      Top-down, two-seat motoring is supposed to be the ultimate expression personal luxury, and this 1957 Ford Thunderbird does that perfectly. But with a manual transmission and a four-barrel on the Y-block V8, this pristinely white roadster might also have a slightly more sinister side. One of the world's most beloved cars, there's just no way to make a '57 Thunderbird look bad. But when you get it right, they can be downright amazing. So the high-quality finish on this two-seater is a testament to a life well lived. The professional application of the code-E Colonial White has a hard shine the factory could never have made nearly 60 years ago. Now when sunshine hits the scooped hood, there is a deep luster that makes you want to treat this car like it was made of porcelain. But more than looking great, all the details of what make a good T-bird are in place,. There's nice panel alignment so you can close the doors with confidence, fender skirts that follow the contour of the body, and a snug-fitting folding roof that looks great with a contrasting black that is as appealing as the whitewall tires. Plus, plenty of chrome keeps this a '50s icon, and the exhaust still exits neatly through the rear bumper. There's even a fantastic set of 14-inch wire wheels to cap off the premium image. Red interiors always look fantastic on white cars. Thoughtful luxury was a true hallmark of this classic, and that's why the white tuck-n-roll seat inserts in the seats will make the interior and exterior looks seamless when you drive with the top down. There's even an upgrade to an AM/FM/CD player so you can listen to much more modern tunes in this very vintage ride. But besides great accommodations, this Thunderbird does have a bit of an aggressive side. The machine-turned panel that flows across both doors and the dash always looks performance-oriented, but when it's combined with the large cue ball shifter, it feels downright speedy from behind the wheel. Plus, you could see Ford was getting serious about competing with the Corvette with its full gauge package, including tach. The larger D-code 312 cubic-inch V8 was a nice option in '57. Items like the new radiator, ignition system, blower motor, and power steering unit all tell you this received the right maintenance over the years. But when it comes time to park this T-bird and show it off, you'll be glad it has the factory dress-up kit with finned valve covers and the pie dish chrome air cleaner. The drive home will be just as exciting. The V8 inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor and exhales with authority through a newer stainless steel dual exhaust system. While you can get some serious power out of the V8, especially with the control of the three-speed manual transmission, this easily settles into the nice and comfortable ride provided by Ford's personal luxury convertible. This is a beautiful Thunderbird that represents the last of the classic early two-seaters. So when you can find one like this that drives great and is beautifully finished, then you know you want to be the first in line to grab it up. Call today!
