Stk. 1684 1957 Ford Thunderbird
Remember that scene in American Graffiti where Ron Howard is cruising town with his girlfriend in the front seat and Richard Dreyfuss is riding third wheel in the backseat? Then out of the blue, Suzanne Somers pulls up next to them in that absolutely dreamy T-Bird well, if you ever wanted to relive that very American Graffiti moment Weve got your car! The Thunderbird was an icon long before the movie came out and it has gone through quite a few changes over the years. But the 57 model has to be the most popular and adored of all. This particular T-Bird has been kept within the same family all its life and believe me when I say they spared no expense to bring her back to her former glory. Over $80,000 dollars was invested on a full frame-off, rotisserie restoration that is especially evident when you look underneath. The suspension and undercarriage is fully detailed in all the correct colors as it was when new and it absolutely sparkles! Under the hood with functional hood scoop lies an original, numbers matching 312 ci Y-block power plant. It too is magnificent to behold. From its gleaming chrome air cleaner, finned aluminum valve covers and its super sanitary engine compartment, you will realize no stone has been left unturned in the revival of this beauty. As you nestle down into the intimate cockpit, you begin to take in all the attention to detail that Ford paid in creating these fine cars. The machine turned dash beckons you to brush your hand across it as you admire the compliment of fully functioning gauges it houses. The 3- spd transmissions control lever rises up from the floor to meet your hand comfortably and its tactile feel from gear to gear, inspires confidence that this car is all quality. But the biggest thrill of all is had when you thread that classic rectangular ignition key into the dash mounted ignition and set that bird free. The whirling noise of the starter leads to the mixing of gasoline, air and ultimately, an intoxicating chortle that only a vintage Y-block can create. It lives and breaths, and waits for you to answer its call. Call 800-650-1055 or visit our website at www.autobarnclassiccars.com for more information. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS IS"
