For Sale: 1957 Ford Thunderbird in Kentwood, Michigan

Vehicle Description

First introduced in 1955, the two-seat Thunderbird was Ford's response to the recently revealed Chevrolet Corvette. Dubbed as a "personal luxury car" it was designed to evoke the emotions of bespoke 1930s roadsters as well as provide modern technology and sophistication. The small size and standard V8 engine meant that the performance was strong but the focus was still more on drive comfort than outright speed. In 1957, the car underwent some small changes including larger fins, different badge placement, and reworked trim. The '57 Thunderbird was also the last 2-seat Ford sports car until the 11th generation Thunderbird. Just 53k first-generation Thunderbirds were made.

GR Auto Gallery of Indy is pleased to present this gorgeous Thunderbird for your consideration. The bright red paint is fresh and shines well along with the quality chrome trim. The glass and other trim pieces are also in great shape and the car comes with a factory removable hard top. The car is well equipped and features, 14-inch wire wheels with Michelin XZ4 whitewall tires, fenders skirts, AM radio, and more. The interior is in excellent shape with a crack-free dash and engine-turned trim that looks great. The seats are stain and rip-free and have great padding.

The car runs and drives well with new brakes on all four corners, good steering, and a strong overhauled engine. The ID build plate in the engine bay says that the engine is a "D" code which says the engine is the more powerful 312cid V8. The engine starts well and sounds strong. With just 21,380 1957 Thunderbirds produced, these excellent cars are becoming more scarce every year. Now is your chance to pick up a legend.
