Description:

For many fans of the early Thunderbird, the ''57 is the pinnacle of evolution. Learning from the previous two years, Ford substantially revised the T-Bird, adding some small fins, enlarging the grille opening, and moving the spare tire back inside the trunk. This lovely Colonial White ''Bird offers a recent paint job, great road manners, and a true ''50s feel. You simply can''t go wrong with bright red paint and a matching interior, and this T-Bird is beautifully finished in its original code V Flame Red with a code E white porthole hardtop. Bodywork is nice, with straight panels and plenty of attention to detail where it matters - note how neatly the taillight end caps fit, how crisp the character line along the side of the body appears, and the even gaps all around. Somehow the paint shop gave the modern finish a soft shine that looks straight out of the Ford factory in 1957, but with a durability that gives it a forever shine. Other details, such as the elegant Thunderbird badges, the cool rear bumper with integrated exhaust outlets, and the stainless trim on the fender skirts have all been expertly restored to new condition. That red leather interior is quite inviting with correctly stitched seat covers and what appears to be an original dash pad. Highly detailed door panels offer machine-turned panels that extend across the dash and a stylish armrest that gives the cockpit a wrap-around feel. The gauges are in well-preserved original condition with clear markings and the original Town & Country AM radio still lives in the center of the dash. New carpets, matching red rubber Thunderbird floor mats, and the beautiful ivory-colored steering wheel indicate that someone cared about doing this car right, and as with the bodywork, fit and finish are very good. Overhead there''s a white factory "porthole" hardtop and a folding soft top is included but not currently installed. They''ve also detailed the trunk correctly with a proper plaid mat and matching full-sized spare tire with jack assembly. By 1957, Ford had upgraded the D-code 312 cubic inch Thunderbird Special to 245 horsepower. Linked to a 3-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission and a set of 3.10 gears out back, it''s an exceptional cruiser with moves more like a muscle car than a luxury car. Up top, there''s a traditional chrome air cleaner that inhales through the fully functional hood scoop, Ford Red paint on the block, and proper Thunderbird Special decals on the valve covers. Unlike a lot of Thunderbirds, this one doesn''t have any questionable "upgrades" that affect the driving experience, and you''ll note that it even stills ports original-style hose clamps and cast iron exhaust manifolds. Underneath, there''s a reproduction dual exhaust system that sounds appropriately muscular, but in a muted sort of way. The chassis is extremely clean although not detailed for show, and while it wears 215/75/14 whitewall radials on wire wheels, just think of how amazing it would look with a set of correct wide whites! Iconic, fun to drive, and a still a solid investment, this ''57 Thunderbird needs looks like it should cost a lot more than it does. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Charlotte showroom.
