Description for Ford Thunderbird 1957

1957 Ford Thunderbird

The T-Bird began life in February 1953 in direct response to Chevrolet's Corvette which was publicly unveiled in prototype form just a month before. Under rapid development, the T-Bird went from idea to prototype in about a year with the car beginning sales as a 1955 model which created the market niche eventually known as the personal luxury car. It was named after a mythological creature that was worshiped by indigenous people of North America. The T-Bird was relatively unchanged for the 1956 model year but was revised for 1957 with a reshaped front bumper, a larger grille, larger tail fins and larger tail lamps. Also in 1957 the 312 cu in (5.1 L) V8 became the T-Bird's standard engine with an increase to 245 horsepower. This particular T-Bird is a 4 owner car that has always been stored in a climate controlled garage and has 46,276 original miles. It was originally Colonial White but was repainted about 3 years ago in Flame Red. The hard top was repainted in its original color and looks very classy when attached. The rims were also repainted Flame Red and are wrapped with new white wall radial tires. At the same time the bumpers were rechromed and show like new. The original numbers matching engine and automatic transmission have never been rebuilt and still run incredibly well. The interior is completely original with the exception of the driver seat which was recovered in its original color, the Custom Auto Sound AM/FM Cassette player, the Sun Pro gauges, the ashtray mounted cup holder and the cover on the steering wheel. It shows incredibly well for its age with the exception of some chrome items that could use replating. Absolutely everything is working on this timeless classic except for the clock. All said and done we would classify this is a #2 car and would appraise it at $83,570. We have priced it as a #4 car to insure a quick sale so if you like what you see you better Buy It Now before it’s too late!
