GR Auto Gallery is pleased to present this 1957 Ford Thunderbird for purchase. The Ford Thunderbird project was in direct response to that of the Chevrolet Corvette, but not very similar. In fact, the number of T-Birds sold the first 3 years of production was much greater than the Corvette. This might have been the result of a better marketing campaign by Ford. They were the first to market the term “personal luxury car” vs “sports car”. The original 2 seater personal luxury car reached its pinnacle in the final year of production, 1957. The car received some subtle styling changes up front along with pronounced tail fins on the rear of the car. Fords Thunderbird for 1957 still remains one of the most recognizable car on the planet.

This 1957 Ford Thunderbird is absolutely stunning! The Flame Red exterior paint is in excellent condition and pairs together extremely well with the White Colonial interior that is also in wonderful condition. The owner of this Bird had purchased it from the well-known Amos Minter back in 2000 that did the full restoration on this beauty. Vehicle features a 312 cubic inch, 245 horsepower Thunderbird Special V8 engine and is paired to a 2 speed automatic transmission. 3 tops will come along with this car, a Colonial White porthole hard top, white convertible top and a tonneau cover. Some of the best features on this vehicle will follow; a full chrome engine dress up kit, original spare and jack, working heater and defroster, power steering and power brakes that have been rebuilt, working power windows, period correct dealer under dash air conditioning, town and country radio, stainless steel exhaust system, front and rear bumpers that have been re-chromed, thunderbird wire wheels with new WW radial tires, two car covers (one flannel and one rain), concours showing wheels – wheel covers and tires also included, and much more. With all the drivability intact, the professional restoration with all of the documentation behind it and all the looks you hope to find in a first generation T-bird, this is definitely not one you want to miss! Call or email us today for more information on this fine ride!
