1957 Ford Thunderbird


This 1957 Ford Thunderbird looks amazing in its factory color, Raven Black, code A. It is polished to a high gloss finish. You can read the newspaper in the reflection on this one! The body is straight down both sides. Excellent fit and finish. The chrome and trim sparkle like new. The black porthole hardtop has also been restored. It has a new black convertible soft top. It features the correct (& expensive) Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with the black Thunderbird spinners wrapped with new radial BFG Silvertown wide white wall tires. The door jambs are nice and glossy. It has new weather stripping and sill plates. 

The interior is exceptional and original. The dash pad is in excellent condition. The gauges were sent out and re-done. All the knobs are very nice. The carpet, door panels and seat upholstery have been replaced. Even items like the brake pedal, kick panels, horn ring and steering column are in very good shape. It also features a retro AM/FM radio and factory floor mats. 

The engine compartment is very detailed and original with its totally rebuilt 312 ci V-8 engine, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, original style battery, finned valve covers and original chrome air cleaner. Every component looks correct. The generator was upgraded to an alternator.

The undercarriage is what you would expect a California car to look like. It has all clean metal and the frame is clean. Everything looks proper. The suspension, brake lines, shocks and exhaust are in good shape.

The trunk is neat and orderly. It has a spare tire, jack assembly, trunk mat, cardboard side panels, jacking instructions decal and new weather stripping.

This car is cool and very sexy! You will be the envy at the car shows and cruise-ins!
