This bird is a "Matching Numbers", documented CALIFORNIA/ARIZONA car that I shipped back home. Only 4% of all 1957 t-birds were originally painted Starmist Blue so this is truly an investment bird and one of the most beautiful and iconic cars ever built. In the 50's pastel colors were all the rage! Blue, turquoise, green, coral, yellow and pink and these retro colors are making a big comeback today. By the way, a large number of these early T-birds were later re-painted a different color than the original or given a different interior color than the factory original and this reduces the cars value.
The body and frame are straight and true and the engine bay and interior is correct, with all gauges clear and operating as intended as the car underwent a restoration approximately 4,000 miles ago. I can't begin to tell you how many thumbs up and compliments I receive about the color, condition and styling of the car at car shows and cruises, and how many people ask if they can take a picture with the car!
My bird starts right up, runs like a top, purrs like a kitten, cool as a cucumber and is ready to go anywhere without excuses! It's a "D" code Bird with a 312 CI, 4-V engine and power steering, power brakes, a porthole hard top and a new royal blue convertible top, "engine dress up kit", telescoping steering wheel, wheel skirts, heater/defroster and new Coker whitewall tires. In my opinion, this classic is in Hagerty #3 or "Very Good" condition. Please contact me to answer any questions and come take a look!
