Ford's 1957 Thunderbird approaches perfection.. There were a variety of engines, all of them adapted to pulling off the line with alacrity, a situation in which the Thunderbird delighted. The body was extensively redesigned with new for '57 thin, canted tailfins and an extended rear deck with room for an enclosed spare tire. '55-'57 two-seat Thunderbirds have an enduring value and abundant tours, events and shows where they can strut their stuff. Ford, inexplicably to some but amply rewarded by vastly increased production numbers, replaced the two-seat T-bird in 1958. The Blue Oval recognized its oversight 45 years later in 2002 with the "new" Thunderbird, an updated but still instantly recognizable 2-seat T-bird, an acknowledgment of the original two-seat Thunderbirds' importance and appeal. This 1957 Ford Thunderbird has had a high quality photo documented ground-up restoration and is exquisitely done with straight body panels, impressive fits, good paint, nice chrome, attractive interior and an impressively detailed engine compartment with the almost-obligatory engine dressup kit on the 245hp 312 cubic inch Thunderbird V-8 engine. It is finished in Flame Red with matching vinyl interior and porthole hardtop. Power steering and a Ford-o-Matic automatic transmission, chrome wire wheels, wide whitewall tires and a later cassette stereo complete its equipment. The two-seat Thunderbird is at the core of car collecting, a car that is at once delightful to own, satisfying to drive, instantly recognized and appreciated and important in American automobile history.
