For those seeking a lovely driver from the Tri-Five Ford Series of Thunderbird's you may have struck gold. This sleek and great looking 1957 Ford Thunderbird is gleaming in an above average driver quality Starmist Blue paint with an accenting white interior. It is powered by a great running and peppy 312/245HP engine twisting into a smooth shifting 3-Speed Ford-O-Matic transmission. Options include an after market air conditioning, (Thunderbird had no A/C options in the day), power windows and the rare factory option Dial-O-Matic power seats and rides along on new tires. It does NOT have its original radio. As the pictures will attest the car has a great look and stance with all bright work holding a nice shine, paint that suits it well and an immaculate interior. All gauges and accessories operating as designed. There are a few small blemishes in the paint but only where seams meet but are not a result of rust. Beneath the car is well maintained with no visible indications of rust or a hit. The current owner has had it for approximately three years and is wishing to sell only out of a need for space. It comes with hard top and tonneau cover only. No documentation comes with the car therefore it cannot be claimed to have a numbers matching power-train. The car is located in Villa Rica, GA some 25 miles west of Atlanta just off I-20. The owner seeks the fair price of $41.5K but will consider other reasonable close offers. No trades are sought or considered. Purchase price includes shipping in Lower 48 states. ******************DISCLAIMER: PLEASE READ CAREFULLY************************************** All vehicles presented on SelectClassicCars.com are done so as a marketing venue for private owners and select classic car dealers from around the United States.

The Ford Thunderbird has gone through many iterations during its design and market focus.
