Magnificent example of the most recognized and revered American made classic automobile in one of the most rare and desirable color combinations. Feast your eyes on this restored 1957 Ford Thunderbird. It is mechanically and cosmetically impressive with brilliant chrome and extreme attention to detail maintaining its originality.
The 1957 model was the last of the 2 seater Tbird which took the best from the two prior designs. Gone was the continental rear end which shortened the length 4" and the spare moved back to the trunk. The handling was also improved. Also back was the thru the rear bumper exhaust ports- a casualty of the continental rear end of the 56. Engine options also grew still having the 292 and 312 (now rated 245hp) plus 2 new offerings - a 270hp V8 dual 4V option and a limited production 300hp supercharged engine.
This particular Tbird has its original D code 312ci 245HP 4V engine with Fordomatic automatic transmission. The low mileage shown is original. Power options of this Tbird are power steering, power brakes, plus inside the cockpit power seat and power windows. This is pretty close to how it rolled off the showroom floor including bias plys as it would have been.
This car is wearing its original X code dusk rose color Henry Ford referred to as pastel pink. Many people change these cars to this very desirable color, but rolling out of the showroom that way is more valuable. Firewall tag calls for K code white porthole hard top. A white soft top is on board as well. Both tops in good condition.
