Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to showcase this well documented & stunning 1957 Ford Thunderbird convertible in correct Raven Black (A) with Red Interior (XH). Incredibly, this T-Bird has its original window sticker. It displays an older quality complete restoration.This is believed to have always been a no-hit car. It is an absolute pleasure to drive and just gorgeous. We also have many extra parts (inquire).
This beautiful & well-optioned T-Bird is very interesting. We have the original window sticker detailing the features and pricing. The Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum is the location for many of our photos. Be sure to visit this great museum if you are in the Dallas, Texas area. The paint was restored in its factory color of Raven Black. There are some chips and minor imperfections on an otherwise straight and very attractive '57 Thunderbird. The interior features the correct red vinyl (XH) upholstery along with the power-operated 4-way seat & power windows. An AM/FM cassette stereo resides in the factory dash. The car was originally equipped with the signal-seeking Town & Country stereo.
The dash is in beautiful condition. The steering wheel is an updated smaller diameter unit. The current owner has had no one work on this car except Peter Leddy. He is a well know Thunderbird mechanic in the Dallas area. We have extensive paperwork on this great baby bird. Receipts dating back to 1999 and owner records back to all but the first 2 owners. Under the hood is the rebuilt 312 4bbl. Thunderbird Special classic Y-Block V8 engine dressed with a chromed oil cap & breather along with finned aluminum valve covers. This "dress-up" kit was specified on the original window sticker for this car. Additional features include factory power steering and power brakes. The updated air conditioning compressor works excellent. The AC keeps you cool in this car.
The original trim identification plate is intact and legible. The aluminum radiator is a special fit for the 1st generation Thunderbird & works great. The black canvas soft top is in excellent condition. This car also has a quality porthole hardtop. The wheels of choice are the factory 14-inch steel rims with 205/75R14 B.F. Goodrich Silvertown Whitewall radials all around. The trunk is in great shape. It is also filled with enough spare parts to almost build another 57 T-Bird. Just kidding of course. The undercarriage appears to be solid and in great shape throughout. These extra items are all included with the car.
