Description for Ford Thunderbird 1957

First introduced in 1955 the two seat Thunderbird was Ford's response to the recently revealed Chevrolet Corvette. Dubbed as a "personal luxury car" it was designed to evoke the emotions of bespoke 1930s roadsters as well as provide modern technology and sophistication. The small size and standard V8 engine meant that the performance was strong but the focus was still more on drive comfort than outright speed. In 1957 the car underwent some small changes including larger fins different badge pl...acement and reworked trim. The '57 Thunderbird was also the last 2-seat Ford sports car until the 11th generation Thunderbird. Just 53k first generation Thunderbirds were made.
