This is an exceptional price for an iconic 1957 Ford Thunderbird. And it's a true cruiser meant to be enjoyed. That's why there's a slick red paint, the hallmark porthole hardtop, proper V8 power, and more.

The '57 Thunderbird is the one for many of us. It's the final year of the first generation, and it evolved to have an added hint of sporty style. So it's good to find one in a bold and bright shade of red. And the good gloss likes to highlight the clean and straight lines of this body. Brightwork is at the core of the car's appeal, and so it's good to see it complete everywhere from the hood scoop trim to 1957's sleeker bumpers. A car like this also needs to get the details right. Rear fender skirts, whitewall tires, and the exhaust still routed through the rear bumper are all about the style that would make the first-gen T-bird a true legend. And of course, the porthole hardtop is so desirable that this is one of the few convertibles that people enjoy more with the roof in place.

As good as the hardtop looks, you'll also be proud to share the interior with the world. It has a timeless two-tone. You have bright red carpeting, a plush white seat, and the two colors merge on the door panels. This has the right classic pieces, like the machine-turned dash panel and classic steering wheel with Ford crest at the center. But you'll also notice worthwhile upgrades. The AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette upgrades your driving music, and the auxiliary gauges trio gives you a fuller picture of what's going on under the hood.

This T-bird has proper Ford power, but the Cobra valve covers let you know it's of a younger variety. After all, the mighty 302 cubic-inch V8 was about a decade away when this Thunderbird was born. But today we seek out this motor because of its hardy nature and love for upgrades. That's why this one has a Holley four-barrel carburetor and an Edelbrock Performer intake. It's a strong-running powerhouse that makes a dignified tune out of the dual exhaust. And this is a nice cruiser with features like power steering and a three-speed automatic transmission.

Complete with owner's manual, this Thunderbird is impressive for giving you all the iconic pieces you love and doing it for an affordable price. So don't miss this deal. Call today!!!
