To keep up with Chevrolet and its success with the Corvette at the New York Auto Show, Ford released its Thunderbird in 1955. While it was a peppy car, the Thunderbird was aimed more at providing luxury and was Ford’s first step into the personal luxury car segment. With values for neat examples always on the rise, it's time you drove off into the sunset with this lovely 1957 Ford Thunderbird we have today. With a reported 78,000 miles on the clock, this is old-school American luxury and history on four wheels.
The 30s was a time of luxury and class, and the first generation Ford thunderbird was built to replicate the essence of bespoke roadsters of that era, albeit in symphony with the 50s trends. The long body lines and luxurious 50s design cues on this 1957 Ford Thunderbird are complimented by a white exterior. This being a 50s car means you can never have enough chrome on the body, and this car sports all its chrome components and is in great shape too. While you might want to cruise without the top off, it's nice to note that the white convertible hard top also matches the white exterior. The all-white exterior also continues to the whitewall tires that house a set of wire wheels that match the chrome components of the car. In terms of matching colors, you can't do better than a red interior matching the white exterior. The interior of this 1957 Ford Thunderbird is nothing short of a time machine from the 50s. Once you get comfy in the leather seats looking around, you will find the car's original interior components in place; the original AM/Fm radio is also present.
With originality being the common theme in this car, popping open the hood, you would find that theme continues. Powering this 1957 Ford Thunderbird is a 312ci V8 powertrain that was the bigger engine option when purchasing your 57 T-Bird brand new. Looking at the engine, you would note that the Thunderbird valve covers are in place and to showcase how original this car is, you can even find Ford’s see clear windshield water reservoir in place. Originality and all aside, the cherry on top of the cake comes from a 3-speed manual transmission that sends power to the car's rear wheels.
