HIGH QUALITY RESTORATION, ORIGINAL WHEELS & SKIRTS INCLUDED, BUILDSHEET, NICE!

First generation T-Birds are all about style, and this 1957 Ford Thunderbird does it best with a meticulous restoration to the interior, exterior, and the big 312 V8. Plus, you get to choose the way you want to cruise – either the muscular car seen in these picture with the bright 17-inch alloys, or as a true classic with the original wheels and fender skirts – all in this sale. This is another car that is coming from a Ford only collection, so it's been extremely well cared for.

One of the world's most beloved cars, there's just no way to make a '57 Thunderbird look bad. But when you get it right, they can be downright amazing, and the high-quality finish on this two-seater is a testament to a life well lived. The professional repaint of the factory-correct code-E Colonial White looks stunning. It's set off with uniform gaps all around (particularly the hard-to-fit doors.) Nice chrome accentuates this '50s icon, and the exhaust still exits neatly through the rear bumper. The brand new 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels have that iconic appearance that you'd see if you were to hot road this T-Bird back in the 50s. If that's not to your liking, remember the restored factory wheel package with whitewalls and rear fender skirts also come with the sale.

Beneath the white folding roof is a terrific black and white two-tone interior. During the restoration, anything that wasn't up to standard was replaced with the correct component. Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, and that's why it came with rare features for its time such as the memory power seats and power windows. Not only do those function perfectly, but so do other original components like the heat/defrost, AM radio, and courtesy light. It's all displayed in an engine-turned panel that flows across both doors and the dash. This frames many of the intricate styling touches such as logo embossed side panels and the power steering wheel. Beyond that you could see the Thunderbird was getting serious about competing with the Corvette with its full gauge package, including the large speedometer prominently in the center.

The larger D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '57, and it has been cared for just like the rest of this immaculate T-Bird. Tidy hoses, big red block, and shiny components make it show-worthy. Of course what really gets this motor noticed is the factory dress-up kit with finned valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. Make sure you look at the undercarriage photos to see that this high level of presentation is throughout the whole car. But as much as this is a show-stopping T-Bird, it was also meant for cruising with great features like the power steering, automatic transmission, power brakes, and highway-friendly rear gears.

This car shows off its cherished quality right down to the included factory buildsheet. It's the award-worthy Thunderbird that you can pick up from us on a Saturday and win your first trophy on Sunday. So hurry before someone else snaps up your perfect T-Bird. Call today!!!
