1 FAMILY OWNED T-BIRD, 312 V8, AUTO, PWR BRAKES/STEER, PARTIAL RESTO W/ RECEIPTS

While the 1957 Ford Thunderbird is already an irresistible icon, it can only get better when you find one with an awesome story. So while this classic is well-past the half-century mark, it has been cared for by only two owners, and they are siblings! So how many other opportunities do you think you'll ever get to own a one-family restored porthole T-bird???

Two owners and one family... rarely do you get a chance at a pedigree like that 63 years later. It means this is a car that was cared for just like a third sibling to the two brother owners. It's also how you get a car that looks so complete, and even the odometer is believed to reflect actual mileage (averaging under 800 miles annually.) There have also been proper investments in keeping this car looking quite nice, and we have receipts documenting over $26k spent between 2004 and 2011. This includes time at a professional restoration shop where the current black paint was applied. It has a modern clearcoat luster that really loves to highlight the crisp panels of this carefully kept T-bird. And of course, there's the brightwork. It looks terrific from the hood scoop to the trim on the taillights. And the shining chrome bumpers ... Please ask for the full description.

1 FAMILY OWNED T-BIRD, 312 V8, AUTO, PWR BRAKES/STEER, PARTIAL RESTO W/ RECEIPTS

While the 1957 Ford Thunderbird is already an irresistible icon, it can only get better when you find one with an awesome story. So while this classic is well-past the half-century mark, it has been cared for by only two owners, and they are siblings! So how many other opportunities do you think you'll ever get to own a one-family restored porthole T-bird???

Two owners and one family... rarely do you get a chance at a pedigree like that 63 years later. It means this is a car that was cared for just like a third sibling to the two brother owners. It's also how you get a car that looks so complete, and even the odometer is believed to reflect actual mileage (averaging under 800 miles annually.) There have also been proper investments in keeping this car looking quite nice, and we have receipts documenting over $26k spent between 2004 and 2011. This includes time at a professional restoration shop where the current black paint was applied. It has a modern clearcoat luster that really loves to highlight the crisp panels of this carefully kept T-bird. And of course, there's the brightwork. It looks terrific from the hood scoop to the trim on the taillights. And the shining chrome bumpers are essential with the front one making up half of the car's face, and the rear nicely integrating the dual exhaust. There's also excellent detail work, right down to the fender skirts and bold red wheels behind the factory wheel covers.

The crisp black soft top looks nice against the black exterior, and we wouldn't blame you if you wanted to keep the iconic porthole hardtop always in place. But no matter if you decide to share the exterior with the world or just keep the secret to yourself, this one makes sure to really impress. The two-tone black and white has the sophistication level of a tuxedo. There was an investment here during the restoration to make sure the seat, dash, carpeting, and door panels all look and feel great. It has a terrific sporty style with the machine-turned panel that flows across the dash and onto the doors. And you get a full gauge package including a nice tach. It all has a well done vintage look, right down to details like the courtesy light. But if you look closely, you'll see the radio is actually a modern AM/FM digital tuner. It connects to a CD changer to make sure you can have the best driving music for classic cruising.

Under the hood is the 312 cubic-inch V8 that's correct for this D-code car. And with one-family ownership it's easy to take the consignor's word that it's original to this T-bird. This also received attention over the years, but everything was about keeping it looking stock. That's why you have the bold red block, pie dish air grabber with correct half gasket, and the artful Thunderbird valve covers. It looks like a powerful package, and the Holley four-barrel carburetor makes sure of it. But don't forget, a Thunderbird was made for cruising. That's why you have power steering and power brakes. Plus, additions like an electronic ignition and a trans cooler make it a nicer driver. The transmission was even upgraded to a smooth three-speed automatic in 2011.

The sale comes with build receipts, maintenance records, and restoration photos. You are rarely going to get a chance at a car like this ever again, so if you want a terrific T-bird with a terrific story, call today!
