Recently acquired from a collector/owner who had restored the car as required over the years. The floor boards, trunk and all the typical rust-prone areas are completely solid and rust-free and the car has no signs of any accidents - obviously a garaged and cherished southern California driver only.
The car has a beautiful and very rare original factory color 'Starmist Blue' (Color Code F) repaint and its original two-tone 'Medium Blue & Light Blue' (Trim code XL) color vinyl interior with a bench seat, automatic interior courtesy lighting, rayon loop carpeting, half-circle steering wheel horn ring, winged 'Thunderbird' front end emblem, stainless steel window surround moldings, dual exhaust and matching Blue soft top!
The car's original 'D' Code 312 V8 engine is extremely strong and powerful and sounds absolutely magnificent. The transmission shifts smoothly though the gears and the power steering and power brakes and power windows make the car an absolute pleasure to drive. The car was completely stripped down and repainted including the engine compartment. Four new whitewall radial tires have just been installed. All the chrome was removed and re-chromed.
This car drives absolutely magnificently - must be driven to be believed - does not miss a beat and purrs like a kitten - drives straight as an arrow with no strange road wobbles, shakes or rattles - a truly remarkable daily driver that will give any modern day car a run for it's money! The transmission shifts smoothly through the gears and the car has four new white-wall tires! Please note that the car also boasts its original spare wheel and jack in the trunk along with original trunk spec carpet and lining, an extremely rare and unusual occurrence as you will no doubt agree!
This is a rare opportunity to own a beautifully restored and superbly striking original 'Starmist Blue' Dearborn, MI built (as is true of all Thunderbirds!) late in 1957. It is a great daily driving example of a 1957 Thunderbird in beautiful and highly striking condition throughout with it's original highly desirable 312 V8 'D code' engine and loaded with factory options including Power steering, Power brakes, Power Windows, original 'Town & Country' radio, heater and defroster and electric clock!
A perfect daily driver for the T-Bird enthusiast or collector or simply a great daily driving and very striking turn-key ready example of the T-Bird's finest year for any classic American car collector!
