1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible (3-tops)
312ci engine 245hp with Ford-O-Matic Transmission
Fiore Motors is proud to offer this Showroom Condition and very original '57 TBird! This TBird was purchased by the Hanlin & Hernley Corporation on April 18th, 1957 in Los Angeles California where it spent it entire life up until a few years ago. The Southern California climate of L.A. has helped preserved this classic TBird throughout the decades.
The interior is as good as new throughout. We believe every bit of it to be original but we are unsure. We are sure however, that the mileage is original at just over 31000. This TBird is virtually as clean as a new car. The factory white and black interior is immaculate and barely shows any signs of usage. The original door panels show the actual Thunderbird Logo which we have never seen. After some research, we could not find them for sale anywhere. The dash is crystal clear and all gauges & features work perfectly including the clock. Features include the Porthole hardtop in Colonial White, a black convertible top and Tourneau top. Power windows, power brakes, Positive Action wipers, Signal Seek radio, Heater & Defroster and a rarely seen feature called Dial-a-matic power seats where your seat position is selected by a dial.
The factory E-code Colonial White paint is the original color and its repaint is flawless. All body panels are original and have never seen a spec of rust. The undercarriage is spotless. All chrome shines like new and there is no pitting anywhere.
An original "Gate Release & Accounting Sheet" from Ford Motor Company is still with the car (as shown).
Mechanically, this TBird is amazing. It starts, runs and drives perfectly with No Vapor Lock! The engine is beautifully original and nicely detailed. The Kelsey Hayes wheels add to this cars appeal. This is one beautiful Thunderbird in every respect. Please call or email with your questions..
