Description:

If you like watching auctions on TV, then you might have seen this stunning 1957 Ford Thunderbird cross the block at Barrett-Jackson in 2011. And yes, you saw that correctly, it sold for more than $88,000. Given how this Dusk Rose ''Bird looks today, it was worth every penny. Today, however, you can buy this lovely Thunderbird at a substantial discount and still well under the cost of restoration, which was surely into six figures. The factory didn''t build many Dusk Rose Thunderbirds in 1957, but somehow we''ve managed to get more than one in our showroom. Coincidence or luck? You decide, but this one is unquestionably one of the finest Thunderbirds we''ve ever represented. The restoration is only a few years old and was done to exacting standards that make this car stand out in an already crowded field. The sheetmetal is ultra-straight, gaps are tight, the doors fit beautifully, and even the troublesome areas in the rear wheel arches are spotless. Clearly this ''Bird has lived a charmed life. In addition, all the chrome was restored to show standards with glittering clarity in the bumpers, exquisite shine in the grille and side trim, and wonderfully detailed taillights. They were never this nice in 1957, by the way. Pastels are the ultimate in 1950s fashion and the white leather interior works well with the Dusk Rose paint to give this ''Bird a feminine look that remains timeless. The seat is so blindingly white that you might never feel like you''re clean enough to sit behind the wheel, and the matching door panels are so beautifully detailed that you''ll admire them every time you get in the car. Freshly rebuilt gauges in a bright engine-turned panel give you the full Thunderbird experience, and you''ll note that modern A/C has been neatly and almost invisibly integrated into the dash. It also includes an AM/FM radio that does a pretty good impersonation of the original unit, as well as a white porthole hardtop with stand. 1956''s spare tire moved back inside the trunk, where it''s surrounded by a correct mat and a proper jack assembly. The engine is a D-code 312 cubic inch Y-block V8 topped by a 4-barrel carburetor and making 245 horsepower. Marvelously detailed with Ford Red on the block, a Thunderbird dress-up kit with finned valve covers, and a chrome air cleaner, this is a special engine bay that demands to be shown off. Expertly detailed for show, the only non-original components are those for the A/C system, but the installation is so clean and professional that most folks probably won''t even notice. The exhaust manifolds have been refinished and treated to a protective ceramic coating, and feed a correct dual exhaust system with outlets in the rear bumper. The chassis is completely detailed and ready for show with just a quick wipe-down, and with a 3-speed Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, it''s a pleasure to drive. Gorgeous Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels are a desirable option, and wear 7.80-14 wide whites to complete the look. Stunning is the only word for cars like this Thunderbird. Available at a discount, this is pure 1950s fun that couldn''t be duplicated for anywhere near the asking price. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
