Throughout the decades, Ford has produced some of the most innovative and noteworthy vehicles. One of these is the Ford Thunderbird, more commonly known by fans as the T-Bird. The T-Bird was a personal luxury car produced from 1954 to 1997, then revived in 2002 and produced until 2005. All these decades entailed the T-Bird to 11 generations of T-Bird models, but none is as sought after as the first generation, which was produced from 1955 to 1957. A rare chance to own one of these magnificent cars is at hand in the form of this 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible with many rebuilt mechanics and new parts and comes just 14,000 original miles.
This 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible is finished in a grand Colonial White paint. While the soft top is unavailable, a body-colored hardtop and a tonneau cover are included in the sale. The front fascia has a gentle slope from the hood to the low-situated chrome egg-crate grille embedded with the front chrome bumper, while the T-Bird logo is prominently visible on the right above the grille. The hood has a hood scoop with a chrome grille. The front side fenders feature the Thunderbird lettering and ornamentation in chrome. New wind wings are installed. Large tailfins with large taillights are visible at the rear with a chrome-painted rear bumper. It sits on a set of Ford 14" OEM wheels painted in chrome with white-walled tires. A two-tone black and white interior theme grace this T-Bird. The 3-spoke vintage chrome and white steering wheel is well polished. The seller reports that the original radio was converted to an AM/FM unit with new speakers under the dash and two speakers behind the seats. It is noted that the speakers were installed with no cutting or drilling involved. The trunk has the original carpeting.

The 1957 Ford Thunderbird was offered in a variety of engine and transmission combinations.
