Gallery Junction is pleased to offer this 1957 Ford Thunderbird.
The Ford Thunderbird, dubbed a “personal car” rather than a sports car upon its introduction in 1954, was a sophisticated reply to Chevrolet’s Corvette. The “T-Bird,” as it was nicknamed, was low slung and of all-metal construction, and it boasted a V-8 engine over Chevrolet’s anemic Blue Flame straight-six in the Corvette. Success was instantaneous, and a total of 16,155 examples were sold in its first year, as opposed to 700 Corvettes.
As sales of the Thunderbird increased, the 1957 model year brought about a redesign, resulting in what most enthusiasts consider to be the most beautiful two-seater version of the car. The new car was 6.1 inches longer, which allowed for the accommodation of a spare wheel at the trunk; the front bumper was smoothed out and dropped in the center; and the canted fins flowed back to big, round taillights at the rear. Fourteen-inch wheels helped to lower the car, giving it a slightly better stance. Regardless of sales topping 21,380 units for the year, the last two-seater Thunderbird was built in 1957.
The example on offer here is equipped with the 312ci 245hp V8, Fordomatic Automatic transmission, power steering, both the Porthole Hardtop and White convertible Soft Top and finished in its original color of white with a two tone black and white interior. The car runs and drives just as it should. It is an older restoration but maintained since, and comes out of a very lovely collection. It is a nice driver quality example as pictured.
