1957 Ford Thunderbird Additional Info:

First generation Thunderbirds are all about style, nd this 1957 T-Bird does it the best. With an unbeatable factory color combination, mazing interior, umbers-matching 312 V8 under the hood, nd presented exceptionally clean everywhere, his is desire on wheels. This car is so clean, nd so well restored, t just might be the cleanest 57 T-Bird we've ever had at Streetside Classics-it's that nice!One of the world's most beloved cars, here's just no way to make a '57 Thunderbird look bad. But when you get it right, hey can be downright amazing, nd the high-quality finish on this two-seater is a testament to a life well lived. The professional repaint of the factory-correct code-F Starmist Blue looks stunning. It's set off with uniform gaps all around (particularly the hard-to-fit doors), nd the optional fender skirts make it look long and sleek. Nice chrome accentuates this '50s icon, nd the exhaust still exits neatly through the rear bumper. The bright factory wheel covers with white F-O-R-D centers look great and match perfectly with the whitewall tires. Plus, he darker blue folding top gives this American icon a touch of European flair. The two tones of blue on the exterior (when the top is up) is a theme that continues on the inside, oo. And you'll really love showing off how the lighter blue on the seat inserts and door cards seamlessly matches the exterior color. Style and luxury were the true hallmarks of this classic, nd that's why it came with rare features for its time, ike the power seats and power windows. Not only do those function perfectly, ut so do other original components like the heat/defrost and courtesy light. It's all displayed in an engine-turned panel that flows across both doors and the dash. This frames many of the intricate styling touches such as logo embossed side panels and the power steering wheel. Beyond that you could see the Thunderbird was getting serious about competing with the Corvette with its full gauge package, ncluding the large speedometer prominently in the center. The larger D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '57, nd it only gets better when you know that this one carries its original, umbers-matching piece. It has been cared for just like the rest of this immaculate T-Bird with tidy hoses, ig red block, nd shiny components. Of course what really gets this motor noticed is the factory dress-up kit with finned valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. Make sure you look at the undercarriage photos to see that this high level of presentation is not just in the engine bay, ut also throughout the whole car. But as much as this is a show-stopping T-Bird, t was also meant for cruising with great features like the power steering, wo-speed Ford-O-Matic auto transmission, nd highway-friendly rear gears.This car shows off its cherished quality right down to the included original dealer invoice and owner's manual. It's the concours-quality Thunderbird that you can pick up from us on a Saturday and win your first trophy on Sunday. Indeed, his car is actually much nicer than even Ford ever built it!
