1957 Ford Thunderbird
For 1957 the front bumper was reshaped, the grille and tailfins
were made larger, and larger taillights were fitted. The spare
wheel moved back inside the trunk, which had been redesigned to
allow it to be mounted vertically. The side "Thunderbird" script
moved from the fins to the front fenders. A new option was the
standard 292 and optional 312 engines, higher performance versions
of the 312 were offered, including two with a 4-barrel Holley
carburetor McCulloch 1957 sales were 21,380, including three extra
months of production because the 1958 models were late. The 1957
Thunderbird was the last two-seater Ford sold until the 1982 Ford
EXP sport compact car.
This Thunderbird was never restored just garage kept all its life.
