1957 Ford Thunderbird

Complete with hard and soft tops

Description

 

Conceived to challenge Chevrolet’s Corvette sports car, the iconic Thunderbird debuted in October 1954 and was one of the first models produced with Ford’s new overhead-valve V8 engine. Introduced in two-seat ‘personal car’ form, the Thunderbird was intended to appeal to image-conscious younger customers, and beat the Corvette hands down in the sales war thanks to its superior V8 engine and greater refinement.

A low, sleek two-seater, the Thunderbird offered amenities not found in the competing Chevrolet Corvette, most particularly rollup windows, offering comfort and convenience options tailored to an affluent market. Ford’s product planners hit the market dead centre and over 16,000 Thunderbirds were assembled in the 1955 model year.

 

This lovely example is said to be in good condition throughout, the thunderbird comes complete with a soft top and hard top and remains one of the most stylish looking cars on the road today. With all the relevant documents this thunderbird is ready for a new owner. Ready to drive in the summer months.
