1957 Ford Thunderbird for sale in Darien, IL 60561


This 1957 Thunderbird is a true rust free west coast car. lt was sold new at Tillamook Motors in Tillamook, Oregon and the original Ford gate release paper from Ford will go with the sale of this vehicle. It states the exact factory options and equipment the car left the factory with and still retains. I purchased the Thunderbird from Moses Lake, Washington - the desert side of Washington State. The previous owner repainted the Thunderbird in its original Thunderbird Bronze color with Colonial White hardtop and tan Hartz cloth convertible top. It has always been stored in a climate-controlled garage and is a rust-free beauty now stored in Illinois.


This car is an excellent running, driving original 60,000 mile rust free Thunderbird. The previous owner had the transmission rebuilt and the body was repainted in it’s original Thunderbird Bronze color over a rust free body - it’s AMAZING! The dash pad and seat upholstery have been replaced due to seat and dash foam deterioration and the Town & Country radio has been converted to AM / FM/ IPOD capabilities and sounds outstanding and still retains its original look and function, such as scanning, unlike other Thunderbird replacement radios that look like replacements. No short cuts were ever taken in maintaining this original Thunderbird, only maintenance and upgrades to this vehicle have been done to keep its originality. This vehicle still retains factory markings on some of its components and its 1957 black wall spare tire and correct jack assembly as a testament to its originality.


The radiator has been replaced with a new Griffin Aluminum Radiator and water pump (both high volume) and all new freeze plugs have been installed. The original radiator is included also, for originality. A rolling hardtop stand and car cover go with the car along with spare parts such as manuals, extra gauges and the original tail lamp lenses which were replaced with new old stock (NOS) replacements.
