For Sale: 1957 Ford Country Sedan in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gorgeous car! Factory Thunderbird Special with the 312 motor. I bought this car in Florida and drove it with my family for 3 days. It performed great. It turned so many heads and got so many compliments. Built in long Beach CA and I believe it lived out west most of it's life.

EXTERIOR: Being all red is really sharp. Of course the wire wheels and whitewalls really pop, the stance is great too. The body is in excellent condition. I'm did not find a bubble, damage or rust anywhere. Smooth all along the bottoms. The panels all fit square and flush. The red paint has a smooth and glossy finish. The trim down the sides are straight and shiny with the gold anodized inserts. It has dual mirrors, correct antenna, new hood ornament. The bumpers are rechromed. The door jambs are painted real nice, weather strips and sill plates are replaced. The tailgate works nicely and the jamb is painted nicely. BF Goodrich radial whitewall tires are mounted on wire wheels with spinners and red crown valve stem caps.

INTERIOR: Reupholstered seats and door panels in 2 tone red & white. New welting around the doors. The window cranks, handles and armrests look like they're replaced. The carpet was replaced from the firewall to the tailgate. The white perforated headliner and visors were replaced. All the inside metal has been painted smooth and glossy. There is a new owner's manual and glove box liner. The speedometer lense, chrome trim, knobs are exceptionally nice. It has a custom stereo down below the dash and seat belts in the front. It includes a brand new picnic basket complete with dishes and utensils still wrapped in plastic. It also has a brand new car cover still in the plastic bag.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: It has the Thunderbird Special 312-245 hp motor. Upgraded with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and dressed up with finned aluminum valve covers. It has a factory power steering system. The master cylinder was upgraded to a dual reservoir. The battery is bolted down properly, it has a disconnect switch. Over all the enginee compartment is clean and proper looking.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Under the rear floor is a solid metal compartment painted red. It has a jack and spare.

UNDERSIDE: The body was removed from the frame at one point. The floors are all rock solid. The chassis was restored. The front and rear suspension was rebuilt. Upgraded with disc brakes at all four wheels. The fuel system has been replaced. It also has a recent dual exhaust system with glasspack type mufflers. The the bottom of the motor is clean. It has the Cruise-O-Matic transmission.

I love just looking at this car, it's beautiful. Driving it is fun too, you will see how many other people enjoy looking at it too!
