GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1957 Ford Thunderbird
for purchase. The Ford Thunderbird project was in direct response
to that of the Chevrolet Corvette, but not very similar. In fact,
the number of T-Birds sold the first 3 years of production was much
greater than the Corvette. This might have been the result of a
better marketing campaign by Ford. They were the first to market
the term "personal luxury car" vs "sports car". The original 2
seater personal luxury car reached its pinnacle in the final year
of production, 1957. The car received some subtle styling changes
up front along with pronounced tail fins on the rear of the car.
Fords Thunderbird for 1957 still remains one of the most
recognizable cars on the planet.
This example is finished in Colonial White over a white interior
with black carpet. The car was given a frame off restoration in
1990 when the current owner's father had purchased it. The body is
straight and solid and the chrome shines well. It is powered to by
a 312 v8 that is paired to an automatic transmission. The soft top
is in great condition, as is the hard top. The t-bird has power
steering, whitewall tires, and a continental kit that adds to the
look of this classic. This is an excellent running and handling
example is ready for its next owner.
