A 1957 Ford Thunderbird with a cruiser-ready color combo is a true standard in classic elegance. So it would be one of the last ones out there that people would think could also blow their doors off everyone else. That\'s the beauty of being a rare E-code car with the correct 312ci V8 with dual-quad carbs under the hood!
Colonial White and wide whitewall tires are a very sophisticated way to arrive anywhere. But this is also a hot E-Bird, so the red pothole hardtop adds spiciness to its elegance. So yes, this car gets noticed for more than just its rare power package. Plus, there\'s a terrific shine to all that iconic bright work. It starts with the large grille cradled by the 1957 car\'s exclusive smoother and contoured bumper. There\'s intricate bright trim around the windshield, rear fender skirt, and hardtop. All this chrome ends in the bold jet-inspired rear with a bumper so integral that the exhaust exits through its corners. It has a great cruiser style because, after all, a dual-quad T-Bird was made for driving. You will need to put some additional work into it if you want to upgrade from a car show to concours. But considering 1957 is often the most sought-after year, it\'s believed less than 1,500 ultra-desirable E-Birds were ever made. The constant demand always seems to justify any level of investment.
Since the red hardtop looks so distinct, we\'re especially glad you can remove it and have a full red interior. There are nice features like plush carpeting, power windows, a grippy color-matched steering wheel, and side wind wings, and the dash light greets you when you open the door. It\'s such a vintage feeling that even the AM radio is there for display. Plus, Thunderbird fans always love to see the premium Dial O Matic seat. It lets you know that a memory power seat isn\'t just something you find in a modern Mercedes! We especially like the \'57 T-Bird because of the sporty feeling of the layout. The machine-turned dash was always a nice feature, and this year also got a revised gauge layout that put everything right in front, including the handy tach.
Since the engine makes for such a desirable classic, this one ensures it\'s ready to be displayed on day one. Everything is in place, from the premium Thunderbird valve covers to the correct washer fluid bag. So you can tell it has been properly maintained to remain a strong cruiser. And, of course, you\'ve noticed that distinctive air cleaner by now. That\'s the sign of the dual four-barrel carburetors of the rare E-code 312 cubic-inch V8. This 270 hp performance upgrade gave the Thunderbird the ability to run with the Corvettes, and you can even control it with the three-speed manual transmission. But superior muscles is not the reason you buy this car. This was Ford\'s luxury vehicle. An E-Bird Thunderbird is about having the confidence to out-muscle lesser classics but the maturity to enjoy the leisure that power steering and a relaxed suspension provide.
This is a rarity, elegance, and fun all-in-one icon. So it\'s your choice to envy this T-Bird on this page or be the one creating envy with it out on the streets. Call now!
