The matching numbers 1957 Thunderbird Convertible offered here was restored approximately six years ago and it clearly benefits from careful ownership, storage and maintenance by its Florida-based owner. Attractively finished in red with a matching red interior, this example features a white hardtop, gleaming brightwork, dual rear bumper-mounted exhaust outlets, red steel wheels with full wheel covers and a set of period-style wide whitewall radial tires. A 312 cubic inch V8 engine, featuring an optional dress-up kit, produces 245 horsepower and is combined with a three-speed Cruise-O-Matic automatic transmission. During the restoration, an upgraded four-core radiatior was installed, ensuring trouble-free operation in warmer weather.

Ford's interpretation of the two-seater concept proved successful, both in the 1950s and throughout the ensuing decades. Beautifully and accurately restored, this particular Thunderbird is a very fine example of the last production year for the two-seat Thunderbird.
