For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of Atlanta is proud to this 1957 Ford Thunderbird. The first generation of the Ford Thunderbird is a two-seat convertible produced by Ford for the 1955 to 1957 model year, the first 2-seat Ford since 1938. It was developed in response to the 1953 Motorama display at the New York Auto Show, which showed the Chevrolet Corvette. The Corvette in turn was developed in response to the popularity of European sports cars among Americans. For the 1957 model year, the front bumper was reshaped, the grille and tailfins were made larger, and larger taillights were fitted. The spare wheel moved back inside the trunk, which had been redesigned to allow it to be mounted vertically. The side "Thunderbird" script was moved from the fins to the front fenders. 1957 sales were 21,380, including three extra months of production because the 1958 models were late. The 1957 Thunderbird was the last two-seater Ford sold until the 1982 Ford EXP sport compact car. Powering this Thunderbird is a 312 Cubic Inch V8 backed by a 3 speed Ford-O-Matic Automatic Transmission with 3.10 gears in the rear end. Options on this 1957 Ford Thunderbird include: AM/FM Radio, Manual Convertible Top, Port Hole Hardtop, Spare Tire, Jack, Power Steering, Seat Belts, Flame Red Vinyl Interior, White Wall Tires, and Wire Wheels. This 1957 Ford Thunderbird is being offered by our Atlanta Showroom and can be seen in greater detail including 100+ HD pictures and an HD video at www.GatewayClassicCars.com.
