The mid-fifties Thunderbird is arguably one of Fords most iconic
vehicles. Exuding timeless elegance and style, the 1957 Thunderbird
is the best of the breed, and is as fresh and elegant today as it
was in 1957.
And nothing could be more timeless than the simple elegance of black and white. A true "black tie" car, this stunning example is dressed in Colonial White and includes both matching removable hardtop as well as a black retractable top covered in quality Haartz fabric. Fender skirts, genuine Kelsey-Hayes chrome wire wheels, and wide whitewall radials complete the look of this beautiful sports car.
Owned by a local doctor for the last half-century, this Thunderbird has led a pampered life. A pristine, original car, it has only seen the lightest cosmetic restoration yet looks, runs and drives like the best of the breed.

This is the sixth vehicle in the 30-day Countdown to Barrett-Jackson’s 47th annual Scottsdale auction.
The “square-bird” four-seater models that replaced Ford’s iconic Thunderbird roadsters are considered the original “personal luxury” cars.
Barrett-Jackson auctioned off in Scottsdale the impeccable silver-gray 1956 Ford Thunderbird that the legendary Frank Sinatra drove around Palm Springs, California, when he was not off with the rest of the Rat Pack.
Strikingly elegant was the thought that popped to mind when this triple black 1966 Ford Thunderbird appeared as I clicked through candidates for Pick of the Day.
The first-generation two-seat Ford Thunderbird is always a favorite among classic and collector car owners, which sometimes leaves the second generation largely overlooked.
