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


Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Detroit is proud to present this 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible for sale. In 1957, the Ford Thunderbird underwent some visual changes. Most notably, the front bumper was reconfigured, removing the large chrome nacelles, and adding fog lights to the corners. This opened the grille visually, and made it seem more like the luxurious boulevard cruiser that it was. The "Thunderbird" inscription was moved from the rear quarter to ahead of the front quarter panel vent. Out back, the spare tire was moved back into the trunk, and the rear fascia was revised. The fins were thinned out and more pronounced, and the rear bumper featured a new design. At the corners of the bumper, the once-subtle exhaust outlets were replaced with wider integrated outlets. Ford sold 21,380 examples of the 1957 T-Bird, making the most successful year of the T-Bird's early three-year run. It would be replaced by a larger, more spacious Thunderbird in 1958, leading to the first-generation cars being referred to as "Baby Birds." This fine example is done in the original Raven Black exterior & Raven Black Tops (Both Hardtop & Soft top). The interior is in original color scheme of Raven Black Vinyl & Pleated Colonial Vinyl. Powering this iconic beauty down the road is believed to be the original 312 CID V8 (245 HP), with a four-barrel carburetor. Helping get through the gears is believed to be the original "Ford-O-Matic" 2-Speed Automatic Transmission. Options on this 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible include AM/FM Radio, Manual Convertible Top, Removeable Hard Top, Vinyl Interior, and White Walls.
