For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in Mesa, Arizona

Vehicle Description

You're looking at a powerful 1957 Ford Thunderbird in a rare, distinct, and correct color. So take some time to look over all the details, but you know better than to pause too long on this icon or it will be gone.


The factory-correct code-X Dusk Rose is quite distinctive. It was only available in '57, and it has the kind of sophisticated glow that adds distinction through elegance. So, it's exactly the kind of beautiful pastel everyone secretly wishes was on their first-gen T-bird. And all your favorite hallmark elements are still in place on this example. The form-fitting chrome front bumper, hood scoop, rear fender skirts, jet-inspired taillights, sporty rear bumper with integrated exhaust ports, and so much more that all instantly inspire nostalgia. Plus, you'll love the coordination on the whole car. It's in the details like the way the slats in the front fenders match the turbine-style wheel covers. You have the iconic porthole hardtop, and when it's in place, the white goes with the whitewall tire and inner ring of the wheel cover for a very subtle two-tone presentation.


There's even more of the subtle white style inside. It helps to highlight some of the best details, like the door panels with Thunderbird logos embedded and the tuck and roll style inserts of the seats. But high traffic areas like the armrests, carpeting, and steering wheel are done in black. The result is a useful classic with an interior that's as appealing as formalwear. This is a true cruiser-ready car. You have nice factory details, like a telescopic steering column, wind wings, and a tach. There are even well-integrated upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette.


The larger D-code "Thunderbird Special" 312 cubic-inch V8 was a worthwhile option in '57, and so it's nice to still have the correct displacement under the hood today. The correct Ford red paint on the block, chrome air cleaner, and special Thunderbird valve covers all look great in the engine bay. There's even a Holley four-barrel carburetor that lets this V8 inhale deeply. It fires up readily like a classic that wants to hit the road. And features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, modern cruising tires, and a supple ride all keep this T-bird a true boulevard classic.


This is the iconic Thunderbird with all the right classic style you love - right down to the factory color. So if you want a distinct and powerful icon, call today!
