For sale in our Chicago showroom is this stunning 1957 Ford Thunderbird painted in the very memorable, Dusk Rose. Under the hood sits a smooth purring 312 cubic inch V8 which pushes the power it produces through an automatic transmission. The powerplant has been dressed up to give it a look that truly makes it shine like a diamond. There is just over 10k miles on the clock, which represents this birds' footprint since it endured a total frame-off restoration that was completed in 2007, the year of its 50th birthday. During this endeavor, in addition to the entire body, all the mechanics were restored making it a nearly new car once again. It was also fitted with an aluminum radiator and electric fuel pump to keep it going smoother and longer than any other car of this era. The white vinyl interior gives the simple impression of a cloud. Clean, pure, comfortable. It is a great design and feel for the classic cruiser that this car has been known for throughout the past decades. Once inside, you can make sure your comfort is maximized by utilizing the smooth, optional power seats. This timeless Ford is equipped with a modern multi-disk AM/FM stereo that can play any of your favorites like "Long Tall Sally", "Tutti Frutti", or "Jailhouse Rock". This beautifully restored and maintained coupe is ready to hit the open road, turn heads, or surely be a top competitor in any local car show! Options include: Air Conditioning, AM/FM/ Radio, Cassette, CD, Manual Convertible Top, Power Breaks, Power Seats, Power Windows, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, Tilt/Telescopic Wheel, and Vinyl Interior.
