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. Paperwork is on hand for the above mentioned.
We are pleased to offer this 1957 Ford Thunderbird for your consideration. The Car offered here is a tidy example featuring a ground-up style restoration performed in 2014. Part of the restoration was a complete re-build of the engine. All new internals were replaced and include new rod bearings, main seal, new lifters, oil pump, all gaskets, timing set, exhaust seats, 4 intake seats, a complete valve job, deck and bore the block, R & R the pistons, new rocker studs, deck the heads, machine and turn the crank and finally the proper break-in oil to round out this proper re-build. In addition to the motor re-build, a complete overhaul of the Ford-O-Matic transmission was performed, new flywheel and an aluminum radiator install to keep this bird running cool.
The car is powered by the optional 312 V8 engine, automatic transmission and rear wheel drive. Highlights include: Power steering, power brakes, Upgraded Air Conditioning, Original Kelsey Hayes Wire Wheels, AM Factory Radio, Correct Air Cleaner, Correct Aluminum Valve Covers, Correct Washer Bag, Correct Style Battery, upgraded aluminum radiator, etc. The car is finished in its original color combination, Raven Black over Black and White interior. Mechanically, This T-bird is spot on, a proven driver that operates with ease, and can be driven with confidence. With Just 21380 T-Birds built in 1957, these excellent cars are becoming more scarce every year. Now is your time to own a Legend.
