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.

Classic Car Overview

STK 2808 1957 Ford Thunderbird This 1957 Thunderbird is a rare original survivor of the iconic Ford roadster. The Thunderbird was introduced as a sporty competitor to the Corvette and many say that the Tbird actually saved the Vette from extinction. The 1957 Thunderbird, in its third model year, set a sales record with over 21,000 cars sold. It presented a new front fascia, new rear taillight/fin design and features from the previous year including a 12-volt electrical system, deep-dish safety steering wheel and hardtop w/port hole windows. Our Tbird looks very distinguished in what is stated to be the original Black finish that is still in pretty fair condition. Classic accents include rear fender skirts, wide-white tires mounted on color-matched 14 steel wheels with factory Sunburst wheel covers. A white removable hardtop (w/stand) is paired with a white manual soft top - both in very good condition. The interior is upholstered in original black/white vinyl and includes the restyled 57 instrument cluster with round gauges. The steering wheel has the telescopic feature for easy entry and there is an AM/FM/cassette stereo system, but it is currently inoperable. Horsepower is provided by a Thunderbird 312ci engine factory rated at 245hp and backed by Fords time-honored 2-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission. (The base 292ci engine came only with a manual transmission.) Our owner states that this is the original Y-block that has been totally rebuilt. It appears to be as factory and is now fitted with a Holley 600cfm 4V carburetor. One of the options of the car was the Engine Dress-up Kit with over-sized air cleaner and chrome accents. The TBird chassis is equipped with power steering and power drum brakes. There are very, very few of these classic survivor Thunderbirds around for the serious Blue Oval loyalist and this car deserves your scrutiny. ALL VEHICLES SOLD AS IS .
