Classic Car Overview

The 1957 Ford Thunderbird is an iconic classic. So, it just gets better when you find one where it has a great shining color combo, removable hardtop, proper V8 power, and a solid investment in the chrome so it shines as bright as your nostalgia. The 57 T-bird had the sleekest look of the first generation, and so the sporty red paint just seems fitting. And its a quality application that upholds the premium image you demand from Fords personal luxury cruiser. Plus, theres nice panel alignment that means you can close the doors with confidence, the fender skirts follow the contour of the body, and there are crisp lines that give you the jet-inspired tailfins. And the complete brightwork package means you get to see the details you love, like the artful front bumper, hood scoop, turbine-style wheel covers, and the exhaust still exits neatly through the rear bumper. The porthole hardtop is practically an icon all on its own. It looks good in white, especially since it matches with whitewall tires. If you like the red and white look with the hardtop on, then youll love to know you get the same appeal when youre open to the world, too. There was a nice investment here keeping the two-tone well intertwined. In fact, the white is used to draw added attention places, like the ribbed inserts of the seat and T-bird logo door panels. Even the dash follows this theme with a smooth red on top with white accenting and a white steering wheel. The machined-turned lower dash panel has all the classic pieces there for display purposes, including the heat/defrost sliders and AM radio. The details are nice with the working courtesy light and sporty gauge package. Even the trunk has a stock, correct, and clean look, right down to the stand-up spare tire. Since you have a bold red car, its great to lift the hood and see a bold red block. The engine bay not only has a tidy look thats ready to show off, but also it has nice details, like the Thunderbird valve covers and correct polished air grabber. This is Fords 292 cubic-inch V8 topped with a four-barrel carburetor. Thats proper blue oval power, and the way it fires up with gusto signals it has been treat with proper respect. And so youll love taking full control with the three-speed manual transmission. This is the sharp-looking and smooth-driving T-bird youve always wanted. So dont let an awesome cruiser like this slip through tour fingers. Call today!!!
