For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in Sebastopol, California

Vehicle Description

This is a Thunderbird Bronze on Bronze car with both tops. 63,606 miles, runs very well. Some minor paint chips. Not a show car, but a really nice driver. Gets lots of compliments. The soft top is an original version with the original swing bar. The canvas is not waterproof anymore, but it provides sunshade if the day gets hot and you want out of the sun. Then the air conditioner is really nice. Automatic, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Power Windows, Power Seat. Town & Country radio has been converted to AM/FM stereo, but is not working.

Restored in late 90’s in Cave Junction, OR. We bought it after taking our son to University of Oregon in Eugene in 1997, and have owned it since. Always garaged and covered by us. We don’t know who restored it, but it is very nice.

We are moving to Portland to be near our children’s families, and don’t have garage space to store it, so we have decided to sell it.
