Description:

1957 Ford Thunderbird

NOTHING SCREAMS 1950'S LOUDER THAN A PINK 1957 T-BIRD.....YOU ARE VIEWING A VERY SPECIAL FACTORY ORIGINAL DUSK ROSE (CODE X) 1957 FORD THUNDERBIRD. AN ORIGINAL CALIFORNIA CAR, IT WAS DELIVERED TO NEVILLE FORD, DALY CITY CA., IN MAY OF 1957. IT WAS THEN ACQUIRED BY THE GM CADILLAC MOTOR DIVISION FOR UNKNOWN PURPOSES AND WAS NOT ACTUALLY SOLD TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC UNTIL OCT. OF 1960 WITH ONLY 147 TOTAL MILES.... INTERESTING AND ALL DOCUMENTED. IT WAS A ONE OWNER CAR FROM 1960 TO 2012 AND TO THIS DAY HAS TRAVELED ONLY 43K ACTUAL MILES...RECEIPTS FOR 55 YEARS OF SERVICE AND WORK DONE ARE INCLUDED, WITH MUCH BEING DONE BY NOTED T-BIRD EXPERT GILL BAUMGARTNER. BODY IS AS GOOD AS IT GETS WITH NO RUST OR COLLISION HISTORY AND IT'SORIGINAL SHEET METAL IS STILL IN PLACE. UNDERCARRIAGE IS VERY DRY AND NEVER UNDERCOATED. IT HAS HAS HAD ONE ORIGINAL DUSK ROSE (PINK) REPAINT AND IT STILL LOOKS VERY GOOD. CHROME, BRIGHT WORK, AND GLASS ARE EXCELLENT. CAR RUNS VERY WELL, IT'S AN AUTOMATIC WITH POWER STEERING, AND HAS JUST HAD A COMPLETE UP TO DATE SERVICE INCLUDING THE CHANGING OF ALL FLUIDS, BRAKES, EXHAUST, BATTERY, P/S REBUILT, AND WIDE WHITEWALL RADIAL TIRES INSTALLED. ALL LIGHTS, GAUGES, ETC. ARE IN WORKING ORDER. INTERIOR LOOKS LIKE NEW AND NEEDS NOTHING. I WOULD CONSIDER THIS A VERY HIGH END DRIVER AND CERTAINLY CAPABLE OF PLACING AND WINNING IN LOCAL SHOWS. CARS WITH THIS KIND OF PROVENANCE AND EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTATION HISTORY ARE ALL BUT GONE NOW OR IN NOTABLE COLLECTIONS...ESPECIALLY IN THIS PRICE RANGE...SO..SERIOUS BIDDERS/BUYERS ONLY. IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 5 FEED BACKS OR ANY NON PAYING VIOLATIONS PLEASE MOVE ON. ASK ANY QUESTIONS AND HAVE INSPECTIONS DONE BEFORE BIDDING. THANK YOU.
