1957 Ford Thunderbird
312 V8, RAVEN BLACK, ONE FAMILY OWNED SINCE 1962, BEAUTIFUL RESTORATION!!
HIGHLIGHTS: Beautiful Raven Black paint over classic black and white bench seat interior! 312 Thunderbird V8! Nice highly-correct restoration ready for a new home! Never offered for sale since 1962!
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and solid, and really looks fantastic. This car was restored to a very high degree in the past, and it really shows! This car appears to be largely original as far as sheet metal goes, and the body is super clean. All of the brightwork, emblems, etc. are in excellent shape. Even the underside is clean!
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The Raven Black is an eye-catching and lesser-seen color that really gives this Thunderbird a unique look. Complete with both a white hard and soft top, it is hard to beat this classic look. The paint looks fantastic, despite being a few years old, which really shows the pride of ownership this car has had since it was restored. Look around, and you'll find factory stamp markings just about everywhere–including on the driveshaft!
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The interior is what really completes the look on this T-bird! Black and white interior with the matching Raven Black exterior is a clean and classy combination sure to please any crowd. It really highlights the air of personal luxury these cars had when new! The interior, much like the exterior, is in great overall condition showing almost no signs of wear. Truly, this car received a top-shelf restoration.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: The 312 V8 runs like a champ, and starts readily with a turn of the key. This 1957 Thunderbird has that nice, subtle V8 exhaust sound you'd expect! The automatic transmission shifts smoothly, and this car is all the fun a classic T-bird should be. Despite being spec'd as a fairly low option car with no power options, this car is a delight to drive and would be considered by many to be a drivable show car.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: That classic 1950s Americana look! Plus, it has had the same owner for nearly 50 years!
WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: Manual drum brakes and manual steering aren't for everyone, but we don't think it takes away from the driving experience of this vehicle.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Nothing but a new home!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? Anyone looking for a nicely restored classic Thunderbird should consider this car. This is a fantastic example that is ready for a new owner!
