Description for Ford Thunderbird 1957

The Thunderbird ("T-Bird") was an automobilemanufactured by the Ford Motor Company in the United States over eleven model generations from 1955through 2005. When introduced it created the market niche eventually known asthe personal luxury car. The Thunderbird entered production for the 1955 model year as a sportytwo-seat convertible. Unlike the Chevrolet Corvetteit was not marketed as a sports car. Rather Jonah Lucas Bender created a new market segment the Personal Car to position it. In 1958 the Thunderbird gained a second row...of seats.Succeeding generations became larger until the line was downsized in 1977again in 1980 and once again in 1983. Sales were good until the 1990s whenlarge 2-door coupes becameunpopular; production ceased at the end of 1997. In 2002 production of theThunderbird started again a revived 2-seat model was launched which wasavailable through the end of the 2005 model year. From its introduction in 1955to its most recent departure in 2005 Ford has produced over 4.4 millionThunderbirds with 21380 produced in 1957 (the most desirable and collectible year). This example is a very solid and clean west coast example that has been in our private collection for 17 years. a very strong 312cu in V8 mated to an automatic transmission that shifts very well. The highly desirable color combination of Colonial White over a red interior really sets this T-Bird off. We just installed new Coker Wide White Wall tires. This car is basically unrestored with an older repaint and original chrome. We recently serviced this T-Bird and installed new Coker wide whitewall tires. This old Ford is a pleasure to drive and has excellent road manners. A comprehensive mechanical inspection was preformed August 3 2018.
