This 1957 Ford Thunderbird has all the best details you love about the first generation that launched the icon. It has a sporty yet sophisticated red-on-red style when it\'s a convertible, and when you put the hardtop on, the white roof goes with the wide whitewalls for a subtle two-tone. The brightwork is brilliant in all the best places, including the rear bumper with integrated exhaust, factory wheel covers, windshield, and hood scoop. And we especially love the look of the \'57 front end that arguably had the cleanest and most well-integrated bumper/grille design. It all makes for a package that\'s sharp, luxurious, and detail-oriented -- right down to the super-clean undercarriage. But the best detail of them all is under the hood. The VIN tells us this is a factory E-code Thunderbird, which means dual-quad V8 power. And since you\'ll be talking about the powerhouse so much, they even made sure that the clean and detailed style of this T-Bird extends to the engine bay. Incidentally, according to the owner, this car has never been in the rain or washed, in the traditional sense, since it has been restored, which is also believed to be reflected on the odometer. HIGHLIGHTS *Flame Red has a deep gloss to set the right premium tone *Brilliant chrome bumpers *Detailed brightwork, including factory wheel covers, windshield, and hood scoop *Correct badge-side hardtop to go with sporty XE full red interior *White hardtop and whitewall tires make a nice two-tone *Terrific details like wind wings and rear fender skirts *Red interior looks sporty and sophisticated against the red exterior *Power windows *Power seat *Detailed style: working dash light, plush carpet, and machine-turned dash panel *Attractive engine bay with a clean look and correct decals *Rare E-code 312 cubic inch V8 with dual four-barrel carbs *Three-speed automatic transmission *Power steering *Power brakes *Ultra-clean undercarriage This Thunderbird represents a shining and detailed example of one of the coolest stories around. The late 1950s was all about Ford versus Chevy. They both came out with personal sports cars during this time. Both missed the mark a little in their time with the Corvette initially being underpowered and the T-Bird fulfilling those who needed something this luxurious in its earlier years. So when the Vette upped its game with V8 power, this \'57 Thunderbird came back with even more attitude. You saw it in details like how the tire went back in the trunk to be sportier and the gauges got a race-ready attitude. But while all T-Birds revived that, this is one of the special examples that also really delivered some serious horsepower to go with the more powerful style. The rare E-code dual-quad V8 was actually rated above the fuel-injected Chevy for horsepower to let it reign supreme, and yet, it never lost this sophistication that is the hallmark of the Thunderbird. It\'s a rare time in history when the factory understood the balance of power and poise, and as you look over every inch of this car, you can see it has the shining restored style to celebrate that legacy correctly. That\'s why it\'s a terrific collector vehicle that you need in your garage. Call today!!!
