Description for Ford Thunderbird 1957

This is one out 1,363 of the rarest Ford Thunderbird manufactured in 1957 the E-cod, they came with 312 Y-block with dual Holley teapot carburetors. This vehicle began as a full restoration project 3 years ago, there has been a lot of hours and funds invested into this build . This build did not begin as a concord build and was not planned to be one . It has been a journey just getting this bird to this point in which finishing the body it is ready to go on a rotisserie to complete it properly and then assembly in which we have interior door cards and panels also the seat cover and various parts in which i'll attempt to add all in the pics. We do have the soft top roof also and hard top as in pictures. I will be updating the info or answer any questions about this vehicle as possible for those whom have interest.
Thanks for looking
The engine is a fresh full rebuild and has never been started both carbs were just overhauled and all parts anodized . The transmission and torque converter have been rebuilt . Engine and trans were done by highly reputable technicians and if needed you could discuss the overhaul and rebuilds with them. At this time the chassis is separated from the body still if needed i will mate them for transporting. The frame has be replaced with a frame direct from a 1957 T-Bird from Marvin Hills Thunderbird specialist out of Ohio. The original frame had been modified and X was cut in which weakened the strength of it's structure to the point of loss of safety to being road worthy so we replaced if something or a part we had doubt about it was replaced.
Thanks again.
