It's time for the true white glove treatment in this all-white 1957 Ford Thunderbird. The white paint, interior, and hardtop makes this a triple threat when it comes to awards or cruising around town. And with plenty of luxury features, this is the car to go out and be seen in!
We all love a factory-correct Colonial White porthole T-bird. Even those who don't immediately think of Suzanne Somers in "American Graffiti" still see the beauty in this icon. The careful respray of the original color combined with nicely preserved bodywork means both sunlight and neon rolls off the finish with premium uniformity. So you'll be proud to take this everywhere from the car show to the cruise-in. You have all the right features you want on this car, including the fender skirts and the dual exhaust that still exits through the rear bumper. And speaking of that intricate bumper, there was clearly an investment in the chrome work, which also includes the front grille, pointed & curved front bumper, and those jet-like taillights. Finishing off this total package are a great set of 14-inch wire wheels and whitewall tires, which of course, belong on a pristine white classic like this one.
No matter if you utilize the iconic porthole hardtop or have the cream-colored folding soft top in place, there is a pristine white interior waiting for you underneath. You'll really love showing off how the seats, door panels, and dash seamlessly match the exterior color. Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, and that's why it came with rare features for its time, like the power seats and power windows. When you slip behind the white and chrome steering wheel, it truly feels like a special machine. While this is Ford's personal luxury car, the Thunderbird was getting serious about competing with the Corvette with its full gauge package, including the large speedometer prominently in the center. 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.
The larger D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '57. It has been cared for just like the rest of this immaculate T-Bird with tidy hoses, big red block, and shiny components. Of course what really gets this motor noticed is the factory dress-up kit with finned valve covers and the pie dish chrome air cleaner. It inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority through a newer stainless steel dual exhaust system. While you can get some serious power out of the V8, this easily settles into the nice and comfortable ride provided by Ford's personal luxury convertible. It's especially true thanks to great cruising features like the automatic transmission, power brakes, and highway-friendly rear gears.
A pristine and factory-correct white T-bird that's ready to impress and even comes with maintenance/restoration receipts. We haven't even bothered to mention how well this one is priced in the market, so you know it's going to be a white-hot commodity. Call today!!!
