CODE DATA PLATE: (40) - THUNDERRBIRD (EE) - COLONIAL WHITE (XA) - PLEATED RAVEN AND WHITE VINYL COMMENTS Thanks to Franklin Q. Hershey & William P. Boyer, Ford had a car that combined the flair of a sports car wvth the comfort of a boulevard cruiser, the Thunderbird. However a slight sales decline in 1956 sent Ford Designers back to their drawing boards. The labor resulted in the consummate two-seat Thunderbird. Buyers noticed the restyled grill, stretched rear sheet metal, fresh bumper designs and improved seating the 1957 version offered. Other less visible improvements included larger openings for improved cooling, revised spring rates, larger brakes, stiffer chassis crossmembers, a 12-volt electrical system and new 14-inch wheels. These evolutionary steps enabled a more stable and capable handling Thunderbird, wvth its spare tire back in the trunk. 1957 also offered three engine selections, all V8s: the standard 312 cubic inch, wvth 225 horsepower; an E model wvth dual four barrel carburetors boasting 270 horsepower; and the rare F supercharged model pumping out 300 horsepower. Marketed as a spacious, luxurious boulevardier, the Thunderbird was introduced in 1955 in response to the Chevrolet Corvette, which had been launched two years earlier. A luxurious car in the day wvth optional power windows and removable hard top, the 1955 T-bird found 16,155 buyers compared to a mere 674 for the Corvette, which was almost discontinued due to poor sales. Available only through the 1957 model year, the two-seat Thunderbird was transformed into a four-seater for 1958 to improve marketability. Temporarily discontinued after 1998, the Thunderbird was reintroduced for 2001 as a two-place personal car that embodied the spirit of the well-remembered original version. This heavily documented , heavily equipped 1957 Thunderbird is a collectors dream. Complete with a hard and a soft top, and equipped with power steering and power brakes this Thunderbird is (unlike many collectible cars) truly a pleasure to drive. Included is the original owners manual, original keys, original warrantee papers and of course the original factory invoice (see photos) If you have been looking for a very original, heavily documented, nicely equipped, 57 TBIRD to drive , show or both, take a good look at this Thunderbird. It is sure to appreciate in value while you are enjoying it. FOR MORE INFO, PLEASE CAL LENNY 203-668-7797 WILL CONSIDER INTERESTING TRADES
