The 1957 Ford Thunderbird remains one of the most recognized Collector Cars in America today, admired by collectors, enthusiasts and everyone else.  The car presented at auction was subjected to a complete, body on, high end restoration. 

Drive Train
The numbers matching 312 V-8 was professionally rebuilt and runs strong and smooth.  The Fordamatic Transmission and Rear-end, also original to the car, were rebuilt at the same time. The car maintains rebuilt braking and suspension components with drum brakes all around.  

Exterior
The car was subjected to a complete body restoration will all panels presenting smooth and body lines looking good.  New weather stripping/trim was installed.  All stainless was buffed and polished to a shine.  Decorative pieces and other components were replaced with new where needed and the bumpers were re-chromed and shine bright.  The hardtop looks excellent and present with Original FoMoCo script glass.  The current color is not original to the car, but is a period correct Ford Thunderbird paint color.

Interior
the interior is completely new to the car and complements the striking chrome dash.  From the two-tone black/white upholstery’s the padded dashboard and the metallic trim elements, it all looks upscale inside the T-Bird.  Rebuilt seats, new carpet and a new headliner in the hardtop invite the drive and passenger to climb in.  An aftermarket radio was installed.  The soft top is the Hartz Cloth top that greatly enhances the look of the car.  In addition, the car has the snap on “tonneau” cover.  

This is an extremely nice car showing pride of ownership.  The current owner completed the restoration having restored many 1950s Fords over the years.  This car will not disappoint.
