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. THIS THUNDERBIRD ALSO HAS BOTH TOPS, INCLUDING A COLONIAL WHITE PORTHOLE HARDTOP AND FACTORY CONVERTIBLE BLACK FABRIC TOP. ALL LIGHTS, GAUGES, ETC. ARE IN WORKING ORDER. INTERIOR LOOKS LIKE NEW AND NEEDS NOTHING.THIS FABULOUS THUNDERBIRD STILL RETAINS IT'S FACTORY ORIGINAL GLASS HEADLIGHT BULBS, ORIGINAL FIRESTONE GUM DIPPED SPARE TIRE, AND THE ORIGINAL FOMOCO SEAT BELTS, ALL INDICATIVE OF A LOW MILEAGE VEHICLE. THUNDERBIRDS WITH THIS KIND OF PROVENANCE AND EXTENSIVE DOCUMENTATION HISTORY ARE HARD TO FIND IN THIS PRICE RANGE. SO....SERIOUS BIDDERS/BUYERS ONLY. PLEASE ASK ALL QUESTIONS BEFORE BIDDING. INSPECTIONS ARE PERMITTED AND ENCOURAGED AS CAR LOOKS EVEN BETTER IN PERSON. IF YOU HAVE LESS THAN 5 FEED BACKS OR ANY NON PAYING VIOLATIONS PLEASE MOVE ON.THANK YOU.
