This 1957 Ford Thunderbird has a particularly cool color combo,
proper V8 power, and desirable features - including both hard and
soft tops. And with a nice list of recent investments, it makes for
an icon that stands out in all the best ways.
White looks great on a Thunderbird. After all, it's a timelessly
attractive color, and the first-generation T-bird is a rolling icon
with timeless appeal. This is an upgrade later in life and that
means nice details like a hint of pearlescent glow when the
sunshine hits this bright white classic. These cars are means to be
enjoyed, and it's easy to call this a cruiser-ready finish. What
that means is it has a nice gloss that will radiate to show off the
straight body, but the overall impression that will never make you
nervous to take it out for some fun. The white looks great
coordinating with the whitewall tires and white time wheel covers.
You even get the choice of how to button up this car fully with
either the white convertible top or white hard top for a very
elegant total style. And of course, there's the brightwork. It
looks terrific from the hood scoop to the trim on the taillights.
And the shining chrome bumpers are essential with the front one
making up half of the car's face, and the rear nicely integrating
the dual exhaust. There's also excellent detail work, right down to
the trim on the fender skirts.
While either color-matched roof gives this a good look, a first-gen
Thunderbird is really meant to be enjoyed with no roof at all. And
in this case, it's going to be hard to resist sharing the bold red
interior with the world. After all, this color combo is as
classically attractive as Marilyn Monroe wearing her white dress
and red lipstick. This is an upgrade later in life, and so just
like the exterior, it looks striking without becoming a museum
piece. And everything is kept highly vintage, right down to the AM
radio that's there for display. There's a healthy dose of
brightwork on the door panels, dash, and steering wheel and it's
all complete and shining like a good classic should. The thin and
grippy wheel feels great in your hands, and it gives you a
commanding view of the full gauge panel.
The larger D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '57, and
so it's ideal to still have the correct displacement under the hood
today. The motor has nice flair with the shine of the polished
Edelbrock air cleaner and special Thunderbird valve covers. Plus,
there's a newer Edelbrock AVS2 four-barrel carburetor sitting on
top of this V8. In fact, the consignor states the carburetor was
part of a recent tune-up that also included a new battery, the
radiator overhauled, electric fans installed, and dual exhaust
updates. So it's a solid package that warms up to be a strong
runner. This is the kind of classic that wants you to feel the
road, but it also is never rough in a Thunderbird. That's why you
have easy cruising features like automatic transmission and power
