For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

STK 3161 1957 Ford Thunderbird

The Thunderbird was introduced as a sporty competitor to the Corvette and many say that the T'bird actually saved the 'Vette from extinction. The 1957 Thunderbird model set a sales record with over 21,000 cars sold. It presented a new front fascia, new rear taillight/fin design and features from the previous year including a 12-volt electrical system and deep-dish 'safety' steering wheel. Our Thunderbird roadster has been fully restored. The T'bird looks very distinguished with a professional re-spray of original Gunmetal Gray (N code) and wide-white radial tires mounted on 14" steel wheels w/full factory hubcaps. A pair of rear fender skirts are also included with the car. The manual black convertible soft top is in very good condition with only one minor tear. The interior was reupholstered in Flame Red vinyl and includes the restyled '57 instrument cluster with round gauges. Power is said to be provided by rebuilt Thunderbird 312ci w/4 barrel carburetor rated at 245hp. One of the original options on the car was the 'Engine Dress-up Kit' with over-sized air cleaner assembly and chrome accents. The Y-block is backed by Ford's time-honored 2-speed Ford-O-Matic transmission and the chassis is equipped with power steering and power drum brakes. There are few of these classic Thunderbirds around for the serious Blue Oval loyalist and this car deserves your scrutiny. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS".
