Description

Lot #814 - This '57 Thunderbird is a California car that is the recipient of a full body-off restoration with just 21 miles driven since completion. It is finished in factory correct Coral Sand with white interior, and it is very well equipped with both the optional soft top and auxiliary hardtop, plus the Ford O-Matic transmission, four way power adjustable seat, power steering, heater, engine dress up kit, fender skirts and brand new Kelsey Hayes wire wheels with new vintage style BFGoodrich bias ply tires. In the restoration the upholstery was upgraded to leather, and an AM/FM cassette radio was added, which is designed to fit into the stock place in the dash. The quality of the restoration is nothing short of superb, and all mechanicals were rebuilt and/or restored, including rebuilding of the original 312cid V8 and automatic transmission.
