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".
