more than 60 years old - with suspension and steering components that appear surprisingly fresh. This classic among classics sits on a set of outstanding Thunderbird wheels with color matched surfaces that frame their Ford hub caps perfectly and are outfitted with whitewalls to complement the cars thorough authenticity. With its iconic look and exhilarating open-air driving experience, this 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible is a definite must see . Call today!
