Another beautiful 1957 Ford Thunderbird For sale in our Fort
Lauderdale showroom is a classic 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible.
The Ford Thunderbird began life in February 1953 in direct response
to Chevrolet's new sports car, the Corvette, which was publicly
unveiled in prototype form just a month before. Under rapid
development, the Thunderbird went from idea to prototype in about a
year, being unveiled to the public at the Detroit Auto Show on
February 20, 1954. Like the Corvette, the Thunderbird had a
two-seat coupe/convertible layout. Production of the Thunderbird
began later in 1954 on September 9 with the car beginning sales as
a 1955 model on October 22, 1954. Though sharing some design
characteristics with other Fords of the time, such as single,
circular headlamps and tail lamps and modest tailfins, the
Thunderbird was sleeker and more athletic in shape, and had
features like a faux hood scoop and a 140 mph speedometer hinting a
higher performance nature that other Fords didn't possess. The
exterior was professionally painted in a RED while the interior is
RED and White vinyl. The two complement each other very nicely.
Under the hood you'll find a potent 312 CID V8 engine backed by a
3-spd automatic transmission, but you'll also find a rare A/C
option. The valve covers are the original Thunderbird ribbed covers
that scream 50s style. It's probably the first thing you'll notice
when you open the hood. Under the chrome air cleaner sits on a 4BBL
carburetor that the purist's will surly love. The infamous porthole
hard top is in amazing condition and painted red on this T-Bird.
With the hardtop secured into place the road noise diminishes
significantly. Other options include: AM radio, manual convertible
top, power seats vinyl interior, and wide white wall radial tires.
This is a classic Thunderbird with a timeless look which bodes well
for an investment piece and a fun driver alike. To view the car in
