For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Available in our Gateway Classic Cars Dallas-Fort Worth showroom is this beautiful 1957 Ford Thunderbird finished in Coral Sand with Cream interior with the 312 CID V8; one of the rarest Thunderbirds ever made. Performance was becoming an increasingly important feature to car buyers as the '50s progressed, and in 1957 Ford increased engine choices in the Thunderbird to no fewer than six, including four levels of power in the new 312 CI version of its Y-block V-8 engine in addition to the 292 CI units offered in 1955 and 1956 Thunderbirds. This example incorporates the 245 HP version of the new 312 CI engine featuring dual exhaust. One of very few Thunderbirds ordered with rare Coral Sand paint, optional port hole hard top, and a contrasting white interior. It was well-optioned with the Borg Warner-designed Ford-O-Matic 3-speed automatic transmission, Master Guide power steering, and Swift Sure power brakes. When it came to exterior cosmetics, the buyer of this early production example chose an optional porthole hard top, chromed wire wheels, wide whitewall tires and fender skirts. The interior is just as nice as the exterior. This one has the port hole top, 312 CID V8/245 HP, Ford-O-Matic automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and a town and country radio. This gorgeous coral sand Thunderbird has had an extensive restoration by the previous owner. Beautiful well-preserved body covered in show quality coral sand paint and a matching port hole top. The chrome and stainless is very nice. The cream interior is exceptional dash with clear crisp gauges. This nostalgic icon car is rolling on a set of wide whites with correct caps and has major curb appeal. Ready to add to any collection as a center piece, this car is a piece of automotive history.
