1957 Ford Thunderbird

Most T- Bird enthusiast consider the ‘57 Bird as the best T- Bird of all time. It is of course the last of the original design created to go head to head with The Corvette. Ford put their best effort into creating what they called at the time a personal luxury car that had the styling of a flashy European Sports Car costing thousands of dollars more as with most unusual and collectable cars, it is the first series of cars that is the most valuable and also the last one in that series that ultimately is the most desired. There were several minor changes made to the ’57 Bird that made it unique and to most people more pleasing to the eye and a much better car to drive. The ‘56 Bird came with a continental kit for the spare tire which had an adverse effect on the way the car drove. All of that weight hanging over the rear end affected the handling, as you might imagine. The trunk room was enhanced with a slight re-designing which allowed for the spare tire to be stowed in an upright position which added even more space in the trunk. The lines of the car were enhanced by the addition of small tail fins that actually began around the door handles on each side and gracefully carried on to the tip of the fins.

The 57’s also had more powerful engines than either of the two preceding years which of course made them much more fun to drive. I have been working on the history of this particular car and have found several of the owners and also found out that this car was sold by the Guru of T-Birds; Amos Minter.  He sold the car somewhere around 2005. I have already verified this info but will continue to find more info for the ultimate buyer on this car.  For the last several years it has been living in a museum, owned by a well known collector in Houston. It is an absolutely wonderful car to drive and look at as you can see from all the photos that I have taken for you.  It is equipped with almost every option that was available in 1957 and recently has had air conditioning added to make it comfortable to drive on a hot Houston day.  The optional equipment includes; hardtop and soft top, power steering and brakes, those beautiful Kelsey Hayes real wire wheels with wide white radial tires, town and country radio, automatic transmission plus more. It has the big 312 motor with the 4-barrel carb. This car is also very nicely detailed underneath. Please call me and I will be glad to answer any questions for you.
