Description

Lot #1588 - In '57 Ford updated the Thunderbird with a modern Holley carburetor and a distributor that included vacuum and centrifugal advances. Those changes gave the cars more power and better fuel economy. Ford also gave it a larger trunk and bigger fins than the 55 or 57. This Rare Dusk Rose car has less than 700 miles since it received a professional, full frame-off restoration including a rebuilt engine, paint, interior and chrome. With the 240hp 312 engine, automatic transmission and power steering this car drives like a dream and everything works just as it did new. A great example of the Iconic Thunderbird, with a Dusk Rose hardtop, white softtop and white interior and of course nothing shows off a Thunderbird more than Kelsey Hayes wire wheels and wide white tires. It was driven to the CTCI Regional Convention in San Jose during August of 2013, where it won a Prestigious, "Gold Award" in Concours Judging and was elevated to Senior Status.
