This 1957 Ford Thunderbird Convertible has a particularly cool color combo, proper V8 power, and desirable features - including both hard and soft tops. And with all-around good investments, it makes for an icon that stands out in all the best ways.
Colonial White always looks great on a first-gen Thunderbird. This timeless color looks glossy today from a professional respray. There are minor signs of enjoyment that tell you it's a true cruiser, but the impressive shine makes it the kind of car you drive and show with pride. And the reason you're going to showcase this one is because it's stylish. The brightwork looks terrific from the hood scoop to the trim on the taillights. And the shining chrome bumpers are essential with the front one making up half of the car's face, and the rear nicely integrating the dual exhaust. The factory wheel covers, whitewalls, fender skirts, and jet-inspired tailfin are all part of the style that makes this a rolling icon. Plus, you get the choice to button-up this car fully with either the black soft convertible top or the white porthole hardtop.
The white hardtop gives this car a star quality, and the black soft top gives it a timeless elegance. So if you can't decide between the two, just take the roof off and showcase both colors with the black and white interior. The seats, dash, and door panels are intertwined with this two-tone, and everything has a feeling of proper investment. And we know you want black carpeting so you can always hop in at any moment without worrying about the dirt on your shoes. You'll love slipping behind the stylish steering wheel, and this cruiser feels sporty thanks to the machine-turned dash panel, floor shifter, and full gauge package with tach. While this is quite a vintage atmosphere, they did discreetly add a modern AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth in the glovebox so that you can choose your best driving music.
The larger D-code "Thunderbird Special" 312 cubic-inch V8 was a worthwhile option in '57, and so it's nice to still have a year-correct block under the hood today. In fact, the full package looks stylishly correct with Ford red paint on the block, chrome air cleaner, and special Thunderbird valve covers all looking great in the engine bay. It inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor and exhales with a dignified tune through the dual exhaust system. The healthy torque of the V8 is all about making sure this swiftly and confidently reminds you that this is Ford's personal luxury convertible. It's especially true thanks to great cruising features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, and upgraded front disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with the original shipping/window sticker - a truly rare find. This is a Thunderbird of distinction that was restored for a driver of distinction. If that's you, call today!
