Classic 1957 Ford Thunderbird
The 1957 Ford Thunderbird that we have here at Adventure Classics
was a rear wheel drive automobile manufactured by Ford in the
United States over eleven model generations from 1955 through 2005.
The Thunderbird created a market niche that eventually became known
as the personal luxury car.
The Thunderbird was revised for 1957 with a reshaped front bumper,
a larger grille and tail fins, and larger tail lamps. The
instrument panel was heavily re-styled with round gauges in a
single pod, and the rear of the car was lengthened, allowing the
spare tire to be positioned back in the trunk.
Ours has what looks like an all original engine compartment with
all the factory correct hose, clamps, windshield washer bag,
accessories as well as the factory correct 312 cu in V8 with
4-barrel carb which had become the Thunderbird's standard engine,
and now produced 245 horsepower in 1957.
It has the dress up kit with the correct finned valve covers,
factory cast iron exhaust manifolds, power steering and power
brakes, and the Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission that shifts
perfect. The engine also sits in a very clean and detailed engine
The exhaust system is good and the chassis is largely original, not
detailed for show but great as a driver, and wears a set of chrome
wire spoke wheels with wide whitewall tires that really make it
look period correct!
You will like the Pleated Raven Colonial Vinyl interior with door
panels that match the dash. The gauges are in original factory
condition and look great in the machine turned dash. The 57 still
has the original Town & Country radio and correct black carpets and
it all looks great as well as very original.
The 1957 Ford Thunderbird we have at Adventure Classics is in
gorgeous original color of Colonial White that looks great. The
bodywork, fit and finish are nicely done, it has a great
convertible top while the Thunderbird's famous "porthole" hardtop
comes in white on top of the car.
The graceful fins and body lines has straight panels and the
taillight end caps round out the rear end of the car. Other details
like the Thunderbird badges, rear bumper with integrated exhaust
outlets, and the stainless trim on the fender skirts are all great
The 1957 Ford Thunderbird we have at Adventure Classics is fun to
drive anywhere and enjoy the iconic look as well as the looks you
will get just on that "Porthole" top.
