You're looking at a powerful 1957 Ford Thunderbird in a rare and correct color. So take some time to look over all the details, but you know better than to pause too long on this icon.
The trim tag tells us this is wearing its factory-correct code-X Dusk Rose. It was only available in '57, and it has the kind of sophisticated glow that adds distinction through elegance. So, it's exactly the kind of beautiful pastel everyone secretly wishes was on their first-gen T-bird. This is the product of a later respray, and today it has the right mix of a good gloss but an overall finish that lets you drive this without getting nervous. And all your favorite hallmark elements are still in place in this example. The form-fitting chrome front bumper, hood scoop, rear fender skirts, jet-inspired tail lights, sporty rear bumper with integrated exhaust ports, and so much more that all instantly inspire nostalgia. It's a true classic, right down to the true wire wheels. And we bet you're going to love the way the whitewalls coordinate with the white hardtop with iconic porthole side windows.
The white hardtop shows you how nicely the color goes with the pastel paint, and so it's great to also have a creamy white interior for those days when you open up this classic to the world. This has terrific classic details, like the door panels with Thunderbird logos embedded, tuck and roll style inserts on the seats, and a bright machine-turned insert that flows from the doors and across the dash. Plus, you like that little details are working, like the courtesy light and Town & Country AM radio.
The larger D-code "Thunderbird Special" 312 cubic-inch V8 was a worthwhile option in '57, and so it's nice to still have the correct displacement under the hood today. The correct Ford red paint on the block, chrome air cleaner, and special Thunderbird valve covers all look great in the engine bay. The consignor also states that there were recent investments in this that really help make it a strong runner. They include resealing the engine, a new fuel system, and a rebuilt Holley four-barrel carburetor. It fires up readily like a classic that wants to hit the road. In fact, part of the refresh included new suspension components and the power brake system. And features like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, modern cruising tires, and a supple ride all keep this T-bird a true boulevard classic.
This is the iconic Thunderbird with all the right classic styles you love - right down to the factory color. So if you want a distinct and powerful icon, call today!
